    The gigantea in P.gigantea signifies the size of the leaves. I have personally seen giganteas 9-12in. I have heard that they can grow even bigger.

    Wow, Regardless if I don't really like the red..that's still a stunning plant. I want my Bical to become as golden yellow as a plant I saw online...But I think mine may be red...

    Hey Ozzy!

    What about feeding a N. bical a slug?

    I second that warning about feeding guppies to your Nepenthes.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Maybe the guppies can live inside the plant for periods of time and eat whatever else goes in there... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
    I share your sorrow and your grief…Numberless times I convey my anguish.....

    This is my story.

    Well, they will not have this plant soon, as I had asked about it and the TC plants are looking like hybrids, as they have no fangs.
    P. gigantea can get big for some, BTW. There is a guy in California that grows them the size of dinner plates.

    Regards,

    I think you are talking about good old phil faulisi. his largest gigantea was i think, 15 inches. I think he has a giant 24 inch one though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I have seen pictures of this giant, its beautiful. (i cant recall if it was 15 inches or 24 inches, i think it was 24 inches)
