    Wow, I take it that that is an Upper pitcher, but don't they have coiling tendrils? Not truncata I suppose... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] Or do they?

    Truncata does not make coiling tendrils. They just make big pitchers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Uppers are generally characterized by a triangular lid and widely flaring peristome. Lowers are characterized by a small capped lid and striped short peristome.

    with the n truncata, i still have mine i got in the pot from pft a couple months ago, its growing very nicely

    i wanted to ask if they are fast growers, cus mines kidna slow, mayeb its the pot size, im going to repot it today, its about 9" acorss and very deep

    this should last it for a long while right?

    That size should do fine for a while. Kinda hard to tell, considering how fast the plant increases in size. I've heard of a highland form of truncata( should be entering cultivation soon) that can get to 6 feet in diameter!!!!! The pitchers get even larger than the lowland as well. I'll probably get one in the future.

    The highland form of Truncata is absoulutly enormous! 8ft in diamter has been recorded, pitchers are titanus, and the leaves are just as big. It has entered cultivation too.

    That pot size sounds big enough. Truncata can go rootbound for a while so don't worry.

    8 feet! Wow. That's greater than my height, and I'm 6'8". I wouldn't be surprised if this thing could eat a human child [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] .
