    What is the biggest pitcher ever recorded?

    I don't mean the species but an exact plant and a picture if possible. Do people actually document this stuff?

    I bet there are a few photos out there with people wearing N. rajah pitchers for hats or something. I don't know if there's a Guinness Book entry on it, though.

    I would have to agree that it's Nepenthe rajah. Supposedly, there are pitchers that can hold a couple liters of water . . .

    Unopened pitchers in the wild have often served as emergency sources of water. The fluid is near sterile until the pitcher opens . . .

    This N. merrilliana reportedly held almost three liters of water.
