    Is this a ventrata or ventricosa?

    Hey all. 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. Which...

    Hello from Rochester, NY

    Hello all, 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...

    Nep ID

    This was my first CP. No ID, but it's clearly pretty happy! I think it's a nepenthes x ventrata. Can those of you with more experience confirm? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Do I take the plunge?

    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...

    Hello from Belgium : )

    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...

    Neps seeds/ebay

    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...

    Free nepenthes ventrata

    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...

    Grow shelf advice!

    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...

    N. Ventrata Unrooted Vine for Trade

    Hi, 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!
