Product information "Nepenthes maxima (G. Lumut,Sulawesi)"
Nepenthes maxima is certainly one of the most variable species in the whole genus, both morphologically and in coloration, so that it is often difficult to believe that all these plants are conspecific. However, the appendages on the lid are an unmistakable feature to determine at least already the closer relationship group.
It belongs to the easier (='medium') upland species. N. maxima grows easily under a wide range of conditions and is very tolerant of higher temperatures, in nature it is found at 600-2500 m.a.s.l..
"Maxima" means "the largest" and refers to the considerably large pitchers in adult N. maxima, however, it does not produce the largest pitchers in the genus as of today.
In 2016, the group N. minima was resolved from N. maxima. The very closely related species remains much smaller.
Very robust and adaptable species, whose variability alone is fascinating.
