    They grow in a ball, but it really varies species to species. Amp and Bical roots are massive and completely different than what you can expect from an Alata or Maxima but they're the same consistency.

    They're rather delicate and think of them as sewing thread and not wires like on other plants.

    Timmy, if you're considering buying an Ampullaria, please reconsider. Them bad boys' don't take kindly to any cultivation errors. They're very expensive, require a fair mount of heat/humidity, and you would be much happier with a highlander based on what you tell us about your conditions.

    I think they're awesome and beautiful plants and I understand the charm as well, but they're very expensive to keep and critically more difficult than your average plant.

    Start a thread on nep suggestions! We'd be glad to help man.

    Are you nuts?!?! Most amps are cheap as dirt!!!!

    Not hard either, but they do need it hot and humid.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Are they really? I'm sorry I'm a little far behind, two years ago the average price for an Amp was like 40-60 bucks for a medium sized plant. I'm a little behind.

    I don't think Timmy owns any Neps dude. I have limited experience on lowlanders but the average beginner probably will not have the facilities to make them work.

    I've seen the kind of Ampullaria people get on ebay/terrarium places for cheap though and they need to be pampered until they kick off.

    You ordered an Amp in two minutes?!! When I used to slack off at work I'd shop for plants for like 2 hours before sending in the order. Take plenty of pics when it comes in!
