    Other Mini Indoor Nepenthes?

    I have Nepenthes Maxima 'mini' growing well, and I am enjoying it.
    Are there any other 'mini' type of Neps that stay small and can be grown indoors by a window or under a lamp?

    None huh?
    Are there no other known compact plants? Or are there just none that will grow indoors?

    The species that stay "small" can be tough to come by and may also require a bit more care. I recommend looking for hybrids with aristolochioides and campanulata in them just to name a couple!

    "Mini" is in reference to pitcher and leaf size in the "mini" maxima plants. The plants do not stay small by any means.

    Bummer that. Understand the same thing applies to "mini" roses.

    Which still then begs the Q .... ARE there any neps (hybrids or species) of which you more learned members are aware which will stay small/more compact -- perhaps more likely to stay in a rosette growth habit rather than vine wildly? We who are greatly space challenged would love to know of some.

    There are some that stay fairly small but most are difficult to find, expensive and are sometimes difficult to keep. N.argentii is probably the smallest species but it commands high prices and many of the available clones are difficult to grow. N.diatas and N.adnata are both moderately "small" plants and are available from time to time bit they still get pretty large. Nepenthes in general get very large eventually and require quite a bit of room. Very few can be considered good long term terrarium subjects.

    I'd say N. glabrata. It generally stays pretty small!
