    I have a rather small terraruim with a few plants in it. The problem I am having is that my Neps. are getting to tall for it. Is there anyway I can make them grow shorter? Also what Neps. are natural squat growers?

    What Nepenthes do you have in it now? And are they getting enough light? They will grow taller faster in lower light levels.

    Yes there are some that don't get tall as fast, either because they don't vine quickly or grow quickly or have long internodes. Very few will remain a squat rosette indeffinately however. Regular pruning will also keep them in check.

    I have a really tall nep. I fixed the problem by buying a huge (tall) terrarium. They have them at petsmart.
    that is, if you're still wondering 2 years later. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
