    N. rajah galore

    Hi,

    Long time sonce I posted here

    On another forum Geoff Mansell was asking about our N. rajah. Here are a few photos. All the plants are from TC from the usual 4 clones. They have been in TC for around 20 years and no mutations (so far). We don't know yet whether they are male or female. Maybe the largest of them will flower soon. They are grown in clay (with a topping of coco-chips simply to stop the clay from splashing up too much).

    We literally didn't want to throw them away as we had too many in TC and planted them outdoors as an experiment that sort of, well, grew. There are about 20,000 in total at various sizes from 1" dia upwards. Anyone have any ideas what do do with them :-[ The oldest of them has been out there for about 5 years now.

    Some views of one of what we call our "rajah patches". These plants are grown hard with a lot of light. Some insect prey and also Osmocote.

    Here are the only plants out of 25,000 from TC that have produced variegated foliage. Why? I have no clue.


    Another "rajah patch". The largest plants we have are on the left.

    Very interesting Rob.

    When you say "clay" do you mean the red mud stuff that compacts and is pretty much the dominant soil type here in Atlanta or do you mean clay pellets?

    Awe-inspiring! I think it's so cool to see N. rajah growing in the ground like that. And how beautiful those large specimens are. Maybe I missed it in the original post, but how old are the big plants?

    Yeah, I could have swore I saw you say the oldest are just five years old. Maybe I read that wrong, or maybe The Magic Window's other side is in Sri Lanka?

    Well... you could send less than half to the US and less than half to Europe and probably have most collectors covered with a few thousand to spare. If you do I'd love to be on that list Very very nice.
