    What does N. maxima superba look like? Do the uppers have much color at all?

    I have a plant labeled as N. maxima var. superba. It's a lot like a regular maxima, but it is big and nice. I can't vouch for the authenticity of this plant, but I sure do like it!

    Which looks identical to my maxima-dark Sulawesi. I've seen other plants labelled as maxima var. superba which have more of a browny/dun colouring. If you look at the colour of Tiveyi pitchers, you'd expect a redder or dull brown clone. But I really doubt that anyone has a plant that can be certified as the same as that used in the Tiveyi cross, unless there's a botanical gardens with a plant that has been around for more than 100 years.
