EPh

Sex:

Origin: Sabah

Notes: this belongs to a group of plants called “pieriensis”. This is not a published name, it's more like a nickname, spread in cultivation in different versions (pierrensis, pereirensis, pierensis, peirensis, periensis etc). This species is not supposed to grow in Sabah. Rob Cantley says: “A former Sabah Park official by the name of Sonny Pereira once showed me what he thought was N. maxima growing near the Mamut copper mine close to Kinabalu Park. We didn't spend long there since it was growing in gloomy dense rattan with more leeches per square inch than I have ever seen. I took some terrible photos and then beat a hasty retreat. Later that year I saw N. macrovulgaris for the first time on the other side of Sabah and I remember thinking how much it resembled the plant Sonny had found. Sonny however, remained convinced he had found N. maxima and for years used to take people to see it and take cuttings. I've just got an inkling that the N. maxima 'var. periensis' might be the same plant. Sort of green, with a wide mouth...?”. While this plant looks nothing like N. macrovulgaris, the first part of the story seems to fit with origin and nickname. It would be nice to find some photos from those times and understand if that was a natural or artificial colony.

EPn

Sex:

Origin: Sulawesi

Notes: sold as “var. curtisii”, an unpublished name given in cultivation to a group of plants once called N. curtisii, now considered a synonym of N. maxima. Sam Estes says: “N. curtisii was grown from seed sent back to England by Charles Curtis, from an expedition to Borneo in 1882. Charles Clarke thinks that the seed was more likely collected in Sulawesi (also visited by Curtis in 1882). Sometimes thought to be a N. fusca or a N. maxima hybrid, it is now considered a N. maxima”.
