|How big is that pitcher?[/QUOTE]|
the pitcher is about 6-7cm big. The diameter of this N. macrophylla is about 13cm.
Hmm, it's lifesize as the pic on my screen shows a 7 cm pitcher (I measured it) boy I can't wait! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
How long have you been growing it? I got mine from Wistuba last December at about 2-2.5 cm in diameter now it's about 6-7 cm in diameter with 2.5 cm pitchers (got it's first pinhead sized crickets tonight).
you might try clicking on the pictures, they're links to bigger versions of these pics. I have another one from a different angle which shows the peristome better, but the background isn't looking as good:
The pitcher is still colouring up, the final red colour isn't reached yet. I got this plant about two years ago. At that time it was already much older than your plant is right now (pic from 12/01: http://home.arcor.de/j.danz/N_macrophylla.jpg). I'm growing my plants under higher light levels than you do, so comparing sizes of plants is somewhat difficult.
