    Before there was a Nepenthes hamata or a N. jacquelinae, THIS was the big dog on the epiphyte block:

    Very light-colored version of a very beautiful plant.

    Pitcher opened about 10 days ago, exactly 20 cm tall.

    This plant offset when quite small, so it has two good rosettes. The tendril pictured is 49 cm long. Plant is generating two new pitchers at this point.

    Question for the various oracles on the forum: how big do N. burbidgeae lowers actually get in cultivation? The lit says 20 cm for wild plants, but Geoff Mansell posted a pic on his website a while back that suggested something more like 35 cm was possible.

    Enjoy,

    SJ,

    How envious I am. I could set something like that outside here, and it would not last a day, lol.
    I don't know what your countries customs are like, but I bet you don't get to trade with other enthusiasts in your neck of the woods, lol.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Very nice! One of my favorites as well.

    My resources say around 25cm tall and 10cm wide. That picture from Exotica showed Geoff putting a fist into the pitcher. I would imagine a full sized lower pitcher should be big enough.

    Also keep in mind that size is based on culture. It is quite feasible that under controlled optimum growing conditions you might produce plants/pitchers which exceed the sizes listed in the species descriptions.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
