    My N. x Medusa has the proportionately longest tendrils. One tendril is longer than the diameter of the plant [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] ! Can't wait to see how large that pitcher will be [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] .

    macfarlanei and villosa both have very, very long tendrils. Rowanae tendrils can get very long also.

    N longifolia is named for the fact that it has long tendrils.
    I have seen them over 1m long in larger plants.

    I think some rafflesiana giants can beat them all [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . Raffs are the best!
