    You can take a cutting of it or cuttings if the vine is particularly long. What species is it?

    Yes you can do what NepG said or you could take another 10 gallon and put it on top of that tankso the big nep will grow into the other ten gallon do you get it?

    I've got my Neps in a 29 gallon aquarium which is taller than a 10 gallon. In a year or so I figure my plants will be too tall and I will have to build a grow room or take cuttings.

    Some of my plants are from cuttings, taken from a mature plant, and would never fit in a 10 gallon tank. If you want your plants to reach their full potential I would recommend a larger tank or grow room. You could also focus on slow growing plants or plants that don't climb.

    Remember that the width of your growing area matters too. Leaves and pitchers on my plants which have been grown squished against the side glass have a tendancy to stay wet and rot so you need a place where they won't be touching the glass or side walls.

    My fastest highland plants are (measured in diameter):
    N. fusca (4" to 40cm june 02 til june 03)
    N. rajah (3" to 12" from june 02 til june 03)
    N. hamata (3" to 12" june 02 til june 03)
    N. ramispina (3" to 10" oct 02 til June 03)
    N. x Judith Finn (3" to 50 cm from jan 02 til june 03)

    The slowest ones which stay small longer for me are:
    N. lowii
    N. macrophylla
    N. inermis
    N. mikei
    the above are perhaps only 1" or so bigger in diameter than when I bought them last summer, they seem perfect for someone without a lotta space (in the first couple years) so long as you can provide the steep night time cooling.

    I have been looking into a bigger aquarium. I cant put them in pots because of elavation. I have been looking for a greenhouse shelf so i could just put them in a hanging pot.
    I love nepenthes
