    Ok, I have a pot around that size. Anyway, back to the original question. I know that n. ampullaria makes basal rosettes, but does it make offshoots on runners, actual new plants, and if so, does it need a big pot? (for the runner)

    Transplanted! Do you think it will go into shock long?

    When I repot my plants I leave the rootball completely intact. I just turn the old pot upside, take the whole thing out, put it in the larger pot and fill in with new medium. I haven't had a Nep go into transplant shock yet.

    I have had plants produce shoots from deeply buried stem. These poke up on the soil surface just about anywhere in the pot. If you unpot and have a look, they look like a runner as they have rudimentary leaves and are elongated between the barely visible nodes. I suspect this is what your referring too and how this idea of underground runners came about.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    actually, I'm talking about actual runners, not basal shoots connected underground to the main stem with no root system. (with their own roots and everything, ulike other neps) Check the nepenthes university under species cultivation- n. ampullaria. I transplanted it my trying to get the whole chunk of soil and the plant in one piece out of the pot and got a lot of the soil.

    I know what you're talking about but I'm not sure I've ever seen that happened except in species such as N. glabrata. Tony has a good example of how it looks.
