    Hello all,
    I was wondering what Nepenthes could fit inside a 30 gallon? Thanks all who respond. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Ok, it probably isn't going to fit, or if it does it will outgrow it within a week! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] I am getting by with my 20 gallon one for the last time, after I figure out the greenhouse heater equipment I will have nothing more to worry about as I will also have a backup heater via an emergency occurs.

    Sure why not. Just make sure that the palnts aren't fast growers like an N. tobaica!

    I am able to fit a 14" diameter N. truncata in a 10 gallon tank, in a 5" pot. The problem is, the pitchers are getting too large for the tank (they are hiting the lights), and so I will need to place it in a larger pot under my metal halide lights. I have many 4" potted plants in ten gallon terrariums, so a 30 gallon one should be great. Hope that answers your question.

    Do you mean what Nepenthes can grow in a 30 gallon tank and not outgrow it size wise? Some like N. tentaculata will not get overly huge but will periodically need pruning back. Others like N. lowii will last many years before they will get too large for the terrarium since they grow fairly slowly.

    Other smaller growing highland Nepenthes that come to mind:
    N. xiphioides
    N. argentii
    N. muluensis
    N. talangensis

    I guess alot depends how many plants you want to keep. The more plants the less room for each.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
