    Fusca is an under rated plant imo.

    Nice

    Everyone who says that N. fusca is just a poor man's N. maxima can go whack themselves upside the head. It really is a lovely plant, it has a certain daintiness and elegance that the bold and gaudy N. maxima seems to lack. I'm starting to see thinner and strappier lids on my fusca's lowers, perhaps it's a precursor to the odd lids on the uppers...

    What locality is that from, Paul?

    A poor man's maxima?! Hardly!
    You'd have to ask Jeremiah where it came from. I never bothered to ask for provenance info, sorry.

    Yeah, I don't understand why people don't like upper pitchers compared to lower pitchers. And I thought it was the other way around with fusca and maxima.

    RE Uppers VS Lowers: it depends on the species. Some species have amazing upper pitchers (think N. lowii, for example) and others have much more interesting lower pitchers (like N. singalana) so you can't generalize. :-)
