    I'm thinking of getting my first pitcher plant soon, so far I've only had sundews and VFTs, but my terrarium isn't the largest so I'm wondering what small pitcher plants are easier and better for newbies?

    Hi!

    I think N. ampullaria would be a good choice (if you got one, please send me a cutting as wel [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] )

    Greets and happy growing,

    S. psittacina and its hybrids would work well also.

    young S. Rubra's, and some younger heliamphora's will work too.
