    maybe the best way to grow N. rajah (and other "real highlanders") indoors is in an cool room (even during summer) with additional heating and lighting during the day.

    There is a very good homepage to this topic on the net :

    PS : 35&#36 seems to be a fair prize for a rajah with this size.
    Mine is about 2,5" at the moment but does not show mature features (peltate tendril insortion, for excample) There are always only 4 green leafes and 2-3 living pitchers (0,5") at one time.

    Ohh Really! Great! I hate heating. Cooling is OK. I grow Ventricosa and Veitchii(I think it is Veitchii) in a unheated tank. Would that be OK for it with a daytime temp of about 50-60 and a nightime temp of about 40-50. I think that is too cold for day temps but nightime temps sound good to me how about you? Thanks Tony and Martin. You are really helping me out ALOT! Nep.G.

    Why's your terrarium so cold??

    I would say 55-62 at night, 75-80 during the day.

    Well if you feel the plants are growing well I would not move it.

    OK Tony. Since my Grandmother has a scanner and I have some pics. of all my plants I'll try to get up there sometime this week and post them as well as the long awaited pic of the unidentified Nepenthes! Umm.. last night my internet was screwed up so i'll repost this message since it didn't go through.

    For N.Rajah I have decided what I want to know for a sum up. What are the BEST growing conditions to grow it in? Please fill in these or give me a list of the BEST growing conditions.


    Soil-
    Light-
    Temp.-
    Natural Growing Conditions in The Wild-
    Humidity-

    Thank You Very Much! Sorry for all of the endless questions but this plant is so challenging and as well as amazing! Thanks. Nep.G.

    Soil.. fine mix but loose, well drained
    Light.. high
    Temp.. Night 55-60, day 80
    Humidity..Night 90%+, day not much lower than 70%
    (much more sensitive to water quality than most Nepenthes)

    Natural growing conditions:
    Open grassy sloping areas in loose soil. 1500-2600 m elevation.

    (Lowland is generally considered 0-1000m)

    I have plenty of pure water so that isn't a concern. About the soil could you give me a mix you or someone you know uses that is suitable for it and that it grows great in. Also what soil does it grow in naturally? Thanks. Nep.G.
