    So I put a couple spare N.Ventricosa that I got on clearance from homedepot last year into my wifes snake tank.

    After one month they are still doing well and the Snake has not killed or damaged them.

    Actually he likes to hang out on their ledge and strike down onto the dead mice we toss in.

    Yeah they had more pitchers but about a month and a half ago we went on vacation and my main Nep tank dried out more then I was expecting. No damage to the foliage but allot of my pitchers dried up. They are all growing back now.... lessons learned the hard way.

    Oh and the snake is a Children's python.

    My tank is still doing well, the snake has decided he likes to sleep behind the neps. He has even stopped using his favourite bamboo tube and sleeps out side all the time now.

    I am thinking perhaps the ball python is allot larger then the children's python and can do more harm? also I used to have tons of artificial plants in the tank, he is accustomed to the green. Perhaps you should start with some fake plants and when the novelty has past put some neps in.


    Here are some updated pictures, you can see the snake up top in his favourite spot and I also just added two N.rafflesiana I just got from home depot.
