The pitcher is now fully mature, I think. Is it not pretty?
And now, some numbers:
Height of pitcher to top of peristome: 24cm
Height of pitcher to tip of lid: 27cm
Widest part of pitcher including peristome: 7cm
Widest part excluding peristome: 5.5cm
And now the plant is back in its permanent home. The pitcher is so heavy that it needs its own stand, or the plant will topple over. And now another two are forming. Uh oh.

Geoff Mansell of Exotica Plants has positively identified the plant as Nepenthes truncata x (spectabilis x northiana).
Geoff and Andrea Mansell specialise in the creation of beautiful, large and vigorous Nepenthes hybrids. This spectacular clone most probably originated from the EP nursery.
