    Hello, I just found this huge plant at a local nursery and of course had to buy it!!! Here is a pic of the whole plant:


    and here is a shot of the pitchers:


    It was even sold in a sphagnum-lined wire basket; the grower obviously knows Nepenthes. Any ideas as to what it is?

    Looks like a form of maxima in upper stage to me. Superba or curtisii or something. I'll go look for pics of those ones.

    Wow Ludwig, what kind of nurseries do you have around your house? I NEVER see Neps of that size in my town.

    Luckily, there is a guy that works at a local specialty nursery who actually built a CP bog at his nursery and he calls me whenever Nepenthes are available. He has a Sarracenia garden at this nursery about 6 feet square, and even has pygmies and all sorts of pings too.

    I need to have a nursery like that near me! Oh well, looks like I'll have to stick to internet ordering...

    By the way, how much did you pay for that Nep?

    Is that a N. Truncata in the background?
