    Yeah, that tiny hamata i have is in a 6 inch pot right now, and i think it looks nice there. It leaves room for "companion plants" (aka weeds) to grow in, which i think gives it a fuller look.

    I've heard that Neps grow best in wood boxes, is this true?

    I place my neps in hanging pots which are 14". I give them lots of room.

    hmm, I'm not sure if they like wooden orchid baskets better. It would allow for more aeration though. So neps that tend to be more epiphitic may grow better in those. However it also could be circumstantial. Dang 14" pots. If I had the room I'd pot all my plants in like 5 gallon pots. I have my merriliana in a 2 gallon pot and I fear in another 4-6 month it may very well need a 5 gallon

    If i had room, and money, i'd have all my neps growing in 10 gallon pots, but i'll have to make do with the already too little room i have now.

    If you put one little one in a bigger pot what do you do with pithcers that were hanging over the sides of the first small pot that they come in? Do they get tucked in or something maybe.

    Crunch, sometimes they have to just lay horizontal, though I try to get them to stand upright. That's only a problem on some plants, though.

    Well I traded two of my four (soon to be five) lowlanders for some highlanders. I still have my bical (no way I was trading that) and N. mirabilis 'Pink Thiland', I will soon have N. bical x. amp though. I traded off my amp 'speckeled green' and rafflesiana 'giant clone 99'. I will have to fill my lowland terrarium again though. I unfortunatly put a 6 inch wooden orchid basket and a triangular 8 to 2 inch triangular basket on my homemade plant stand. They dry out too fast. I have to water them twice a day some days. OTher then that everything is starting to get pitchers again.
