    Hi Guys,
    Not that big, only 1 1/2", but some clones get upto 3" accross depending on the clone. The one below has an Autumn pitcher you can put a ping pong ball down it. You can see to the left a typical slender spring pitcher to the left of the big Autumn pitcher:

    S leucophylla, Giant purple & white, Altha, Northern Florida, L19

    Hi Alexis,
    Have a look closely, assuming your leuco is getting plenty of light, all mine are sending them up right now. Some just starting, others already there and open. When they start, they really send them up quick!

    How old is this pitcher mike? I have some that are a year and a half to 2 years old, and they are no where near that size. Very nice! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks Mike. So far it has grown a few spring pitchers and then grew some phyllodia in July and August. Then at the end of August it sent up another spring pitcher. There are two tiny shoots at the moment but they don't seem to look like they will do much.
