I've been really taken back by my Ventricosa lately, normally confined to the less than desirable areas of my yard, about 6 months ago I decided to repot to a 20 gallon, fertilize, give it a big cage to climb on, and position it w lots of sun. Well, it absolutely loved the new conditions and maybe has 50-75 pitchers and is starting to send out some massive lowers. Here is one I'm very proud of:

Wow what a giant!! Has it ever flowered for you?
Constantly! It's a female, and has one that is just about to open and a few more just emerging from the leaves. (I counted 12 growth notes when I transplanted it 6 months ago or so) So I'll be looking for pollen in then next couple weeks (preferably anything dark, or with truncata in it), the only male I have flowering is a green speckled ampullaria.
