    I'm just looking for some general information on this Nep. It has always intrigued me (as I'm sure it has many others) because of its sweet looking fangs [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    First of all, is it easy to grow in a terrarium? If I obtained one this is how I'd be growing it. Are there any online retailers that sell this species? I haven't seen it anywhere that I frequent, but maybe I'm just not looking in the right places.

    Right now I'm growing Nepenthes sanguina in a terrarium and it's doing great, but I'm just looking for a cool new Nep addition to my collection. Thanks!

    Its fairly easy under lowland conditions but it doesn't like to be moved. It also gets very large so I wouldn't recommend it in a terrarium.

    Sanguinea is extremely easy. Especially outdoors in southern california.

    I have one that is over a year old I started from seed in a terrarium.
    They get large and will out grow a terarrium quickly.

    This species can be a monster for size. Cross out the terrarium and plan on heating a spare room instead! The pitchers are average in size, but the leaves can get gargantuan proportions.
