Here is a photo of its flower:

Also would it be a good idea to repot it while it’s flowering? I was unable to find any LFSM at my local Bunnings so I can’t repot right now.

All ventrata are sterile females, but that flower looks male so I am confused. Sure you don't have a ventricosa?

It was identified as a Ventrata by the guys in the forum before. The new pitchers that have come out look different though. Maybe I should take another photo and do another identification? I thought the different look to the pitcher might’ve been cause of stress. Growing conditions aren’t exactly the best

These are the only newest pitchers it’s made so far. They look so different from each other

It's a Ventricosa, possibly the 'Red' variety.

The Nep ID bot agrees with me: https://www.carnivorousplants.co.uk/res ... dentifier/

I guess my plant is gonna be single for the majority of its life.
