    1.) My large form of maxima and my tentena form both appear to be very vigorous, and seem to grow in a wide variety of temps, light levels, and humidity levels.

    2.) I grow the tentena form which makes pitchers under 5in and the plant stays at about 8in diameter

    3.) Very good, seems to be a relaible grower and pitcher producer, although the ones I grow seem to preffer intermediate temps for optimum growth.

    We just got what I believe is N. x mixta (northiana x maxima), and N x mixta x maxima at Meadowview. They're vigorous growers, very vigorous! One of them has about 4-5 flowers on it, and 3 vines measuring 6 feet long at least. They kept growing after being moved, too. N. maxima seems to be like ventricosa for hybrids, fast.

    I have had a maxima for about 1 year now. It was like 3 inches when I got it. Now, the diameter is roughly 10 inches. Funny, it still looks really small. It has made 9 leaves in the last year, and maybe 4 pitchers, each one becoming progressivly more mature. I can't find the first picture when I got it, but these are the most recent.

    I don't know what kind it is, but I have been meaning to find out. I am rather fond of it...


    edit: pictures of the first and the last pitchers it has put out in 1 year:
