What is going on with this ventrata?... i give it 5 hours of direct sunlight and it is standing next to a sanguinea and a rebecca soper that look good. Some time ago I had problems with its pitchers not totally forming and leaves all green, now it's the complete oposite: dark big...
I have a young nepenthes from Lowe's that was marked ventricosa and it does have one true pitcher that looks like a ventricosa, but it has another pitcher that looks more ventrata like. :scratch:
Here's the ventricosa-like pitcher.
And here's the ventrata-like pitcher.
I've been growing carnivorous plants for over 10 years. Most of that time I lived in Brooklyn where my growing area was limited to two small windowsills. I moved upstate a few years ago and my collection has grown exponentially. I am interested in all types of carnivorous plants but...
ISO Neps or Seeds
Hi there fellow CP lovers! I am in search of fresh nepenthes seeds. Not too picky about what kind, but no ventrata, alata, Miranda seeds please. I've never grown neps from seed so I am curious to see how I do. Thanks and happy growing! -Sara

Hey guys, I've grown a lot of different temperate CPs over the years with much success, but haven't really gotten into nepenthes besides by my 6 year old ventrata.
I'm thinking if venturing into intermediate nepenthes, because I can get closest to their conditions. I have a grow rack that gets...
My name is Morgane, I'm 23 and I started growing carnivorous (and other) plants since last August. I already liked plants before, but the fact that I lived in a north oriented student room with a tiny window kept me from growing anything else than a bonsai. Now I live in a south-west oriented...

Hey guys, I've been spotty being on in this last year. So I've really been focused on temperate sarracenia and sundews the last 8 years, but I've been getting the itch to explore more nepenthes besides my old Ventrata (which was labeled as alata when I bought it).
I was on ebay today looking at...
Hey everybody, I bought this old lady's orchid/plant collection last week and she had a medium sized n.ventrata. Seeing how I've have a giant one that's taking over my greenhouse rafters I really have no room for this species. I'm not a species snob I just have zero room for plants I have. I...

Hi yall, ive been growing cp's for a few years here and there, and since I'm somewhat settled in my current place, I thought I'd set up a more permanent grow shelf. I dragged a free-standing wooden shelf from the backyard to my bedroom's south-facing window, put a few trays of live sphagnum and...
Since the other N. Ventrata vine lasted about 5 minutes I'm willing to trade a 12 node ventrata vine from my other plant. This form has a very pronounced peristome and larger pitchers (6 or so inches), it also has a growing point coming off of the side. I will be happy to trade for any...
I have a 14 node N. Ventrata vine that I would quite honestly like to get rid of. This form of N. Ventrata has more of a flushed dark red appearance compared to my other two. I'm interested in other nepenthes (rooted or unrooted). Thanks ahead of time!
