    I'm sorry folks, but without a supporting photo of your tallest pitcher showing a tape measure, these could simply be "fish stories" that get bigger and bigger with each telling.

    For those with pitcher envy, just take a look at

    I don't think I even own a tape measure. I'll have to borrow one from work I guess. I do have a ton of plants, but none are really that tall. I think they are too crammed and rootbound. Just guestimating, I don't think anything's over 2' at this point. The tallest plant right now is either an alata, a moorei, or an unknown. The spring pitchers of my (rubra x oreophila) x (oreophila x flava) were probably the tallest I had this year, but those pitchers have since deteriorated and the new ones aren't even close to the spring pitchers.

    I think it would be interesting to have a "contest" to see who has the largest volume in one pitcher, or the overall pitcher biomass from one plant; although that would be difficult without harming or killing the plant. I have a flava x psittcina and a mitchelliana that would probably be near the top, but I'd hate to kill them.

    so far all the tallest pitchers submitted to the contest were mostly leucophylla or leucophylla related [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] . my tallest pitcher my my leucophylla which seem to be soem variety that i got from my local garden center . it was very week since i got it about a year ago and has'nt grown much but a moth ago it started to put out pitchers and they awre quite tall , i guess it was just saving up energy . my tallest opened pitcher at the momet is 15 inches , although there is one unopened one that still has'nt stop growin that is 18 inches . garden of even , that is one huge plant , what are you feeding that thing , pet mice and fishes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    well, my sarracenia rubra ssp gulfensis had a 30 inch pitcher, and a 36 inch flower, but my dog broke the pitcher off, and i cut the flower to get seed... next year i will be sure to get pictures...

    my sarracenia leucophylla x minor 'okee giant' had around 24 pitchers this year, lets see what i get next year [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    my sarracenia alata black x flava red had 20 inch pitchers.

    my oreophylla had 18 inch pitchers

    due to thrips alot of the pitchers on my oreophylla died, but they wont toutch the phyllodia [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] can anyone give me ideas on killing these annoying insects [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] i hate them

    By the way, 'Leah Wilkerson' is a moorei cross, which makes sense since flava and leucophylla are the two biggest species.
    In the Wilkerson bog this May, 'Leah Wilkerson' measured it at 50".
    Here is a link to the page showing the measurment.

    and here is 'Leah.'
