Depends how you measure them. For sheer volume of trapping area you have
to go some to beat the large D. dichotoma and D. binata forms. In terms
of height the prize probably goes to some of the upright climbing
tuberous Drosera. I have had species such as D. macrantha or D. pallida
get to at least 1.5 Meters height, perhaps more.
