Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

Ditto, Exo. Can people PM me places to get an amp?
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.
My amps are in the mail
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!
Nep roots grow down and out, in like what others said, a "ball". some neps such as rajah, bical, ampullaria, and a few others get super massive rootballs that generally call for the plant to be "overpotted" since coincidentally enough, these are the plants that seem to throw the biggest fuss about being repotted, especially bical and rajah....so im not sure what the size of the plants are that you are receiving, but if they are rather small id say start them out in a 6" pot and go from there, ampullaria are very fast growing species, so if your conditions are ideal for them, be prepared to have to cut the plant back and do a repot in a year or so to a 10 gallon or more sized plant to accommodate for basal growth and root growth, because they will spread...
Neps do not form a tap root if that is what you are asking. Like a carrot or a ceph. It is a fibrous root (a complex system of smaller root structures). Like grass.
