    Most Nepenthes can grow into big bushy plants with flowers all over, but that usually takes about 20 years. It takes 3 to 5 years before the plant starts to produce flowers (the more it grows,the more flowers it puts out every year). Most nepenthes aren't that big when they reach maturity, but they can create big flower vines. If they ever get too big to handle, I would recommend gettingva greenhouse for them. I waited a 5 years before getting a greenhouse, and by that time my N. Miranda was already 8!
    Your nepenthes should be fine for the first few years of growing, but if you decide to get more, get ready to make room, especially for a miranda!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    N.spectabilis gets a leafspan of about 10in......given that they make multiple basals over time, they can eventually become a cluster several feet across.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
