    I just read a bit about H. Tatei, as I found a big one for sale... the article said they can grow up to like 10-12 feet tall pitchers!!!

    I think the article is mistaken.. H. tatei will form a woody stem which can get fairly tall if supported.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Ah well that does explain a few things... Do they grow fast?

    do you mean does it 'climb' fast? no.. after several years on my bigger plants they look like the day I potted them.

    Any Heliamphora is also capable of (rapidly) elongating it's stem if it gets shaded or overgrown by other plants.

    You do not have to worry about Heliamphora taking over anything. (Well, maybe your bank account). I have had some Heliamphora plants for 3 years that are still only an inch tall.
