Description
 
Nepenthes maxima is a highly variable species with a wide distribution across South-East Asia. This particular form of Nepenthes maxima is found on Gunung Lumut in Indonesia. According to the supplier of this plant (Borneo Exotics) it is a female, and they also claim it to be the finest specimen of Nepenthes maxima that they have seen. It produces long, elegant pitchers with bright red spots, stripes and mottling. Its peristomes are narrow, elongated, and begin lightly colored and striped with red bands, but later transform to a deep, uniform, crimson red.

This form of N. maxima has such an attractive form that it was mistakenly sold as Nepenthes eymae for many years. It was only recently revealed to be N. maxima when it did not produce the characteristic upper pitchers of N. eymae.

This plant will be shipped bare-root with a 3" plastic pot and enough top-quality New Zealand long-fiber sphagnum moss to fill it. Planting and growing instructions will also be included.
Product Details
Grow in partial sun at room temperature and keep damp year round. These plants don't appreciate water-logged conditions, so keep the pot well drained and don't leave it in a tray of water. They appreciate high humidity, so regular misting is recommended.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from San Diego, California  
Plant arrived quickly in great condition.  Has nice reddish leaves, two nicely colored open 4" pitchers, and one more opening up.  Can't wait till this gets larger!

Nepenthes Maxima October 8, 2014
Reviewer: gary gonzalez from vallejo, CA United States  
Great plant. I thought it was a great idea to pack it with the peat moss to cushion the plant. I would have liked a bigger pot for it though. Thanks for the prompt delivery.
