My brother wants to know how to take care of a Nepenthes rajah that I got him , but he does'nt believe a word I say about how to take care of these plants , and then he refused to take the plant i gave him and wants to get one from anybody in the forums . So post or message me for care intructions for this plant , and if any body is willing to give him that plant , then message me through the forums or post here . One more thing , take a vote if this plant is easy to take care of or hard , That brother of mines , he'll never trust me about any thing i say .

uhh, you got a plant and you have no idea how to take care of it? well the only people i know with rajah are Nepenthes Gracilis, Tony Paroubek, and Martin
how much did you pay for it? since its a Nepenthes i think you should post this into the Nep forum, and if you search around in the nep forum, under the pages, then you can find other posts about it, nepG has asked about now he owns one and its growing kinda fast for a SLOW grower, its a ultra highland, it likes the night temps between around, 40-50 and the day temps around, 70-80
not too hot, and it likes lots of sun and the humidity has to ALWAYS be around, OVER 80% HUMIDITY for best growth, nepG as his most of the time in 100% humidity and he gives it cool temps 40-50 even though it tolerates 50-60 at night but his is growing fast because he gives it really good conditions [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
ask him about it, maybe #### post a picture,

A nepenthes rajah is a nepenthes rajah regardless of who is providing the plant. One coming from a forum member will be no different than the one you are offering to your brother. Your brother should say "thank you" and then get advice from this forum or research the web.
Nep G offers good information. Take it to heart and practice the care suggestions on the TWO plants you have. Being such a rare plant, you are lucky that both you and your brother have one. There are many people who would love to get one.
Perhaps since your n. rajah is so large and growing so well (catching and eating 5-lb. squirrels), you could take a cutting of it and share it with someone on the forums who has been looking for a rajah.

I'm moving your topic to the Nepenthes forum, you should be able to get more assistance there.
