    The grow quite quickly once they get to the size of your plant. I would expect that you will get quite large pitchers this year, and they should be approaching full-size next year.

    I also forgot to mention that it looks like my plant is going to flower , i thought that it was just going out of dormancy but theres a small scape about 3 inches tall thats has small bracts the ned looks like a small bud but I'm not sure yet , i mistaken the bracts for pitchers . So i guess it is alreayd amture , how tall should a mature plant be .
