    Cool. While I'm not a big fan of N. rajah I can appreciate why people desire them so much; especially when there are 20,000 of them.

    lol! Rob! You could try growing them in a perimeter around your nursery.

    OR

    You could give us a small extra rajah as a "complimentary gift".

    OR

    You could ask your distributor to lower the price.

    Pyro,

    The soil is clay, natural sandy clay. You can see places where after heavy rain it has splashed up onto the leaf. The soil was (and is still regularly) treated with nematicides. Actually, the plants we sell don't come from these patches but from a nursery where they get mollycoddled.

    Justlikea pill,

    The largest of these plants is around 5 years out of the flask.

    lol! guys.... Don't think we might be getting any of these plants as Rob explained that, the plants sold normally don't come to this patch. SO I am guessing these are probably his own "seed germination", experimentation or maybe display plants. Even....I think I personally wouldn't dare taking one of those big plants without ensuring that i can grow the rajah properly. Thats just me though.

    Holy cow--look at all those rajahs!!

    What an awsome display. And what an amazing quandary! What to do with 20,000 rajahs. lol

    Those large pitchers are beautiful! (The paw even looks pretty good for a paw...hehe)

    Thanks for showing those pics. That's a sight too see. I've always loved the oval leaves on rajahs...very pretty.
