    small or slow growing neps

    Hi all. After searching I'm still confused as to the best nep for my situation.
    I'd like a small and/or slow growing nep for my terrirum. One that will not outgrow my space for at least 18 months. After that I can deal with larger quarters.
    My terr right now is 24" long, 12" wide and 18" deep. It has daytime temps of 80 degrees f. with 65% humidity and nighttime temps of 70 degrees f. and 75 % humidity. I've been tracking this for some time now and it remains fairly constant.

    I've had a baby alta in there last winter which did fine and is now outside for the summer but would like to add something more "dramatic" in pitcher color.

    thanks
    chibae

    N.belii would be a good match.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    N. lowii is slow growing from what I hear. I believe it is a highlander though, perhaps you can try to lower the temp. at night to suit it better.

    I found a site that's selling Clipeata, and I would like to get one before they go extinct in the wild.

    Aristolochioides is a vining plant, that has quite long internodes, so I disagree with the comment of aristo being small. my friend's plant is young, but is already 6 inches tall.
