Well soon it is will be time to repot my towering Ampullaria.
This N. Ampullaria has really grown.
One stalk is now 14 inches high and the other 7 with both producing nice pitchers
The pitchers of this species grow a vinelike extension that drapes away from the main plant off of a leaf. A little bud grows on the tip. As it grows a little lip starts to form as well (on the right top).
I also measured the biggest pitcher which is 1.5 inches and other are 1 inch or less.
There are also little a crowd of tiny pitchers around the main stem in different places . I can call these ground or lower stem pitchers. Soon it is will be time to repot my towering plant
I have already started to repot the cp plants as one should do at least yearly to cleans the soil and renew it.
I repotted the N. Ampullaria last year and that seemed to spur tremendous growth. I hope it won't alter its fantastic growth.
