    N. rafflesiana pitcher

    Another nice N. rafflesiana pitcher developed in my lowland tank, and I wanted to share a picture of it. I'm also including a pic of a fresh N. x miranda pitcher. I know this hybrid is fairly common these days, but they are reliable and I like them.

    That N. rafflesiana pitcher is absolutely massive. I didn't realize the plants got so hefty. How old is that plant there?

    I'm stacking up my Nep collection at the moment but am quickly realizing that many of these plants will outgrow my grow rack in a matter of a few short years...

    Great pics, thanks for sharing

    TheFury: N. rafflesianas plants get pretty big, but this particular raff is one of the "giant" varieties. The plant is a cutting from an older plant, which I've had it for a number of years, I'm not sure how many. The cutting might be 3 years from striking. Although they seem very adaptable, they do better if you keep them pretty warm and humid. They exult in 95 highs during the day if the air is humid, but highs in the 80s are adequate to achieve the best growth. I do notice that I have to watch the medium for dryness because they drink a lot. The big leaves seem to transpire quite a bit of moisture.

    Awesome! I have a N. rafflesiana BE99 "Giant" clone but it's young and only has 4" pitchers at the moment.

    Have you ever gotten uppers from it? I'm curious to see what they look like on the giants.
