Originally classified as ionantha Huamelula, several grexs' of varying genetic material were discovered all by the same name, so ionantha maxima was split off as its own variety.  One of the larger ionanthas available, this variety grows thick recurving leaves and can tolerate full sun if transitioned into it.
