    I was wondering can I grow N. Ventricosa and N. Truncata in the same terrarium? Thanks.

    sure! Intermediate conditions would do fine for both of them. The truncata will get large pretty quickly though so I hope it's a large terrarium

    Yep, I never had my Truncata in my terrarium as I ordered it when it was producing mature pitchers and almost capable of flowering, so I put it in a 1 ft diamter pot that is 1 foot deep so 1ft by 1 ft or 30 cm by 30 cm. And the palnt is already getting past the pot rim about 3-6 inches so it is about a 1 and 1/2 foot diameter Truncata in a 1 ft pot. Picture? Here!

    I have a 3 gallon terrarium and I just recently ordered N. Truncata from PFT. Will this work for now, Nepenthes Gracilis? Thanks. Nep. G, do you any more pics of your Nep. Truncata?

    Ohh yeah! But what Tony and I are trying to tell you is that EVENTUALLY you will need a very large space for it.It should do fine in a 3 gallon tnak for a year or 2 or longer if it grows compactly. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I can also get more pictures of it if you would like to see more. Not a problem at all! Just say so.

    I was trying to see if the three gallon terrarium would be perfect for the N. truncata, that's all. I just want to get prepare before it comes [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]. After that than I will worry about the plant get big.

    (Asking politely) Nep. G, I would like to see more pics of the N. Truncata. Thanks.
