    Greg those are Mad upper pichers.

    Hmm.....perhaps this species likes high light levels and warmer temps? OR High light levels and low temps?

    "...Rajah is very easy to grow..."

    I wouldn't call a plant "very easy", which requires some bottles of ice every night, a terrarium and artificial lightning, wouldn't you ?

    Drosera capensis is _very easy_

    My bro-in-law has a Mad in a terrarium on the tray system under only 1 fluorescent light and it is a weed!!! Don't ask me to explain it

    Hi
    The shots of the Madagascariensis & Rajah plants at Kew were taken by me on a UK CPS day trip there earlier this year.

    Here are a few more shots behind the scenes:

    The day out was amazing, as until them I had never thought that Kew were that interested in CPs. The selection seen in their public glasshouses are small and not too impressive. So it was encouraging to see that there was such a great collection behind the scenes! Hopefully more of these specimens will be displayed in public soon.


    cheers

    Nathaniel,
    Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, Richmond, Surry, England. Their recent upsurge in interest in CP's is due to the efforts of a young horticulturist called Kathy King. Kath is originally from Australia and has completely turned the ailing Kew collection around. It's true that you wouldn't know it from the public displays.

    Has anyone seen the new highland Nepenthes house at Atlanta Botanic Gardens yet? It's a multi M$ construction and should be well worth seeing when they have it stocked!
