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.

Love your carnivorous plants
pictures .Love your ampullaris
I have trouble getting pitchers
on mine and I have a bicalarata
in the house on a heat pad and
I leave in the sub tropics.
In our mild winter they don't bear it. I don't dare get mine below
24 degrees celsius
