    Looks like a bit of frost damage on your N. rajah.

    Tyfone,
    I keep villosa and rajah out but near the wall.
    So they don't catch wind or water or the extreme cold!
    They are out but not as plants like sarracenia and dionea.
    Here are some others photo for you!
    Bye!

    My rajah is not going to die,don't worry! Better : don't bring unluck! it was red coloured already with the first could nights!
    Mr_Aga

    AN UPDATE : I have also put rajah inside home and also 3 days after my villosa : THE REASON? Sure...it was constantly snowing for more than 2 days and temperatures never went more than 4 celcius.
    So..since I own only one villosa and not 10,I prefer not to risk "too much", even that I know that she can be able to support lower temperature.
    Check the last days temperatures....

    Basals are extremely common in tissue cultured N. rajah, at least for a year or two after you get it. It is a species that has a long memory for a particular type of growth regulator commonly used in TC. However, they'll also produce basals in times of stress.

    I agree with SydneyNeps, most immature plants of N.rajah from tissue cultured do produce small basals. I've seen this alot in cultivation. But i would'nt say the main vine is dying off due to the fact there's no vining even starting at this point. You're plant should be fine with a bit more careful care put into it.
