    Mine is getting quite huge...and I need to do something soon. I just hate disturbing the location as I'm afraid the change will shock into doing something silly.

    Nice plant there!

    This are several stages of my Truncata. As you can check every nw leaf is bigger of its previous,traps also...of course...in my case. The 3 last traps were 12,5 cm after 15,5 cm and the last one 16,5 cm.
    Let me know what you think about it.

    Caio Mr. Aga!

    Mui bueno !

    Your truncata does have an oddly narrow neck & mouth, though. Looks kinda cool, like a glass soda bottle.

    Yes, those are just lower pitchers, very unattractive compared to the glorious uppers!

    Dustin, what do you mean by glorious uppers? The difference between lower and upper pitchers of N. truncata is not that big - or do you mean the expanded peristome which gradually develops when adult pitchers develop?

    This is the same clone grown by GŁnter Seiter being 'slightly' bigger (33cm):
