As I said in the other forum about squirrels , my camera is still broken . The cutting that I gave my brother has 2 medium size pitchers , I got the cutting from my nepenthes rajah that ate a squirrel , the place I got the orinal plant that ate the squirrel was called carnivore craze , The place had every sort of carnivorous plant you could think of , I got my nepenthes rajah for about 20 dollars , but since the manager is my friend he gave me it for 15 dollars .
If you have pitchers big enough to eat squirrels why do you say it has "MEDIUM" sized pitchers? I really doubt that you have a N. Rajah this big for that low of a price. If you need care info why don't you bring your little brother to the guy you got it from, it's more believable to convince your brother on care if you speak to somebody rather than reading what people say in the forums. I don't think your telling the whole truth, your story just doesn't sound right. I doubt anybody has squirrel eating sized N. Rajah in cultivation yet. N. Rajah wouldn't even be able to survive outside in low humidity for 30 minutes unless you live in it's habitat. Hows the weather over there in Mt. Kinabalu, Borneo?
well as you tell me, you joke alot, so what do you think i was doing? :biggrin:
but its unbeleiveable, a rajah for 15 dollers, or even 20 dollers
well, she said cutting, nepG you got yours as a plant with roots and growing vigourously, and tuyen, the plant is hard, but im still stumped, why do you order a plant and you dont even know how to take care of it?
and i also think that was pretty rude of your brother to do what he did, i would have been jumping for joy if it was me, but then id get mad cus i couldnt supy it with the right conditions and it would die
The ONLY people I am aware of that have a Rajah capable of eating SMALL mammals are Richard's freinds (forgot his name), Peter D'Amato, Andrea's Wistuba I belive but not sure, the ICPS, Johhanes Maribini, and a few other's. I think if your Rajah is that big it would be "immposible" to provide it with correct conditions as you don't even have a tank big enough for it yet, nor you say you have it in the right conditions anyway!!!
OK people [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I know that this isnt my forum but be nice. Maybe the squirrels are small there well on second thought a 5 lb squirrel is pretty huge that's the size of a small baby.
One way or the other she didnt say she doesn't know how to grow it but that her very rude brother in my opinion doesnt want her advise on how to grow it but somebody elses.
You know if I were you I wouldnt worry about growing directions for him especially if he doesnt even want the plant.
I agree it doesnt make much sense but what the heck do we know, some sucker coulda sold it to her not knowing how rare it was or lied about what it is. And hey if those other people can grow one that size why cant Tuyen Thi or whoever sold it to her? It's not like you gotta register your plant once it gets ssooooo big. This may possibly be an exageration but theres no sense in being rude.
My opinion exactly. Well said unkownclown!
I have no intent on being mean, I am just using exclaimation points to EMPHASIZE certains areas I want peopel to look at most, I mean it is hard to "talk" through writing! <<<notice the exclaimation (emphasization on that point).
You tell them unknown clown and I don't mean to be rude but I am a boy not a girl . To make sure the Exact Amount of weight of the squirrel , I t was 2 pounds , the enzymes added one more pound and the pitcher weighed 2 pounds .

Oh...so it was a 2-lb. squirrel. *Why would a squirrel go into a nep pitcher? *They eat seeds, nuts and berries...and roots. *And once in, why wouldn't it be able to get out? *Squirrels aren't small animals (well, ok...compared to an elephant it is). *How big is the pitcher? *Must be HUGE. *Where do you grow such a large nep? *What area of the country do you live in? *How long have you had it and was it this big when you bought it? Did it grow real fast?
Not being a nep expert, I am curious to know the growing conditions to get such huge pitchers.
