I totally just skimmed this thread earlier and realized that I didn't actually read the text of your photos. Good luck with ebaying that plant! I hope it fetches you a nice sum. I have always thought that the description of glabrata as a perfect terrarium plant is far from true. I never grew one too big for my terrarium, but I have seen a number of pictures of plants that are just much much larger than a terrarium could handle. To be fair though, in a large terrarium your specimen could be "trained" to crawl or cram up against the glass and it would maybe still produce pitchers. But we all know that that is not ideal...
Thanks a lot guys. I am quite fond of my Ventrata, just because I think it's going to be my first plant to start making uppers, although when I first got it I cut the stem during vining stage due to massive lack of experience and knowledge of what was going on! I've tried to postpone selling the Glabrata as much as possible and even toyed with the idea of making a tall *** terrarium just for it but decided against it for obvious reasons. It seems to be doing well on ebay so far though! @Mass, my Ceph has grown on me massively since I got it, though due to its banishment to the back of the terrarium (as its 'pot' is so tall) it only really grows on one side and the one I haven't shown you looks like crap
Thanks guys! corky- I got it on ebay for the grand total of £15 (very lucky!), it was Simon Lumb who was selling it, not sure if you know of him but he usually has Neps to sell for people in the UK. I agree with black knight, mine recently flowered and is finally starting to make uppers.
thats a bargain tom,i have seen some of simons posts on cpuk he has some amazing stuff,if i remember correct i think he is threeskins on proboard ,when your black knight makes an upper i would like to see a pic
thanks a lot guys! Spec x mira quickly became one of my favourites in my collection. That lowii x boschiana upper is gorgeous! I may have to force myself to hold onto it until it vines and then chop and swap
