    I guess I would be the same Alex you are talking about.

    I would also have to agree with the light, but I made my greenhouse before my neighbour made his house and he built a big wall right over the greenhouse because his house sits higher on the hill. I now get full sunlight until the early evening when the house blocks the sun from the greenhouse.

    Not much to do there, can't re-build the greenhouse or take the neighbour house down. The plants will have to live that way.

    Thank you very much vraev.

    Actually the Rajah's took much longer before they started pitchering. It must have taken those two plants over a year to produce the first pitcher and growing nice, but now they are producing consistently so each plant has 4 or 5 small pitchers.

    well! Mine has taken me 8 whole months to make a pitcher. And now there are already signs of worry. The pitcher has gotten almost pitch black. Its not withered. its just like 2-3 weeks. but its become really tanned. The darkest shade of red you can ever imagine-with speckled red is what it is. The peristome is totally black. its kinda worrying...but the plant seems alright. its growing fine so I have confidence that it will do fine.

    Soil mix is the same mix I use on all most ever CP I grow. Equal parts of dried LFS, perlite, and peat moss.

    You can check out this post, reply #14 for conditions.

    LFS, fine orchid bark, perlite, charcoal, osmunda fiber. Probably about 70% LFS alive if available or mix alive and dried.
