Thanks for the complements. The northiana is only about five inches wide. I've only had the truncata x ventricosa only about a year and it has almost tripled in size. The pitchers were only two inches tall when I got it. It has almost outgrown my tank.

This hybrid really doesn't require a tank, unless you live in a dessert. Mine pitchers nicely in humidity that sometimes drops into the 30's....though I do try to keep it over 40%. It seems to have inherrited the toughness of both parrents.
