    I would not choose a glabrata
    Once it enters vining stage, well it grows faster than any nepenthes I've seen. Faster than my ventricosa, sanguinea, or even my alata. Once mine entered vining stage it produced a 3 foot vine in about a year. Unfortunately that vine died back while I was on vacation as the plant got a little dry.

    I'd go for N. bellii. It's a small lowlander, but hates having its roots disturbed. There's always tentaculata and maxima "tentena" as well. We have a very compact alata with beautiful red splotching at Meadowview.

    Seriously...my amp is a beast...I got the species because I was told that it stayed compact....mine sure as hell didn't! You cut down one vine and two more take it's place....it has no interest in making ground pitchers, just quick growing basals.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Adnata is small, tobaica is easy to prune and keep small.

    Plenty of light is the key to ground pitchers, without it they vine like crazy searching for more light.

    Hmmm...interesting...I read that they pitcher nicely in shadier conditions. *Shakes fist at "The savage garden"*

    Glabrata is great, stays small for years. Mine never got more than 8" across. But once it hit a foot tall it started vining. 6 months later it was pushing 4 feet, so once they vine they rocket to the moon. mulesnis x lowii...now that one stays small and grows so darn slow, beautiful to boot. spectabilis x aristo, for me, stays as small as glabrata, but isn't finicky like glabrata is. Also, consider singalana. I think it eventually puts on size, but mine grows as slow as lowii. I've had it for 5 years, and it's 5 inches tall, 6" across. As long as it doesn't get over 80F it does ok for me.
