    Have you noticed any difference in growth from these in low light, Tony? I've been told that's how to do it, and the one that I have that's off to the corner of my terrarium under the shade of a spider plant seems to do better than the one that is in more direct light. They don't seem to want to pitcher unless the leaves are crowded and scrambling. But, I haven't had much experience besides for my two specimens. Is there anything to this, or am I just conflating my experiences with rumors?

    Yeah N. ampullaria is not good for true highland conditions. But it does well in intermediate conditions. My grow-room is usually 60 at night, and 80 during the day, but gets down to the low 50s at the coldest point in winter, and I have three different amp varieties growing well for years now.

    For lowlanders, they are pretty tough.

    If I want to keep it a small plant, do I just keep trimming back the stem? I read in the Savage Garden that if you want to keep a low-growing plant with lower pitchers, you just keep cutting back the stem.

    True?

    Definitely likes it steamy and warm. Grows like a weed when given 65 degree nights and 90 degree days with full humidity.

    In my experience it more or less barely does anything in highland conditions.

    Warm to hot conditions. As far as I know, more humidity helps in speeding up the plant's growth and increasing the pitcher size. Another thing is the light intensity. It appears that the basal rosettes or small young plants prefer it shady. However, when it vines, it can take strong sunlight like any other nepenthes.

    This thread is so old. I currently have an ampullaria growing in my terrarium very successfully.
