    How big will they get? I was bored, so I thought I'd take a pic of my N. ampularia again. My latest N. ampularia pitcher is 3 1/2 inches long, not including the lid. Check it out:

    Do you really have the amp growing next to the Heliamphora? If so, they both llok pretty good.

    Regards,

    Joe,

    Yeah, they live together in a little glass-topped terrarium. I took the top off for the photo. The terrarium itself is on a shelf under a growlight, where I have a bunch of neps growing in the open air. The temperatures would qualify as intermediate. I put the amp in the terrarium just to give it a little extra humidity. Same for the Heliamphora, which seems to like it in there, too.

    Hey Spec,

    I'm not aware of it being so. I bought it while visiting Peter D'Amatos place in May, labeled as just a N. ampularia (speckled). Since then, every pitcher has been bigger than the last.

    My porch plants (ventrata, Miranda, Coccinea) just kicked out their biggest pitchers by far. The ventrata so love the larger pots I moved them into they are trying to climb out onto the pergola. The vertical growth since I got them has been astounding. I'm a NOOB. Just use the internet and read the instructions kids.

    As for those pitchers. Very nice. I just received a much smaller amp. I did not know that they got that large, frankly. See above, "NOOB."

    I did just receive my copy of "The Savage Garden" though. Thanks to the 47,000 people who recommended it on this and every message board in the world.
