    Personally if you are really dead set on terrarium for growing, I would suggest maybe a cephalotus or a heliamphora? It has its own particular requirements of good air movement to prevent fungal infections, but on the whole, I think everyone would agree that it is a lot more "terrarium" compatible than any other pitcher plant (north american/asian). Check them out...they are really nice too and may make interesting display pieces.

    I recommend N. adnata and N. glabrata as small species for your terrarium but am not sure if they are readily available at your end. N. ampullaria can be kept compact by trimming back. N. hamata is rather slow as a juvenile so that is another one you could consider. Otherwise, hybrids like ventricosa x aristolochioides, or spectabilis x hamata are nice too!

    I've only seen one N. glabrata and that thing was huge, not at all a good terrarium plant

    I just received my first mature glabrata plant from Wistuba and it is puny and miniscule compared to the adnata. It is placed in my 2ft highland tank with another 10 pots of Nepenthes.

    Either I am getting the lower end of the deal or you've seen a monster. LOL
