What's mini about it? Nice attractive pitchers. There will be someone in Japan looking for a variegated maxima. Interesting color and form. Any info on the wild collected seed? It sort of has a hybrid appearance. Or maybe it's just me. Very vigorous for a "diminutive" species.

The "mini maxima" tag has been put on several different expressions of maxima. It appears there are various populations of dwarf maxima, but it isn't known how they relate to each other. They may form a subspecies or a natural variety; or the individual populations might have developed the dwarf expressions each on their own; or even some combination to the two scenarios...

They don't seem to get much larger than 12" or so in diameter, produce a very gracile vine and flower relatively early. So far, the uppers have all been light green. I've had them flower at only about 18" in height but I have also had them produce vines of several feet.
