    So can you tell me from that book's information about the Maxima I have, I think the person I bought the plant from made a mistake on the name Boroneo well mybe it is a Boroneo I asked him and he said to grow it Highland What does it say in the book about the Maxima, Such as conditions (Highland or Lowland) and water etc. Thanx

    Perhaps it is the plant released by Malesiana from Borone. According to their website it is a lowland form.

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

    I assumed that was what was being discussed, and that "Borone" had been spelled wrong.
    Mansell has a plant of his site that he claims is a maxima from Sabah(var Pieriensis, named after a former Govenor), but I asked Charles about that and he thought that it was bogusly named.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Since Joe mentioned pierenensis variety of N. maxima...isn't it bizzare how the color of the pitcher fluid turns orange after prey capture...er wait that the Sulawesi form nevermind. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] As for your N. maxima "Boroneo" Phil I think it is also the Borone lowland form of N. maxima. I say pop it in lowland conditions and see how it does.

    Tony on your web-site it says N. Maxima Boroneo and it says lowland under nepenthes (N. maxima (Borone, Sulawesi)) Is this right? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    So Tony did you see that on your Site. It said N. Maxima Boroneo, Sarawak. Lowland. Is it true? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    A former Sabah Parks Official by the name of Sonny Periera once showed me what he thought was N. maxima growing near the Mamut Copper mine close to Kinabalu Park. We didn't spend long there since it was growing in gloomy dense rattan with more leeches per square inch than I have ever seen. I took some terrible photos and then beat a hasty retreat. Later that year I saw N. macrovulgaris for the first time on the other side of Sabah and remember thinking how much it resembled the plant Sonny had found. Sonny however, remained convinced he had found N. maxima and for years used to take people to see it and take cuttings. I've just got an inkling that the N. maxima 'var. periensis' might be the same plant. Sort of green is it, with a wide mouth?

    We are growing a form of N. maxima from Anggi Lakes, Sulaweisi. It's rather slower than expected but I just assumed it would do best under highland conditions. However, having read this thread we'll take some down to the lowlands and see what happens.

    It was cold here last night!
