    Dwarf lowlanders?

    I was just wondering if there were any really small LL Neps, preferably with maximum leaf spans of a foot or less. I'm looking for something that can be kept in my covered light-cart without outgrowing it. Thanks.

    N. campanulata. Perfect cute little lowlander. However, I have seen some mighty specimens of it as well...but is no where close to other neps. It also doesn't vine and forms offshoots on runners. Makes for a beautiful plant.

    How big were the "mighty" specimens?

    12" in diameter is a monster for this species, with 6-8" being found more commonly (although I've only seen a few this big.)

    N. bellii is a small plant, as well as N. adnata.

    EDIT: Hermopolis was faster lol. N. argentii and N. glabrata aren't lowlanders, however. I wish.

    I got an ampullaria because I read that they stay small.......mine is 2ft in diameter now.

    You might also consider N. northiana.

    Even though it will get large, because it is so slow growing, you could keep it for awhile, and in that time your growing space situation could change so that you could accommodate it once it got larger.

    I tried northiana, it reacted badly to the high humidity and lack of airflow and got a bacterial infection.

    The amp on the other hand could care less.
