    N. maxima 'Lake Poso'

    "Climate: highland

    This is a lovely miniature form of the species and although from a
    wild population, it was legitimately described as a cultivar by Dave
    Evans in the ICPS Carnivorous Plant Newsletter, published in
    March 2009."

    Grown in Singapore

    Beautiful plant. I've passed up the chance of getting one on several occasions. I might have to pick one up the next time I have an opportunity. It would be nice to have a maxima that doesn't reach monstrous proportions.

    Nice photos. The first one is amazing.
    Looks like your plants are swimming in a sea of moss. A feat in itself.

    Please share your pics!

    I have the plant growing in lowland conditions in a breadbox (away from direct sunlight to prevent overheating), together with N. adnata which I killed at least 5 plants before finding that the method works. I have yet to see how it does when the hot weather returns again...but the setup has been exposed to rather low light levels for the past few months and the pitchers have got great colours. My lowest temperature is about 75F and highest is 85F at the moment. It will go up to the range of 78F-95F in a few weeks' time, with some nights hitting 84F.

    The plant arrived with pitchers like the following...


    But during the heat wave last August...

    Very nice Cindy! It didn't much like the heatwave though did it? It's clearly made a full recovery since then though.

    I do find it amazing the range of species you can grow in Singapore without resorting to a lot of expensive equipment.
