|Also you should be able to fit the little cutting plants into something much easier than the long vine, which I will grant you can be a real pain.[/QUOTE]|
I hear you there! I only have a 10 gallon tank and it was just to happy taking over my other plants. So I gave it the boot about 4 months ago and it only has produced one pitcher and a shoot (thank goodness![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img].
Eventually neps will outgrow just about anything. They are the biggest carnivores by far. There are some small ones like bellii, among others. There is a thread on that around here right now.
When you cut the plant that will only put your space problems off another month or so. Cuz, then, hopefully, the cuttings will start to grow a lot also. So, really, your "problem" will get bigger. But not right away. A cutting won't make a long vine any time soon.
There are lots of threads around about cuttings. Good luck!
It's been one of dem days

I suspect there is more to it than dry air causing your lack of pitchers. *This is one of my five N. ventricosa that I transplanted today (It's now in a 6½" pot instead of a 2"x3" pot [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] ). *As you can see on the hygrometer/thermometer in front of it, the humidity is low (27%) and this is a typical daytime reading for me. *Does yours get a temp drop at night? *Mine drop from the mid/upper 70°F range to the upper 60°F.

How come chicken fingers are bigger than buffalo wings?
My Grow List
My ventricosa has been living in the lap of luxury: 85ish during the day. *70ish at night. *60% humidity (lows), 100% (often) as the high. *Every night the humidity gets over 90%. *
Thanks, weather. *Today it's FREEZING, it dropped below 70 just before sunrise. *BRRRR!
