    My aim in growing Hummer's giants was to surpass Bigbella's 8.25cm pitcher; the largest recorded length of a Hummer's giant pitcher that I could find (with an accompanying picture of the plant). Not all Hummer's giants are real Hummer's giants, and I too have a pseudo HG plant in my collection. This was a small cutting from Charles Brewer which I received around New Year's Eve of 2013. In 11 months, the twig has become this. Others have noted on the forum regarding distinguishing features of this monotypic genus, and the ruckus made over small discerning features. I can always pick out the HG plants in my collection (not the pullings of course).


    Well, guess I am aiming for 10cm (4 inches) now

    Yes, quite impressive. Remind us of the conditions in which that big guy is growing?
