    Size problem! Ugh!

    My N. ventricosa is getting on my nerves now. Last year I repotted it to keep it from tipping its pot over, guess what is doing now! Why can't it just grow staight up instead of to the side! Do I have to repot it AGAIN?

    Gravity my friend. They will grow sideways unless they have something to grab on to.

    A few things:
    • Stake it up
    • Get a hanging pot and let it fall over
    • Overpot it big time.


    How big is it?

    I reccomend overpotting it like xvart said. Try a 6 inch pot.

    Good luck!

    But if you want basals, it's good that it's tipped over.

    The pot? It only sits at an angle like this / and the plants growth point is still higher then the soil level. Would that really cause basals? i will measure it tommorow.
