    We are having a little discussion about this plant:

    I'm pretty sure it's a ventrata but images are not very clear. Can anybody confirm?

    I think you're right - ventrata. N. alata has an almost cylindrical upper half, I think, while this has the hourglass profile of ventricosa pitchers.

    I'd guess its a ventrata as well. It looks just like mine, but with less coloring on the pitchers

    Another vote for Ventrata here. I think the pitchers are light because it's in such a shady spot. That's the bushiest one I've ever seen though... wow. I need to let mine do that.

    N. Ventrata. N. alata has a clear defined petiole with no leaf blade extending outward for a fair distance from the stem. It is clear in the second photo the leaf blade extends outward from the petiole all the way down to the stem. A trait coming from N. ventricosa.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
