"miniature form" - 1600m "Sulawesi, Indonesia"
form was discovered in January 2008 by Alfindra Primaldhi and Muhammad
Apriza Suska ( http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn/Species/v38n1p12_22.html ). Alfindra and M. A. Suska found this miniature population
at 1,600 meters where N. maxima grows along with N.
glabrata Turnbull & Middleton and Drosera
burmannii Vahl (Primaldhi 2008). It is not clear if these
dwarf, highland N. maxima plants should be
included into the concept of N. ‘Lake Poso’.
Alfindra states, “From my personal opinion, it reminds me of the
miniature N. maxima found around Anggi Lakes in
my conditions the plant reach 30cm in diameter and upto 1m in height.
Surface of the plant ( leaves, pitchers,stems ) is densely covered by
nectar glands.Plant is very easy and fast grower.I am growing this
plant on windowsill in plastic pot filled with live sphagnum moss.
