    Exclamation

    Iíll order at the end of August N.burbidgeae and perhaps N.pilosa, I have an answer about the first one:
    does someone grow N.rajah and N.burbidgeae together ? Wich grows faster in the same conditions ?

    About one month an half I bought N.sanguinea and N.rajah bare root. The first one was a rosette of 9 cm in diameter with one pitcher of 2 cm while N.rajah a rosette of 5cm and 3 pitchers the larger of 1 cm. I put them after potted in a little terrarium for increase humidity and then placed outdoor.
    I thought tha N.sanguinea was faster than N.rajah above all in summer.
    Instead I observed a strange thing : in condition not proper of highland for temperature (temps from 23 C to 31 C) N.rajah is now opening the third pitchers while N.sanguinea opened only one.
    WHY ??
    They also take direct sun for 2 hours after 6 PM.

    Regards
    rajah

    I wouldnt grow N. rajah and N. burbidgea together because N. rajah likes nightly lows in the 50s and N. burbidgea is reluctant pitcher in temps below 60. If you want the degrees in Celius then I can get them for you, but I am not good with Celius and I dont want to do more work than I have to. Good Luck.

    Rajah, it jsut depends on your conditions the plants are in why they have only opened like 1 or 2 pitchers. Your sanguinea will be definetly faster than Rajah! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Rajah and Burbidgeae can/could be grown together. Rajah can have lows around 60 but Burbidgeae can actually go to like 57 fior a nightly low. And it should pitcher well. Both palnts wouldn't grow to thier best ability but woudl grow surprizingly fine, IMO. Also direct sun after 6 is pretty hot sun! Late afternoon sun is very hot and burning! But perhaps you could put up a small screen on the tank front after 6pm to reduce risk of burning??

    I can only speak for Virginia USA, but here, sun after 5-6 p.m. is weak. Its still very bright, but the sun has moved too far away to do damage to plants or people. (That's why most sunbathers pack it in after about 4 p.m. or so). In no way is sun after 6 here "very hot and burning". I like LATE afternoon sun as I know its safe for my plants. The air temperature may still be hot but the sun has become a pussycat.
