    I think maxima gets that big. I think it is truncata, but I am no expert.

    oh yeah, she also said thay had speckles... I forget that I don't think Truncata has speckles... maybe some other kind. I want to see them soooo badly though, sadly I've never seen any other nep but Vent.

    I think that sound like a maxima, but could be other things too.

    Truncatas odon't display speckles, many species can reach that size, Mixta, maxima, maybe miranda, and more species.

    cool! I want to get a maxima, they look really cool. If they have it at that place I will get it. How big can truncata get? I heard it is one of the biggest neps.

    The most likely is miranda. It can easily reach 10 inches. Maxima is a bit of a stretch for a garden center. Those mass producers in Holland don't produce any species, only hybrids. One guy has gotten 2 feet tall pitchers from a truncata. It was on of EP's specially bred plants.

    Truncata can get really big aswell, but the plants with the biggest pitchers are Rajahs, the biggest plant, excluding the pitchers are bicalcaratas.
