    How can they get it to grow this big and so well! I find this species a royal pain in the butt! It is tougher than ma Rajah or even my Lowii! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] Any comments welcome. Very nice plant at Kew gardens.

    Spect 73, Rajah is very easy to grow and that doesn't surprize me at all.

    Greg, in your house. Now that intesresting. When you got it did it go through a phase when the new leave came out they were very small and much smaller than the previous leaves? Mine is making tiny leaves and that kinda freaks me out a little. It's a cheap plant but I like it because it has intrigued me on getting it to grow right! It's a really mindboggling Nepentehs for me at least. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Yes. Instead of going into the kind of shock you would expect, stasis, it kept growing, only the first leaf to unfurl was about half as long as the other ones... The one after that is a bit longer, and the one unfurling now is probably gonna be a bit longer once its all said in done. Other than growing leaves, it still has that "Shocked" air about it... I hope the newest leaf pitchers, but of course, a live plant is also something to be thankful for... It still has a pinky pitcher from when it was in Joel's possesion...

    Out of curiosity... The dark bright red pitchers... Are they lowers, or are the ones I see on google a differnet species? Heres a pic of what I see madagascariensis as in my head...



    Yellow and Funnell Shaped... The contrast between our pictures is unbelievable. Is it because they are so overly dimorphic between upper/lower pitchers like eymae is?

    NG,

    I have a mad that has been a royal pain in the tooter as well.

    Recently I added 2 Seven Inch fans to my lighting hood, and this is keeping my temps around 83 as a high, and high seventies at night, the mad seems to like it since its no longer turning a mottled weathered brown shortly after growing a new leaf now, quite the contrary, it's sending out new shoots from multiple dormant nodes...

    and the temp is the only thing I changed... :-|

    Same story, my mad recently got moved into much warmer and higher light area (swapped in sunsticks for some of the lights), it is now producing well and the pitchers have developed into the nice bright red color. Growing much faster and larger than before. I am going o be moving some other plants in to see if they appreciate it also.

    In fact I looked at the picture again and it appears that the plant shown was recently under more intense light, th lower leaves appear to have been sunburned, mine had the same reaction until it got used to it, new leaves are back to green.

    Cheers
