    I'm just going to mention the size. The Jungle Pot should be OK for a little while but remember, Nepenthes are (in general) huge plants (which is why I like 'em [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ). Only a few highland rarities will stay relatively small-even then I think they'll be much too large for a fishbowl type terrarium for the long haul. In my 4 ft x 4 ft x 2ft terrarium I'll only be able to house a couple plants when they mature. even then I'll be using the machette to keep em under control.
    Lowlanders (which is what they generally sell at PFT) usually get very large, the truncata has a possible 2.5 meters across (I think that's about 8 feet) with 2 foot tall pitchers! But humungous plants are a ways down the road so most any Nep will fit... for a while!

    Good luck!

    Question

    Hi !!
    Sorry, nepenthes gracilis it is like Stefano1 said.
    I also forgot to quote Tony Paroubek. The strength of the sun depends from geographical area (as Tony Paroubek said) and the strength can more or less overheat the terrarium (as nepenthes gracilis said) .

    Kind regards
