    Make sure you get a long one, 'cause once this plant starts growing, it takes off.
    heres a pic of my plant last year when I got it...it was in a 6 inch pot.

    and the same plant taken about 5 minutes ago. It is in an 8 inch pot now.

    Ill use CNCrefer's method (Thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]) and use some kind of stick for the plant to vine

    CNCreefer: Thats a nice plant u got there, can i ask what light level is it in? im also deciding if i should add fluorescent lights to my dim window sill
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    It grows outside year round. The porch where it is located is on the east side of the building, it gets direct sun fron sunrise up to about noon or so, then bright shade for the rest of the day.
    As a side note, all my sarrs, drosera, VFT's and a few smaller highland neps are on the opposite side of the porch. They get more sun than the ventrata, except the neps, which are located a bit farther back, they get a bit less sun.

    I might add that the humidity fluctuates from 25 percent up to about 75 percent. It averages about 65 percent. I never mist the plant either.

    I think 4 feet should be enough for a while.

    Right now the vine of the plant is bent ove(moved towards the light). Would it be harmful to tease it back to a straight position?
