    LOL! Hi matopsis - question, is that one of those pre-fabricated pond liner containers your plant is in? I'm looking around for some containers to do a little bog garden next year. That looks like a nice size :-) BTW, great plants!!

    the tub that is in the photo was purchased at a farm supply store. I think people use it as a trough for feeding their horses. It's pretty heavy duty - my tupperware style tubs like the one on the left became brittle after a few seasons in the sun and started to crack.

    Surely someone has some giants out there! anyone have a S.minor v. okefen. ? I've always wanted to know how big those get since my regular S.minor only get about 12 to 14 inches tall.

    My S. alata got even bigger, opened and turned out to be a lot bigger than I expected. The lid is atleast twice or possibly three times the size of the lids of the previous pitchers.

    S. moorei x ? clone is 25"+ right now and I'm expecting taller. If so I'll post photos somewhere.
