    One large Nepenthes truncata!

    I was at the Golden Gate conservatory of flowers to see the carnivorous plant display and I saw this humongous N. truncata flowering (male I think, if you zoom in on the upper left hand corner you see a flower).
    The leaves are I think 2 feet across.

    The leaves can be used to make truncatamales.

    Giganto plant
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    That particular N. truncata is potted in a hanging wooden orchid basket somewhere under that pile of leaves -- the bottom was dangerously close to falling out the last time I was there this January. Did you find their nicely-sized N. robcantleyi specimen, too?
