    Also Vent x ephippiata, a very rapid grower, the internodes are tight, but it makes up for it with leaf span and speed, 2 metres in 2 years and quite a few 6/7 inch pitchers

    Also maxima x spectabilis, long gaps between the internodes and produces about 1.5metres of stem annually

    In my conditions (windowsill in winter - low humidity and room temps, balcony in summer - high humidity and high temps) and out of about 31 species, Maxima (tentena) is the quickest for me. Miranda and Ventrata come close but Maxima is much faster.

    Maxima and Spectabilis hybrids usually produce large pitchers and grow fast, but honestly you'll want to keep most small-medium starters for at least a year before they produce any noteworthy pitchers. I would buy the biggest plants you can afford if you're trying to get there faster.
