Nepenthes maxima X mira is an Exotica Plants hybrid between two highlanders. Both species parent plants are easy growers except N. mira is a slower grower than N. maxima. After I received this plant, I put it outdoors in full sun and it burned quite a bit. I thought I killed it. But it adjusted quickly and now is growing quite well. It's one of my Nepenthes that I don't pay much attention to compared to some of my other Exotica Plants hybrids. It's an easy grower that should be quite adaptable to a variety of environments. As with many N. maxima crosses, they are stead and vigorous growers that are "bulletproof" to less than ideal conditions.
