    nep too close to terrarium wall?

    I have my rajah in a terrarium planted right up against the glass wall and it has a leaf/pitcher forming against it. i was wondering, would it be getting scrunched growing against a wall and die or will it find a way to grow beside or up against the wall?

    It should adapt. The leaf and/or pitcher may end up deformed because of it, but if all other conditions are good it should grow anyway. Personally, I like to keep mine a little bit away from obstructions in order to facilitate air flow.

    In my experiance with neps, whenever a leaf touched the wall of my terrarium the plant aborted the pitcher forming on that leaf, even if I moved it away. I've never had a rajah though, so it may not be the same.
    I would definately reccomend moving it away from the glass, but don't expect it to pitcher on that leaf.

    Good luck!

    Is it literally planted in the terrarium or is it in a pot where you can freely move it?

    it is literally planted in there, should i transplant it into the middle or would the plant be in shock and the leaf would die?

    why would you plant it in the terrarium evergreen
    that is just asking to kill it
    Neps, especially rajah require good drainage. if you wanted to plant in the terrarium, you should have just put the pot in the media so you can move it when you wanted.

    I gota agree with Kriss this type of plant should not be planted in a terrarium but you can keep it in the pot in a terrarium if its large enough.
