    Hello everybody! Here I have another question about Nepenthes ventricosa. Is it possible that ventrocosa's pitchers can porduce wings? I recieved today some ventricosas that I purchased, and they are very beautiful, but when I compared them with my old ones, the pitchers of the new ones are green and have a little wings on the top, near the peristome. The wings look like there was sometime ago wings, but now there is only a small portion of it left.

    So, is it possible that there are ventricosas with wings and green colored? I thought that they were all red and with no wings. I am wrong? Or it is possible that I boughtan hybrid?

    As always, I will thank all the help that you guys can give me;-) by the way, if you have pictures of your ventricosas, please, share them with us:-)

    Do you have a picture? Not sure if it's normal or not... also, I don't believe ventricosa is all red. Pinkish maybe.

    Generally all Nepenthes produce ladders (wings) with lower pitchers. Perfectly normal and attractive!

    Hello again! Ok, they are not red, but deep pink. But is there any variety that is green? I could think that when pithcer is young is green and then while matures it becomes red, or pink. But these new ones have some large pitchers that are fully green.

    About the wings, so it is normal that they have? the thing isthat many of the pitches do not have full wings, most of them only have at the top of the pirtcher, it looks really funny.

    Here are the pictures:







    Thank you for your time;-)

    Looks pretty ventracosaish to me... but I am no Nep guru (I would like to become one eventually LOL). Younger plants/pitchers can be green, I know some of mine were for awhile. Where did you get the plant from?

    Wings are one of the most common traits of a Nepenthes plant. N. ventricosa will develope light pink to cream colored pitchers, there really isn't a "green" form.

    The immature pitchers look different than the mature ones, which have essentially no wings. Your plant looks like a young ventricosa, but it's too early to be sure. Coult be a N. x ventrata too.
