    Glenn, up to you.

    Capslock and colinliew, thank you!


    Schloaty, yes N. sibuyanensis can be a rajah mimic at times! If I hadn't labeled it I bet most woudl have guess N. rajah [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Joachim, yes it's paying off finally [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The mira, white rim deal might just be a one time deal. I have a few more pictures to share also of it and the rajah. Actually, it loves the brighter light! It has doubled to almost tripled in size from being brough from indoors to out there in the greenhouse. It is going to pitcher very soon also. The rajah is 32 cm across now versus 18cm across indoors.

    here's a non-flash pic of the N. mira:

    And rajah pics:

    Pitcher preparing to swell in moss, there is another pitcher that is going to go first I hope. Didn't wanna bother it tho, it's buried in the moss.

    Wow! That rajah looks impressive. Be sure to keep us updated on the pitcher...

    I will collect some pollen when the flower opens. If possible, send some seeds my way, assuming you are succesful. I will PM you when I have some.

    Glenn, sounds good. And sounds like a good cross, N. x rokko x N. maxima. What form is it? Highland/lowland and what area? Brunei/Tlatwiran?

    I purchsed it from J&K Orchids at an orchid show. Their website lists the N. maxima they sell as a highland form, so I have assumed that's what it is. Unfortunately that's all I know.

    Eh better yet! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Well that sounds like a neat cross to me. It's a deal my friend, and you can count on a share of the seeds as the doner always gets a share of the goods.

    Hi Dustin,

    the N. mira looks less N. albomarginta-ish under natural light. As a greenhouse grower you won't get pitchers and good growth all year round. Especially the higland plants will suffer during summer when you can't control the temperatures as you want. I've visited Christian and Johannes Marabini this year. Both have greenhouses with fantastic adult Nepenthes - but none of them had a functional N. rajah pitcher to show. Below are actual pictures of my oldest N. rajah. I got this plant exact five years ago as a 1.5cm seedling. It is growing better now, but nowhere near your N. rajah or the plant of Josh. It is around 15cm in diamater and on the second picture the big root-system of this small plant can be seen quite well.





    Cheers Joachim
