    That is one spectacularly well-grown plant.

    Yes I did! I think it has 11" ++ pitchers that Nephenthes robcantleyi is an expressive size plant.

    Seeing the photograph above, the containers that they are growing their Nepenthes in seem rather small.

    If you're watering daily or the plants are receiving frequent mist, the container size ceases to matter as long as it provides sufficient drainage and doesn't dry out.

    I concur. I have a truncata hybrid in a four inch pot and the leafspan now exceeds 18", and yet the plant isn't troubled at all by the small pot.
