    ..........

    Truly impressive - larger than any I ever grew.

    That 'mid-rib' is also very significant & makes me wonder if the pitcher is indeed still growing?

    Before I had any cephalotus plants, I would drool over yours Ron . Using your informative posts here on TF as a foundation - growing and pollination (look for the star kiddies!)- a little empirical testing on growth parameters, and being a good girl and not torturing the planties for a while, has allowed them to flourish.

    FYI - this is natural growth for this plant. No, I did not feed small furry animals, sacrifice young virgins, or give growth hormones to this ceph to induce giant pitchers. Simply, it has just been liberated from the Jen monster, and this is what ceph freedom looks like. However, I do use something magical called "neglect". If I manage to water and feed them with my busy schedule, it is already a small miracle. Cephs are low maintenance plants for me, so unlike my heli attention wh0res.

    The pitcher is not inflating anymore, and if any, it is negligible. The opening of the lid is the only attribute that is still in flux, but I believe that too, is near its end. As it sits, the pitcher length from lid to bottom is 10.1 cm or 4 inches.


    However, two babies are emerging and another waiting game commences.



    The wide midrib is characteristic of the Hummer's giant as you mentioned in an older thread. Here are two pitchers on the same plant (representative of normal pitcher size for this plant), and as you can see they have long ceased inflating, despite the wide midrib. This one does whatever it desires, according to its own whims, to spite me - of course.

    Two new forming pitchers on my HG1. My money is on the right side one.




    And here is HG1, who put out a very long leaf to escape the bush, 7''+
