    It's probably about a six inch pitcher on a five inch leaf. The pitcher to leaf ratio used to be a lot higher but it's diminished since the plant hit it's growth spurt. The leaves started shooting up dramatically in size but the pitchers didn't quite keep up. It might also have to do with my fert regimen. I've heard the pitchers can get smaller the more you fertilize.

    i thought i would just revive my old thread rather than starting a new one...
    when this plant was shaded outside in the greenhouse, the pitchers barely turned a rustic orange, see the previous ones...
    but back under strong lighting, in this case a couple of CFLs about 8" from the plant....you get this.
    i have a feeling the next leaf is going to pull something similar to DVG's "flight of the quantum butterfly"
