    The pitcher shown is 13 cm in height, from pitcher bottom to top of operculum.

    Very nice Jeff. Is the upper pitcher fluid fairly viscous? Just something that crossed my mind while looking at your picture.

    Actually, the pitcher fluid is not viscous at all.

    Oh neat, just something that crossed my mind for some reason so I figured I'd ask. BTW, are those nectar secretions or nodules under the lid there?

    The "bumps" are actually "stubble" in place of the "hairs" which are quite prominent on lower pitchers of this species. They are surrounded by glands which produce an exudate not unlike that secreted by N. lowii.

    Beautiful photo and pitcher! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I just wish the forum offered an inches to centimeters conversion thingy (and celsius/farenheit). I am a 'merican who doesn't know metric. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Jeff is American too, he is just being smart using the metric scale. I am training my self to do so also.

    Just for your English units here's the plant specs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Plant diameter: 14 inches in diameter, it can reach 2ft 4 inches in diameter.
    Pitcher size: 5 inches in height.
