    Hey guys!

    I bought this Nepenthes a few years ago. It's a very slow grower, and they said it was a Nepenthes maxima. But last week a friend of mine said it wasn´t. So...is this a N. maxima or not?

    Looks like an N.maxima or hybrid to me.

    Yikes.......thats a really tough call there! I'd say a VERY young N. maxima or N. maxima hybrid, which I am leaning towards because the leafes are just not saying pure maxima to me for some reason, maybe its N. maxima x N. sanguniea, mind PMing me where the plant came from? Perhaps we can try to track its ID down from there.

    Looks kinda not right to me either but I think it needs to grow up more to see what it does when it's more mature.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Could it be an hybrid of maxima and ventricosa?
    If the dragon is bigger than his treasure, it's not worth the effort.

    it doesn't look like it has any maxima in it to me. Looks like alata x sanguinea [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
