    I was checking my neps in my basement under there grow light and i noticed how big and leafy my nep 'miranda' is IT has big leaves on it not many pitchers though as the humidity isnt that high for them so basically they just grow leaves and tendrils and as soon as it goes outside in the summer it will pitcher. But this type must be rather large leaved as none of my other neps have leaves as big as this or near it. I looks like i should put it in a 10 inch pot as it would fit in well. Its currently in a 6 inch pot but it overflows it.

    Then pehaps it is time to repot soon. How big across is the plant? A mature N. Miranda would have no trouble filling a 10" pot full of roots!

    i just measured it and the plant across is 19 inches! I am sure it has tight roots but it seems somewhat happy. when i got it it was rootbound in a 4 inch pot. At the time i was running low on soil so i just stuck it in a 6 inch but i could repot it. It will be a monster nepenthes soon.

    I was gonna say, the one I got from Phil during his sale last summer was a good 24" leaf to leaf /no tendrils, with pitchers around 12" not counting the lid. It was comfortable in a 12" pot.
