    This guy is brand new and in TC I belive. No one has it is cultivation besides Malesiana or will have it in soon. Don't expect cheap prices or easy posession of it anytime soon.

    Oh, that's out of the question...I was just wondering how big it gets...it is called 'Giant' so...how big does it get? Bical. are already pretty big..this thing has gotta be huge.

    The name is probably either a 'showstopper' name or true. Most plants are called 'giant' simply because they are spectacular looking. Look at P. gigantea, it not bigger just has the added feature of double sticky leaves. My guess would be tho the pitchers are larger. Plant size might be bigger but not generally.

    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,

    Joe

    But guppies are so tempting...lol
    What is "TC"? If your talking about the Bical..it has fangs..they just look a little bigger and wider apart.
