I'm looking at my little rescued nep from Lowes, and it seems to be happily recovering from past abuse. It is generating new leaves and its first pitcher is now open. This pitcher, along with a few others developing are hanging well over the edges of the 4" pot it is currently in... I would say the whole diameter of the plant is probably closer to 7-8".
My question is what rough pot size should I expect this little fella to eventually need? I'm not sure what type it is, probably a ventrata hybrid of some sort. How much 'ground support' do they need for the big leaves and eventual vines? How extensive do root structures get? Are the lower pitchers supposed to rest on the ground, or is letting them hang over the pot edges ok in the long term?
I'm trying to figure out if the little guy needs transplanting into a bigger pot right now; I think I need to get it out of the cube bottom into something with better drainage anyway, so if I'm gonna 'upsize' now would be a fine time.
