    Talking Nepenthes rajah

    Hey guys,

    Just a little snapshow of my holy grail giving me some goodies to enjoy.

    So If ppl remember seeing my pics a while ago...this was my first rajah pitcher...which incidentally formed ON A newer leaf...i.e., the leaf was closer to the moss and it pitchered first....but another leaf that was high in the air was SUPPOSED to be the first pitcher.

    So this is pitcher 2 whcih actually formed first:



    Now pitcher 1 which formed later but was supposed to form first...as a result its a lot smaller. around a 1 inch in size



    And the best of all....pitcher 3....a whopping 3 inches in size with an adult peristome.

    it was completely hidden in the moss until I uncovered it in shock::



    Finally my ultimate plant comes around.

    thanks for watching..hope you enjoy it ....maybe not as much as I do...but still.

    cheers,

    Varun

    Thanks guys! Yeah! I was surprised when I saw that....I never really expected that the pitchers would already get this wavy peristome.

    hat 3rd is quite a jump from the second and first...cant wait for the 4th!
    Thats exactly what I was thinking myself. lol!

    Yeah, that peristome is definitely more "rajah-ish."

    well...it also looks like an ovata at this stage. I was looking into this plant and it has quite a resemblance with this pitcher. The difference being ovata's pitchers are upright whereas rajah bases its pitchers on a tilt.
