    Hiya Daniel-

    Any updated pics of your N. raff that came in with a damaged leaves and growth tip?

    In your last pic it was forming a new leaf.

    I too received a N. raff gigantea that was damaged during shipping. Snapped leaves and a broken growth tip, similar to yours.

    I'm hoping that it recovers like yours.

    Happy Holidays and Good Growing,
    Bo

    Hey There Bo. I just saw your plant, and it looks like it should make a full recovery. Sometimes the larger plants have more problems recovering from stress, but if your roots are plentiful and healthy, and your conditions are good, it should make a nice recovery as mine did. Sorry if the pictures aren't prime, as my grow lights were off.

    The pitchers are fairly light, but I am hoping that will change as the plant matures. Perhaps I will give it more light in my next setup. (I am going to be moving soon so no point in making a new enclosure right now).

    I forgot to say thanks for the advice . I didn't keep it soaked like that, but I had just taken that pic after watering it.

    LOL! Nepenthes x "Gangbuster". It just punks other neps for money while drinking it's juice and pimp slapping.

    Hiya Daniel-

    Looks like your N. raff has more than just recoverd

    Before you were worried about a damaged growth tip, but it seems now you have two going for you, great job

    Thanks for the positive words regarding my plant. It did come in with great root system. But so far I haven't seen any growth activity

    My lowland greenhouse keeps a high humdity of 85-95% and a temp around 80 - 90, but I think its the short photoperiod here in the Northwest (Oregon) is holding it back a bit. I'm hoping when the days get longer, I will see ALOT of growing activitiy.

    Keep up the great growing and Happy Holidays,
    Bo

    Zoinks! That really came back with a vengance!

    Rafs, in general, are fairly tough customers. Mine grow in humidity in the 50's days and high 60's to low 70's nights. I find that my one HUGE one pitchers in batches.....Also, it has a basal that's growing and pitchering fine, but the main vine won't pitcher any longer. Odd. Might be just me being inpatient, though, since two main vine leaves sufferend accidental budicide (killing of the pitcher bud - phrase just coined!).
