    Mine easily grows 5+ feet a year... that's a lot of terrarium space unless you keep cutting it back.

    Personally I think it would be a waste of money for a ventrata. I'd save it for a more demanding plant.

    N. ventrata grows like crazy, like endparenthesis mentioned. They are tough plants not requiring a terrarium to grow. I grow mine as a windowsill plant.
