    Size does matter

    When measuring the size of a cephalotus pitcher do you include the lid in the length? I have seen some claims of 3" hummer pitchers. If that doesn't include the lid that is impressive if not than it isn't that much bigger than a typical cultivar. I am debating whether to get a n. jamban or a ceph HG for myself for my birthday next month. Thanks.

    Keep it on the dry side or it will rot.

    If you have the HL conditions I personally would go for the Nep, mainly cos I have a Ceph (typical) but I really want a jamban someday. Neps are great due to the ease of which they can be propagated from cuttings after just a couple years. I've heard this newer species (since I was last in the hobby) is quite fast to vine and I like it when Neps are vines.

    Edited:

    Yes when you measure the size of the ceph pitcher you include the lid also since its part of the the pitcher and plant. but its all comes to personal. I for myself don;t really care about the lid. since the size of the lid don't impress me, but the size of the pitcher does.

    i think for sure the hummers are different in size , just for reference,
    here is a hummers giant . its 2 inches, 1 inch if pitcher, 1 inch if lid, but look at that lid.
    I just love these plants. both small and large.
    .
    .
    .
    And here's a three and a half year old reg ceph beside the same hummer,
    the two plants are about the same age , though ive only had the hummer for 3 to 4 months,
    and have had the reg. about two years.
    .

    You could get a nice sized N. jamban: Neps for trade/sale
    I already got the darker variant,
    and the hamatas are gone. I think only the macro is left.
