    My Nepenthes rajah has some basal shoots too, there is the main plant of about 4 inches (10cm) in diameter, 5 basal shoots of about 2 inches (5 cm), and yesterday I found a new basal shoot of 1/2 inch (1,25cm).

    Should I have to cut them?

    Or it is ok for a Nepenthes rajah to live together with them?

    Kind Regards

    You don't need to cut basals off, my personal view is that they make little difference to the overall growth of the main vine. However, you can remove them and grow them as cuttings. It may be better to snap them off rather than cut them off, but again it probably doesn't make much difference. Simply pot them in an appropriate medium and they should grow.

    Hi to all!
    Several weeks after posting those pics on this forum I wanted to inform to everyone that Nep. rajah and Nep. villosa are growing fine in my terrarium.They have not received any shock caused from the very cold weather.
    All 2 plants are now growing. Rajah of course is growing faster than villosa.
    Greetings,

    TWO MONTH AFTER :
    The Nepenthes rajah now is happy in the terrarium.
    It is developing a lot of pitchers as you all can check.
    PLEASE NOTE : the leaf that has developed outside has not anymore pitchered!
    This is a clear sign that rajah was really to its limits when 1 month ago it was snowing outside.
    Villosa instead also suffered less,pratically nothing!
    It is growing faster and faster.
    My growing conditions are :
    15 hours of 120 neon ligh.
    During daylight : 25 Celcius and 65% Humidity
    During Night : 18 Celcius and 80% Humidity.
    See yah!

    I was thinking about keeping the Nepenthes villosa the whole year outside but unfortunately it is not possible in my country.Weather can change too often.
    But even I would have a "mild" winter the problem with ultra highland plants is that they resist to cold temperatures but they also ask some more milder temperatures during day time.
    If not...maybe they don't die but they will remain without continue to growing for the whole winter!
    No sense also! Better not to reach the plant's limits and also put it inside home where it will be at least warmer but with less humidity and light...

    Exclamation

    Hello! Hmm... I have been reading this thread and I am thinking... Since your plants seemed to have liked those days expossed to snow and cold temps, they even seem that this expossure was what they were needing.

    Waht about if i take my N. villosa and place it every now and then into my fridge for several hours, maybe days. Would it work? What do you think?

    Mr_Aga, congrats on your plants... My villosa has never look that nice.

    Cheers,
    Jorge Joel...
