i cant seem to find any info on this particular clone.... i bought one from CN awhile ago, and its just settling in and beginning to pitcher but its a ways to go before they open or anything, just wondering if anyone else out there has this plant in their collection... i understand its a female clone, but would like to see some photos of pitchers, etc.... Thanks
Ventricosa "Denver" is known for it's pitcher size. It has pitchers that are 2-3x bigger then the normal ventricosa. It's a awsome plant. I have 2 cuttings that I got from michell and on his plant he had a basal that was about 4-5 inches across and the pitcher was about 6-7 inches!

I got ventricosa "Denver" from Philcula about 4 years ago. If I remember correctly, it was given to him by a friend that lived in Denver Colorado. But I don't know who. It is a female and the pitchers do get HUGE for a ventricosa. Here are some old pics.
Average lower pitcher next to a one gallon pot.
Uppers are much smaller
I'll try to get some new pics when I have more time. Hope this helps. Mitchell

Jeremiah, I thought it may have been you, but obviously I am mistaken. Maybe he will chime in and help clear this up? caesium, Wow, they look a lot alike. I'm curious to find out where this plant came from. Mitchell

Really!?!? ;D Did you live in Denver at the time you gave it to him? Otherwise, I really don't know where the name came from. If this ventricosa did come from you, do you know where Peter got it? Mitchell
Just saw this thread. I don't have any information on this plant. I DO know that I did not receive this plant directly from Jeff. I didn't know him back then. I got my cutting from Chuck Powell some 10 years ago at least. He claims he had gotten it from a friend who lived in Denver. So...if Jeff gave a cutting to Chuck Powell, then there's your answer. I got it from Chuck who got it from Jeff who got it from Peter who got it from ?
I have this one of this variety too, mine is female. I think it came from Chicago Botanical Gardens...
These are some really bad companies, all shells of Plantron Inc., so don't order from them unless you want small and dead plants they don't want to refund:
Farmer Seed and Nursery
Four Seasons Nursery
House of Wesley
Richard Owen Nursery
How do garbage companies like these stay in business, ripping people off year
Ah, now it's clear. I have a plant that looks just like the one shown. However, if this came from Chuck, by way of Denver, then I'm pretty confident that it came from Terry Chatterton, not from me as I stated earlier....
