    Under ideal conditions, at what size would the following species flower? (height? leaf size?)

    1. N. Mirabilis
    2. N. Ampullaria
    3. N. Thorelli
    4. N. Rafflesiana
    5. N. Ventricosa

    I have a couple of these species/hybrids of these species, and I just need to know at what size they flower. ALL replies welcome.


    Thanks,

    That's a fine sized plant. You can see one of my very large Nepenthes in my profile.

    Just about 8 inches tall, that pic was a while ago and the pitcher is fairly new seeing the red peristome, which will be darker as it ages to a mature hardened pitcher. The peristome is fully expanded and the neck has straightened up alot. SO if you think you have a tiny pitcher wait a while for it to fully mature and harden off then measure it!
