    N. xiphioides is a really small species. My adult or near to adult plant is not as tall as my hand! They are really pretty little gems, but often confused with N. gymnamphora.

    N. villosa (if you can care for it)
    N. lowii is relatively small for a short period of time. But eventually gets monsterous.
    N. inermis is pretty tiny but vines as it ages.

    Hi,

    maybe it would be more helpful for Jerry when he could explain his growing conditions first. The plants mentioned above range from lowlanders to ultra-highlanders and due to this they won't florish in the same environment. Maybe a hint on difficulty of growing the species recommended would also be helpful.

    As this question comes up every few months won't it be an idea to create a fixed topic with a short description of the various plants mentioned? (In pre-WWW-times the 'FAQs' were quite useful and popular.)

    Cheers Joachim

    Rock on, Joachim. I was going to say the same thing, but you beat me....by a day or so, lol.
    A lot of the highlanders stay small, as was previously mentioned, but for lowlanders, I think the best may be N. adnata, IMHO. It seems to look nice in it's comapct size.

    Regards,

    Joe
