    N. raff Sarawak Bau Giant Search Is Over!!

    Hiya All-

    I finally have my N. raff Sarawak Bau giant

    It faired a bit better on the travel than did the other raff gigantea (Singapore Giant?) I got a couple of weeks ago

    Here are some pics that I took just after I had it potted up. Hope it acclimates well
    .

    Let me know what you folks think and enjoy .

    Good Growing,
    Bo

    nice plant. I like how there's equal amounts of red and cream on the pitcher body, I can't tell if it's red with cream speckles or cream with red speckles! Usually one color is more dominant. Those pitchers will get huge if I know raff. gigantea. The pitchers usually are half the tendril length on mine (and the tendrils are long.) Congrats on finally finding a "giant."

    Hiya Nepfreak-

    Thanks for the "congrats"

    From most of what I have read, N. raff giganteas are slow growers, but I hope it won't take forevers till I can put that pop down into a pitcher's throat. Now that'd would be a nice frame of size reference

    Any tips on growing a giant raff?

    Thanks and Good Growing,
    Bo

    I grow mine on a windowsill and it gets 5 inch pitchers right now, so it's not super hard. It is pretty slow for me though! I find they like a lot of water. I've lost pitchers from letting the soil dry out briefly, since I usually let the top dry out. It can take low light levels, but is tolerant of pretty high light levels too. Not a very hard plant to grow, you should do fine with it.
