Nepenthes ventricosa is a wonderfully easy plant to grow in a variety of growing conditions, and have beautifully waisted pitchers when mature. Most of the commonly available varieties of this species have uniformly-colored pink to red pitchers. But the they are also usually from the same clone or two. These plants are randomly selected from a large number of clones in tissue culture; so there should be some variability, AND there should be male and female plants in the mix! The pitchers of this species have a beautifully scalloped peristome (lip), which turns a deep reddish color as they mature as well. Adult plants can be over two feet across! All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow, not bareroot as you find with many other suppliers. For those who are keeping records, this is Borneo Exotics' item BE-3771.
