Keeping nepenthes on the shorter side?

Will keeping n.ventrada 2 feet high harm it at all? Will it still flower without having a decent sized vine?

RE: Keeping nepenthes on the shorter side?

No, it won't harm the plant to continually trim the vines. It'll sprout off the sides of the vines, grow basal growths, and look bushy. However, I doubt you'd ever get flowers if you keep cutting down the vines, but ventrata is a reluctant flowerer anyway, tends not to flower even in perfect light on feet long vines.
