    Cool one! My nepenthes is a smaller one, but effective in bug killing. Right now mine is limping along waiting for the warm humid summer coming. Yours is amazing! I'm going to a flower show this weekend, I'd love to find a couple more bug eaters.

    nice truncata, I have an exact one, but it is still a small plant, at the moment it only
    has 6inches pitcher, hoping that one day it would put out pitchers that big. btw how old
    is that truncata?

    Though that is not surpising since truncata has one of the biggest pitchers around.
