    It took a little while for mine to get the big pitchers, maybe a few years, but the wait was worth it.

    Mine has only produced lower pitchers so far, even on the mother plant, which is about 3 feet tall with 2-foot leaves. I've seen pictures of uppers on a similar plant, but I can't remember where. As I remember, they were typically corucopia-shaped and had a rather meaty-looking peristome.

    Mass: I tend to think that N. x miranda is a glorified N. x mixta. I have a mixta, and it is almost identical to my miranda, except that the pitchers are just a little smaller.

    Thanks Guy did the N. rafflesiana "giant" uppers have any color or mostly cream/off white?

    I love the huge lowland plants, N. Miranda was a great one in that regard, by the time I sold my old Nep collection it was many feet in diameter and producing hefty 14" pitchers.

    wow nepguy, a very good effort providing the lowland temp in your part of the world. The raff pitcher must be around 24cm?

    swords, I think the uppers I saw still had plenty of color, but the peristomes were mostly creamy with some striping.

    Thank you, rbjong. The pitcher is about 25.5 centimeters (10") tall.

    Oh man, I can't wait until my raff gets THAT large. Its most recent pitcher is about 5.5~6 inches tall including the lid. Supposed to be a giant variety, I'm excited.

    I'm sorry to hear that, Thez. How bad is it? Did you check to see what's going on at the roots? Sometimes simply repotting can work wonders.
