    well mine won't go in any books for size, they are all seedlings and juveniles, many to young to even identify.

    My biggest plants are either pure purpera, or leucophylla x purpera.

    Very cool. I have a Formosa that is a foot tall and has many many pitchers. It looks like this creepy hand reaching out of the dirt for any unsuspecting bugs. =o)
    My lleucophila (sp) is a little taller. They are not very old plants, but getting better all the time, thats what makes these plants so cool.

    At the moment all mine are coming out of dormancy, developing flowers but last years S. flava pitchers were pretty impressive, a little over 25 inches, might get some larger ones this year! My psittacina has pitchers abot 7 inches long and looks great.

    I wonder if warm nights (85deg) cause the hybrids to grow taller. Mine are about 20 inches on average when they are only 3 weeks out of dormancy. The pitchers are still closed.
