    Which Nepenthes is the smallest? Smallest leaves, and hopefully stem, but pitchers can be like, huge, they dont matter... This is basically a question for choosing a Nep for a terrarium... Do neps go well with Helis???

    Hmm..... Nepenthes aren't really the smallest growing plant but I would say for the smallest most compact plant would go with N.Campanulata which grows a rossette of short neat leaves with medium sized pitchers on an EXTREMLY compact stem. Very Rare also.
    N.Argentii which only makes long tendrils is also a tiny Nepenthes. Tiny but astounding and neat pitchers. Nice and compact stem and leaves aren't too long.
    N.Ovata is pretty compact too pitchers are nice and fairly large when grow to maturity.
    N. Aristochioldes is pretty small and compact for a while, then it will tend to climb. I think this is about it for small,compact,neat Nepenthes most will become a fairly large vining mass of leaves,tendrils, and massive pitchers!

    N. glabrata is supposed to be an ideal terrarium plant because it it is really small and compact.

    The smallest nepenthes I've ever seen were the glabrata ant the ampullaria , the biggest I've ever seen was the mirabilis ant the rafflesiana .

    Parasuco Phill Mann www.scarnivores.com has campanulata, I saw it the other day. If you are going to order from overseas then he is probably the cheapest. I don't know of anyone in the US or Canada that has it. I am kicking myself for not having got some too.

    Did you see the online magazine article about it a few months back, can't remember the name of the mag but if no one else here can tell you I'm sure I can find the link.

    Cheers, Troy.

    Hi,

    http://www.malesiana.tropicals.com.m...s/nep-cam.html

    www.google.com will give you more than 100 links to "Nepenthes campanulata" or "Nepenthes aristolochioides" in less than 1 second.

    You can grow Heliamphora together with Nepenthes, but this is only recommend for Highland spezies. (N. campanulata grows at 300m !)

    Heliamphora does also need VERY bright light to grow well...

    I grow them under a 70W high pressure sodium light and they still aren't as coloured as the Heliamphora in the natural habitat.
