    For me, it is N. ventrata. I also have a couple other large vines, both of which include spathulata in the hybrid. They are very fast growing for me.

    My most aggressive grower is N. maxima dark x talangensis.

    I'm not sure you'll find a plant that's both fast and has huge pitchers. The large-pitchered species are often also the slowest. Truncata can appear to be fast if you have many growing points.

    As carbonetc states, the larger the pitcher, the greater the likelihood that the plant is very slow growing.

    Some of the more 'weedy' Sumatran species can grow relatively rapidly. N. inermis has grown pretty quickly for me, but the most spectacular species are going to be the slowest growing.

    Thanks for the responses.. Very interesting to hear what plants grow large for others.

    Considering the question, I'm just going to say N. Miranda, since it's readily available.

    N. truncata x ovata is quick to vine and hits sizable pitchers every time
