How big does nepenthes ampullaria cultivars get

by Carnivorous Alex » Sun Apr 14, 2019 6:36 pm

I was wondering if they can outgrow a 20 gallon fish tank converted into a tropical terrarium


Also how can you replicate hot days we keep the house at 72 day and night

I don’t know my Sanguinea is pretty small lol but it might take long for it to reach that big.

I bought it from Sarracenia Northwest it’s pretty cheap.

To my knowledge ampullarias can get large but their vines can be cut back to keep the plant compact. To keep a terrarium warm I would use a heat pad of some sort placed below the tank to raise the temperature.

N. ampullaria can grow 30+ feet tall. Here is mine in a tall 6 sided tank. It’s the plant on the bottom left. It will outgrow this tank in a couple years probably.

Nepenthes are vines, they will pretty much grow forever until you cut them down.
