    N. Ventrata- how big does it get?

    I've looked around but I can't find any info that says how large a N.Ventrata can get.

    I saw one person's thread and his pitcher was huge. (same plant) But he never said how big it actually was.

    I just re-potted my plant and I'm wondering how much bigger it might grow.

    The pitchers can get a good 6+ in. long

    The plant can get quite large if you don't cut the vines
    I had some that were growing in big urn pots with upside down tomato cages over them that were well over 6 feet long

    Is that one single plant? It looks like it ambushed someone as they were enjoying their afternoon sip of coke..

    That's really cool! I hope mine gets that big.

    Just for reference: If I were to trim the vine (to keep the plant smaller), where would I trim it?

    You can trim nearly any nep between the nodes (where the leaf attaches) when it is in its vining stage, and it will send out at least one (but usually more) off shoots. Once those get big, repeat the process, and you get a Nepenthes bush! Not really, but you end up with something other than one long and lanky-looking vine.

    Hope this helps!
