    Well theres been a lot of debate over that. Whether it is N.truncata,merilliana,or rajah. For actual size and not capacity I`d say truncata

    Why not get all three of them?

    I own two of them. They are Rajah and Truncata.

    I think that some of that data may be a bit out of date. There has always been a distinction between size as between height and volume. Rajah was often considered to have the largest volume. However, with the discovery of highland truncata whose pitchers are larger than the lowland variant, it might be larger in volume than rajah.

    I have to disagree, whilst you may want rajh to be the biggest. N. merilliana is infact the biggest as far as pitcher size goes. Some pitcher can hold up to 3.5 liters of fluid. rjah is "only" like to 2 liters.
