    Seedjar yes prefer a terrarium specimen
    mikulas yes that helps a lot!
    I suppose what i'm looking for is something that doesnt vine much or something compact.

    I'd say go with the ampullaria. They are cute, too. I have a green and a spotted. I've had both for over 6 months now and though they replace their pitchers, there is little to be seen in terms of growth. Great plant and loves to be kept rather wet, more so than other neps. They are not forgiving, however, when it comes to lack of water.

    Sounds like a job for argentii, or a cephalotus. But if you find argentii, let me know, because I'm going to buy one as soon as possible!

    Most neps are big... Small ones are either rare and expensive or hard to grow.

    I would recommend for terraria, from my list:
    muluensis x lowii (highland, maybe intermediate; slow-growing)
    thorelii x alata Kondo (lowland / warm-intermediate; grows fairly fast in warm conditions)

    Both of these can be bought for less than $20 each, and neither is particularly hard to grow. Others on the list are not that hard (talangensis x veitchii, campanulata) but cost more than $20...

    I used to grown an ampullaria. It had 10" leaves and 3 feet of upright, inflexible vine. In terms of long-term growth, this is not a very small plant....

    N gymnamphora!! stays quite small--the smallest of any I've seen. Hortus Botanicas has carried them.

    Small... terrarium... sounds like a job for a N. ampullaria. As someone mentioned it will take some pruning, especially when it starts putting out basals, but then you would have several small Nepenthes. That would be my recommendation. Especially since they are so easy to grow, and so variable in color.
