    lol. I hear ya. There have been times when I've had to stack 1.5" seedling pots on larger Nepenthes in 6" pots, being shaded by the leaves of the bigger plant. Definitely not ideal, but what is a person to do? Of course that would be surprisingly difficult with cacti since they generally are the same size as the pot... lol. Good luck!
