    I'll be the first to go [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . As far as leaf size goes, it would be my N. rafflesiana Sarawk giant. It's about 3 feet in diameter, and has 8" + pitchers. As far as pitcher size goes, it would be my N. truncata. It is 13-14" in diameter, and has 11" + pitchers.

    The largest at the moment is N. bicalcarata which is reaching 3 feet in diameter with softball sized pitchers (about 5 to 6" high) and the N. Judith Finn is second with 12" in size with 5" pitchers
