    Yeah, I think regia is pretty big. Drosera binata is also pretty large. It is about two feet at its largest.

    If it's height you're after, some of the tuberous climbing Sundews (for example Drosera macrantha [various subspecies]) from Western Australia get very tall. Here's an interesting article I found on Drosera erythrogyna:

    World's Largest Sundew ?

    I'm mainly interested in Drosera, Dionaea & Aldrovanda, Hardy Orchids (esp Dactylorhiza), Arums and Ericas (Heaths/Heathers - European + S.African)

    maybe you should go for the cubic area the plant takes up when fully grown instead of mesering the hight or with. some drosera are pretty high but skinny... Zongyi (though measuring it in cupic area can be hard, if not impossible)

    Nathaniel,

    Over all size or trap size? This could make a big difference. I would definately agree that regia is one of the larger ones. Drosera gigantea can basically grow into a three foot "tree".

    Drosera dichotoma giant from what i've heard also can grow rather large.
    Lithops care info: If you take care of it, it will die.

    D. dicatoma 'giant' is quite a large plant. I have it and it right now is the Paul Bunyan of my Drosera collection. D. binata is just a very wide spreading floppy looking plant.

    He must have mentioned D.Binata as all of the staghorn sundews
    D.Binata Dichotoma"giant"

    But I think they should be thought of as different species...

    My Dichotoma is definately my largest plant...unless you want to measure my N.Ventrata but I'm too lazy...
