    Spectricosa question

    Does anybody who has a Spec x Vent recall the picthers it made when it was a youngling? Mine will color and splotch up like it's dad and I have some peristome variegation, but I can't get any of the red of the mother... Is this just a phase or do I just have a green variant of this hybrid? I'm...

    heli, nep, cobra and vft pics

    Just took some pictures outside after feeding the plants some crickets...if the pitchers are wet it's because they get a good spray afterwards to make sure their food went down OK. (Anyone ever force-feed a pervillei a small cricket? It slides right into the pitcher, like with a ceph...)...

    Ventricosa (c) - Black Peristome

    Hooray! It arrived today. I was hoping a fresh pitcher would have been on it, so I guess I will have to wait a little while to see one in all of it's glory. This sucker is big... The pitchers are rather woody. They are much tougher than a ventricosa red. Bonus!

    Veggie eater?

    Well according to wikipedia N. ampullaria is a vegetation eater: N. ampullaria has largely moved away from carnivory and acquires a substantial portion of its nutrients from digesting leaf matter that falls to the forest floor. It is thus partially detritivorous. The species has developed...
