    N.rajah is not an ultrahighlander. I have had nepenthes veterans explain the niche of the rajah to me. The rajah appreciates warmer days around high 70's to low 80's in the morning while getting 50's at the night. Any sway of temperatures from this ideal range makes the plant grow slower than its regular pace of a leaf in 2-3 weeks. My rajah currently takes around 4 weeks or so to make a leaf due to lower day temps.

    true! But I was just picking at the "70 is perfect". That is perfect for ultrahighlanders. rajah is pretty picky in its own way. It tries to be original I guess.

    70 is perfect if he cant get it much warmer is what i meant lol...and Rajah is a highland/ultrahighlander....it has to be to have hybridized with Villosa but it does not require the cold nights like villosa, though it appreciates it into the low 50s, upper 40s..
