    Thumbs up

    Hello guys!
    So,those were my ultrahighland nepenthes villosa and rajah today with the second day of snow....as you can see yourself in the background it was right snowing while I was taking the pics!
    My rajah and villosa were out with a temperature of + 2 Celsius.
    The Villosa is continuing to grow,even that with those last cold weeks has slow down.
    The rajah is fine but it simply doesn't grow anymore,but as you can see...she is fine and is right developing pitchers in every leaf!
    We had in Italy nearly 2 entire weeks of cloudy and foggy days ( cold also ) and villosa and rajah could not take advantage of the more warmer daylight hours to grow a little more ( because sun was not shining and so not warming the plants or the air).
    But all is fine as you can see.
    Anyway,I have given today the right present to my rajah for beeing so strong with all those weeks of cold weather : I put rajah in my terrarium and have taken some photos to check growing progresses in 1 week again.
    I will inform you all,let me know what you think about it.
    Ah..I forgot...of course Nepenthes villosa is continuing to sleep outside home!

    Tyfone,
    I warn you,those 2 neps are not a child play...those are reallly slow to grow...( figure out that sometimes I take pictures of them every week to find out some growing differences between day A and day B ).
    I grow them from September 2005,so it is a little early to give you real true tips how to grow them.
    The most difficult season will be in summer,because they are not used to have 35 celsius for long time!
    I am growing nepenthes from a couple of years already[B] but my growing skills will be strongly tested for those 2 plants!
    I can tell you that Villosa is growing at altitude of more than 3100 meters ....so...take care!

    I know...and I figured that those to plants would do at least good here in Sweden.
    I think I can have it outside from about march to october.
    Ill put the in shade in summer. And Ill grow them in a small terraria on my balcony and in my windowsill in winter. (in a small terraria)
    I can get them dairly cheap so I will try and go for it. Maybe not jump on villosa directly. Ill start with Rajah and maybe in 1-2 years Ill start with Villosa.
    Need all the experience I can get...

    I don't think that IN SWEDEN there will be high temperatures PROBLEMS!
    So,leave it out to sun shine even in summer,don't worry.
    Here in Milan ( Italy) it can be really hot!
    Bye!
    quoted from the topic windy!!


    but temperatures here in sweden in summer can get really hot to.. like up to 38 sometimes 40 C in full sun (100 F - 104 F)
    thats why I was thinking of rajah instead becuase its more heat tolarante...
    Need all the experience I can get...
