    besides N. ventracosa 'red' which must be the most popular N. ventracosa what other varities are there?
    I know of black peristome (I lost on ebay). But what else. Any pictures?

    In addition to the two varieties you mentioned, I grow an all green form, a giant variety, and a red peristome variety. There are others I've heard of, but never seen. There are also a number of plants distinguished by location.

    Greetings,

    Par O Bek orchids lists quite a few varieties, with pictures http://www.exoticplantsplus.com/NventricosaRed.htm


    I came across this while doing a search on google one day http://www.exoticaplants.com/databas....ite.htm I don't know if the plant consistently produces pure white pitchers, or if it's a freak mutation that comes up every now and then.

    Wow that white one is amazing. Now if only we could get someone who can read Japanese to translate for us maybe we could find out.

    It's Chinese. The guy who grows it has an Internet shop here in Taiwan.

    According to the text, he acquired the plant "in spring", it didn't pitcher at all for months, and then all of a sudden - "very unusual for a highland Nepenthes" - it started pitchering like crazy in July, despite temperatures hitting the forties (Celsius) for days on end.

    Most of the text is a flowery (no pun intended) description of the plant, but the last paragraph gives some more hard data:

    "This is an extremely hardy plant. Despite being exposed to up to 40 degrees Celsius under direct sun, it just won't stop pitchering. This plant came from Japan. (I'm) not sure if its peculiarities and toughness are the result of (horticultural) plant selection, or if the plant has been altered in some way."

    HTH a bit.
