I don't grow this plant, but I've seen some examples of it and they seem to hate hot temperatures. I don't know how many clones of this variety are cultivation, but I haven't seen much variation and I've only seen smaller examples that were growing well.
They got control of the heart of a nation Their social bribes seem so graciously As time goes by 'Cause time as you can see will slowly die for you and me
Look at the lost souls they seem so black Look at the lost souls Souls of Black
Nearly 2 years ago, Stewart had some maxima Wavy leaf seeds amongst the large seed offer he made. I have 2 seedlings gorwing and there will be loads more amongst 'god knows' how many collections.
I also have germinated so far (more expected), just over 20 each of two different 'Giant wavy leafed' maxima's. These came from Ebay and many more were offered. So like Walter, I guess give it a few years and hundreds if not thousands of clones will be around.
Hi guys....I too got some seeds from walterg...Still waiting for germination and it is in lowland conditions...It was labeled N maxima tentena but i cant seem to find much info on it
That sounds like the Giant wavy leaf (from near Tentena area-Central Sulawesi), there were 2 clones on offer both described "Not far from the habitat can be found Glabrata and Tentaculata.This form of Maxima are huge in size and have a wide colorful peristome like hurreliana and candy stripe veitchii."
The pictures showed clone 1 as having a greener body colour, with clone 2 having more/bigger reddish splotches.
It's hard to be sure from the pic's, but I would guess they show pitchers about 25-30cm tall. Both very nice - I'm looking forward to seeing them develope.
