My two largest cephalotus have pitchers that measure about 3 1/2" from the
base to the rim, and about another inch if you include the lid (non-reflexed,
in its normal position)...it wasnt sold as the "giant" form, and I'm not
convinced yet that there really is a giant form of cephalotus...they seem to
grow larger every year, and once they reach a size of about 3" in diameter
they grow larger at a much faster pace than when they were smaller due to
multiple growth crowns kicking in.
