    I am having my first pitcher from it. It is fast growing didnt even have a shipping shock. But the old pitchers on it have red spots on it. I will tell you how it looks without soil on the pitche. It will take about a week and half for the pitcher to forum and open.

Maxima boroneo lowland. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Sorry I was out of town.

    According to Malesiana the lowland form I have is from Borone, Sulawesi. I don't have much other information than that. I have been growing more intermediate because it is difficult to provide true lowland conditions in the great white North. They seem to do fine though which is not overly surprising since N. maxima in my experience is fairly tolerant to varied conditions.

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

    It should do fine in intermediate conditions. Where I live here in Hawaii, all my N. maxima forms do great and everything we grow, we grow outside. Temps in the winter are about 75-82 F daytime and 58-65F nightime. Summer temps are usually 65-70F at night and daytime highs are 80-85 during the summer. Lowlands also seem to do just fine with some lowlands such as bical, raff, mirabilis, amps and thorellii going a bit slower than if grown at hotter daytime temps. However, they all seem to do fine and we have quite good luck with highlands also. We are at only about 50 ft. above sea level. Some of the ultra highlands we grow up the hill where it is cooler, but we can grow spectabilis, burbidgea, stenophylla, ramispina, sibuyanensis and many others at this elevation and temps. The amazing thing is how well Sarracenia have done here for us.

    i have one N.maxima lowland form that i am growing. when i recieved it, it was in shock something fears. i'm growing it outside here in my conditions. it took about a good year for it to finally come totally out of shock and has formed 2 pitches about 3 weeks ago.
    also i have a N.maxima csfu mature plant that is growing in the same condition and growing pitchers left and right of lower and upper pitchers
