    Question Can Nepenthes ampullaria grow indoors

    I am just wondering. I want to try it indoors with no terranium. Is it possible?

    if you keep the temps above 70F and provide it with adequate/excessive lighting i dont see why not.

    Nope....not unless you have indoor humidity in excess of 70%.....I tried growing one without a terra.....it nearly died.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    it would be difficult to say the least without a long acclimation period,
    but with a terra its relatively easy...
    here is one of my N. ampullaria, my N. ampullaria "Harlequin" that i grow in a terra

    Yes it is. I'm not sure where some of the other information is coming from but it's absolutely possible. RH is whatever it wants to be (probably around 40 or 50%) and it took all sorts of lighting abuse (as can be seen in the picture). This is one I use to grow side by side with the entire rest of my collection ranging from N. mirabilis to N. bicalcarata.

    Mine looks like that too. Grows on the same shelf as the phalaenopsis orchids and a cattleya, half the size of French3z's though:
