    Drew,

    I "think" there is a plant floating around that is labled as Drew wants...didn't Bruce Bednar use the original in several hybrids he made.

    Cheers,


    Joe

    Check out Capslock's post "Random pics" from the Nepenthes forum. It's the first pic. Maybe he has some ideas on where to hunt it down?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Hey,
    The one I have I picked up at a local store who got it from a local grower. They only got the one plant, which was a cutting from the grower's plant, so I'm not sure where there is widespread availability. If you find it, buy it! It's really a spectacular plant that seems to grow quickly and vigorously.

    DeRoose, the company that produced all of the Mixta Superbas on the market, originally called their plant Maxima Superba. They're famous for changing names on their plants all the time to encourage new sales. Unfortunately, this means that a lot of the Maxima Superbas out there are not the actual plant, but most likely Mixta Superba. My guess is that Kim or Bruce Bednar are the reliable sources for the plant. Oz
