Please label them so we have a definitive photo of which is which. I find it incredible frustrating to not easily be able to tell between the two. Since N. Ventrata is said to be sterile, I don’t want to waste my time with any flowers on them. But many of the plants I got that I suspect to be ventrata were not labeled.

Please help educate me and others.

It's worth noting not all ventrata are sterile - The most common clone that gets sold in box stores is thanks to some tissue culture side effects, but the hybrid itself can seed just fine.

Here's a ventrata x alata that wanted me to say that to bring in some variety :D
