    I just want to say, Red Dragon, that the last pitcher is epic. It's just amazing. I like it because it kinda reminds me of the Red camo in Call of Duty lol

    Divaskid, we skipped over you! I love the teeth on the first raff and the purple colors of the second. I would say the second was a typical, but a very nice one at that.

    Divaskid's second raff almost looks like raff. var. elongata or as some of you people call it N. baramensis

    I don't think it's nearly tall enough. And elongata pitcher openings are more perpendicular to the ground.

    I find that N. rafflesiana is fairly tolerant to cool nights (low 60's) as long as the day temperatures are at least in the low to mid 80's (a little warmer would be even better). Cool day and night for prolonged periods more than a few days at a stretch = bad
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I haven't gotten to experiment with its toleration of cold as much as its toleration of heat. In my terrarium it reached about 105F and 100% RH this summer, yet my raffs were still going strong. I like to keep them at about 85-90F during the day and 65-75 at night. I aim to make some of them houseplants, seeing if they can handle prolonged periods of Intermediate conditions.

    My Rafflesiana can take 50 F for long periods (1-2 months) no problem, it's actually one of the hardiest plants i have. However, I did start having problems with it when temps dropped to 40 F.
