    They are pretty cute...I was contemplating getting another because I see the ones in this country haven't all be snapped up yet and because mine's doing so well. Of course, 5 years from now they'd *both* be big huge Nepenthes truncata bushes!

    Yeah I'm planning on a Truncata/Truncata hybrid in my near future to see what the fuss is about. How manageble can the plant be in size if I religiously prune it or will I have to give it away when it gets too big?

    You can't really do much to prune them, the leaves get the size of a dinnerplate anyway. I have a Pasian that is 2ft across in my window, my mom has one that is about a foot under lights, and I'm getting one of the black ones very soon. I love truncatas.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I think I'm just going to grow it out for like a year until I have to give it to somebody here. I just think they're beautiful and I love the comical leaf shape. I love all neps really.

    Yeah but seriously beautiful plants guys. You guys are lucky!

    Well, here's an update - since last time, it's grown in another leaf but not made a new pitcher yet (3" pot still) -

    It's still in my ICU tank, intermediate conditions with "very gentle" lighting... the substrate looks kind of funky but I'm not going to disturb it while its doing so well
    What you see is the node's growth.
