    rajah's not an ultrahighlander now? This is more confusing than politics!
    Insanity is a sane response to an insane world.

    nope! N.rajah is just a highlander. There are only few species that fit the ultrahighlander category based on their local altitude. N.villosa, N.lamii, N.aristolochioides are 3 which belong to this classification. However, aristolochioides has a wider range than the other two extending into the "highland" category.

    Its not confusing. its just depends on how strict you are. In the end, all these plants need night time cooling. Relative cooling levels and day time max temps are lower for villosa and lamii...but most of the others have the standard highland temperature ranges of 75 to 85F day and 55 to 65 at night.

    Vraev, rajah extends into ultrahighland temps as well, read my post above. Many rajah grow with villosa in the wild. Note the hybrid between villosa and rajah, N.x Kinabaluensis

    well...there is a bit of overlap...but not too much. THis info is from Charles Clarke's book. Villosa generally grows plenty at higher altitudes than the rajah. Yes...there are some which grow at rajah's altitude and yes...there is the x kinabaluensis. But, villosa's dense population is at higher altitudes. The lamii is apparently the nep that lives at the highest altitude than any.

    Lamii is supposedly the highest growing nep, yes. But, Rajah's location is at the boundaries of ultrahighland-highland, and as you said, there is more than likely an overlapping area, which would still suggest that Rajah is an intermediate between highland and ultrahighland. but not a TRUE ultrahighlander, which i know it is not, but deffinitly appreciates the colder nights.

    One of my last and final questions, how long does it take a rajah to make each pitcher? like a pitcher every two months or.....?
