    N.Truncata will eventually get huge! Mine is a 2 foot dia. plant with 10 inch pitchers.

    It will take about 2-4 years to get fairly large. BUT once a Truncata approaches 4-5inches in diameter it gets much larger progressivley with every next leave it puts out.

    N. truncata grows relatively quick once it is established to a plant that is 12-18 inches across. It can grow very large. I have had one pitcher on one plant with pitchers to 19 inches in height and the plant is about 4 feet across. I have several large ones. Make sure you put it in a large enough pot before it gets too big. A 3-5 gallon pot is a good size. Initially, N. truncata grows a bit slow when the plant is only 4 inches across, but it will surprise you once it starts growing. Aloha from Hawaii.

    What about Nep. Raf? Mine is growing insanely fast, and the pitchers are relativly large for its size.
