Nepenthes ventricosa "Black Peristome" December 16, 2011
Reviewer: Erin Thacker from Lacey's Spring, AL United States  
I received a small, healthy, and vigorous plant acclimated to lower humidity. It is thriving on my windowsill with bright sunlight and frequent waterings. I am very happy with this plant.
