    Hi,

    after discussing the roots of N. rajah in one of the N. rajah threads it may be of interest for some how tall the roots even of a small seedling in fact are. This is a picture of a seedling few months out of TC with about one inch diameter.

    Joachim,

    Thanks for the photo! I am not surprised by it, but it certainly illustrates the point
    quite well. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words....

    I have seen plants of this species no more than 7 cm in diameter with roots that
    nearly fill a 10 cm diameter pot. Quite a remarkable thing.

    Thanks Joachim !!
    It's a very explicative picture.
    I post photos of my little rajah in July.
    I do it now because I don't know if it will be possible in future with Club Photo.




    What do you think about!

    Kind regards

    Also here is my 6 inch diameter Rajah, I figuered I'd post this ASAP too as Clubphoto deal on the no more free albums.It is in an 8 inch pot. Planted in pure living red and green sphagnum as you can see and gets a temp drop to 50-40F at night. Get's very high humidity and rain or RO water.




    You can see small side shoots near the plants main stem.
