Ddude, I got it from Mike when it was still a big plant. He was in the process of the first stage of moving and basically "gave" that plant to me. I bought it for $20 even. And it was not much smaller than it is not. Maybe about 2 feet across. It didn't have any pitchers and was growing in a big clump of moss on the ground. This was the plant that was lost at Ohio's airport after we transitioned planes. Lucky they found it before it was going to Another state!

Josh, thanks for the suggestion. I'm not going to do any repotting until it gets warmer out. It's -20F right now presently. And prolly going to only get up to -10 if we're lcuky for a high. I don't really have any huge huge containers, but I have very deep ones. Roots are just at the holes at the moment. So it's not too rootbound yet. Another 3 or 4 months and I think i'm going to have to go to Potlocker and look for a size 15 pot! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] So yours "melted" huh? What did you do after repotting it?? Looking forward to your next reply!
Goldtrap, well that's another reason I posted this. It gives people a proportional view of how large this plant gets. Plan ahead if you plan on getting one. I bought a little N. bical orangey colored one, not deep red liek mine from Tony and it was only about 6 inches across, now it's about 12 or 14 inches across from 8/3/02 up till now. It's in a 1 gallon nusury grade pot in a mix of sand and peat and I think some perlite also. But it just goes to show you both plants get very larger regardless of the soil mix. The big one is in a totally different soil mix and o is the littler one but yet both grow just fine.
