    Greetings:

    Thought I'd test posting some photos.

    Am drastically pruning all of my plants this summer. The following pix show the stems generated by a fairly young N. maxima from MT, imported as a seedling in 2000. This plant was also lightly pruned 18 mos ago, so the resultant ca. 15 m of good-caliper stem shows just how prolific these things can be under outdoor culture.

    Hopefully, the images display properly.

    Cheerio,

    SJ

    Endparenthesis:

    Most of the pitchers remained in the tree it was growing in, altho' since these stems were up in fairly dense canopy, there are not as many uppers as would be "normal".

    Hehe, it looks like you got suttings to spare. Are you willing to give those away?

    Stop begging for cuttings anytime someone posts something like this Nathaniel (or at least do it via pm.. ;p).. StoneJaguar isn't in the US (according to his profile) so you would need import permits.

    Nice pics. Might want to resize them in the future so they are a bit easier to view without scrolling around and don't take so long to download.

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

    No harm, no foul , lol. Indeed, the CITES/MAGA permit process here is prohibitively expensive for non-commercial shipments. This clone is widely available from a number of sources and is vigorous (obviously) & most handsome.

    Thanks, Mr. Paroubek, for the compliment & heads-up on the file format. I'll make certain to re-size the next jpgs I post.

    Ciao

    i think the "local" CP market down there will soon be flooded with maxima.......i wish i could let mine just grow upa tree but i dont think even the ultrahighlands would like my winters up here, prolly wouldnt care for my summers either.
