    It looks like a young maxima/maxima hybrid to me, lol. Boy that's helpful.
    The soil looks a little peaty and not very loose. Beyond the temps, ect, I don't know what would get it to explode, but if you have had it for a couple of years, and you make the right tweek, it could have some dramatic changes.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Too young, i can't really tell. Maxima would be a safe assumption though.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    I don't think its pure maxima. It looks alot like somthing in the superba hybrid group to me.

    Ries,
    Like everyone else, can't say for sure, but it reminds me very much of a clone from that big Belgian tc Nursery. While visiting their facilities here in Florida, I saw a group of plants that look like that growing along side the N. Miranda. They had no labels, but this was just about the time the Miranda came on the market called N. maxima Miranda. I believe it is a sibling of N. Miranda that was in tc for a short time, eventually to be dropped from the line. Someone else posted a photo of one of the larger plants. They have that distictive banana shape to the pitcher with a different peristome from Miranda.
    I don't know what name you may want to use...I'm not sure if its the plant I think it may be...most of them should be fairly large by now. Perhaps for the time you could label it "N. Mixta hybrid?"
