    Who's the king (biggest) in the Kingdom of PINGUICULA?
    I want to know the biggest one I can get to start my collection. I really like the look of pings but my one attempt failed because I recieved my Lustanica (or however you spell it) in rather poor health from California Caornivores and it was mush in 2 days.

    I believe the largest is P. 'Titan'. However, I never seen
    one in person, but the pictures show them overfilling 3 inch pots.

    I guess it was just my misconception, I thought I had seen somewhere one that was MUCH larger than that, like a foot across! Thanks though.

    Flint, did you try getting your plant replaced by CC? All the nurserys are pretty good about doing this.

    Flint,

    P. gigantica is supposed to pretty large and I have heard rumor of 'dinner plate sized' P. moanensis when they are grown in partial shade. of course that is just rumor.

    Find some more info. The P. 'Titan' have been reported to grow over 6 inches. Also, the P. gigantea is quite large as well, but I don't know how big that grows up to.

    Here are some picture links for everyone to compare sizes...

    To Ram,
    No I never tried getting it replaced, I suppose it is too late by now. Dang.

    Jaie,
    I would have bought from you guys but yours was the moranesis and I was told these were really hard to grow so I looked for a temperate, my mistake I know now. Next time I will go with you guys.
