No joke.

This Cephalotus plant had pitchers about the size of
the small tea cup you'd find in a Chinese Restaurant.
My official guess is the maw was 2" across, roughly
from the fingertip to the
second joint on a man's pointer finger. And the
pitcher was at least that tall. The color was
wonderful, a bright rich green with purplish black
veining, and the same purple-black color for the
smooth maw lips and teeth.

Until last weekend, the biggest Cephalotus I've ever
seen had traps 1/2" across.
