    A few pics

    I had to take out some plants from a tank I was cleaning, and thought I would take some pics.

    These are pictures of N. x dwarf peacock and N. rafflesiana.

    Thanks for the comments. I love the dwarf peacock, too. The pitchers don't get very big, but they're colorful and it always makes a lot of them with very little effort on my part. This plant has been growing in an enclosure under 6500k HO fluorescent lights. I do feed it canned crickets sometimes.

    The N. rafflesiana pitchers in the photos are the same clone but not the same plant, and they are growing in very different conditions. In lieu of more pics, I'll give you some "stats." The original was labeled, "giant form," and the pitchers do get bigger sooner than a "typical" clone I have. The ones with the dwarf peacock are growing out in the open on a table. That plant is very big, about 2 feet tall with a 40" leaf spread. The one in the last picture is is growing in a very humid lowland enclosure and is about half the size of the other. It began as a cutting from the other one. Pitcher size on both plants is similar. As far as I can see, raffs seem to be very adaptable as far as temperature and humidity, but there is a wide difference in form, and it does matter what clone you start with. In any case, typicals will get big enough pitchers on large plants if they are happy.

    I found a picture that shows one of the raffs. That's it climbing up the wall in the back beside the mirror in the corner.
