    I also got a N raff from phil and jeff, but that was back in February. It went through he11 a few weeks ago (the whole bird thing) but thankfully it was just a "flesh wound."

    Before:

    Sorry for the big files everyone, but I'm learning to use photoshop, and I'm having trouble making small jpegs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    @ Spectabilis

    I got this N rafflesiana 'typical' from Pft. The before pic was taken shortly after I recieved it and the after pic was taken on october 11. The plant likes warm temps, and I think that a little direct sunlight seem to give the pitchers that maroon coloration.


    @ nathaniel

    I've had that raff since mid-February, so i've had it now for roughly 9 months. I'm not really sure how many leaves the plant makes per month, but it has 10 leaves at the moment, so given that something like 6 leaves have died since I got it, I think the average should be around 2 leaves per month, give or take a leaf. This particular plant has pitchered on evey leaf for me, so the pithcers per months should be at 2 as well. The plant only has one pitcher on it though thanks to a little bird that decide to snack on it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    @ Rampuppy

    I'm using photoshop 7, I haven't seen that choice yet on photoshop, but then again I had to reformat my computer, so I don't have too much experience with that program yet. I think that I Just have the picture at too high a resolution though (1152 x 864 pixels), so I'll try to bring it down the next time I format a picture. I'll look for that command once I have everything back to normal. Thanks for the advice. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Joel if you take your image size of 1152 x 864 pixels and reduce the pixel size to like 400 x 250 the image will retain it's resolution/detail and not use as much space.
    Don't change your DPI/resolution as then you will simply have a huge file with a bad image quality, hope that helps some! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Nice plant too! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    hmm


    I think that's it swords! I'll try changing the image size and the resolution. Thanks for the advice (and the complement too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] ).

    well.. you could do that to... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    without going into photoshop to confirm, I believe the path to that command is IMAGE > Resize Image

    Oh, and this is my raff as of a few months ago... it's bigger now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]







    To the left is Ventricosa X Maxima, behind it is N. Homus Depoitcus.

    All the pothos and purple jew has since been stripped out of the tank... the green patches you see are both D. Spathulata and the live Sphagnum that has since formed mats over much of the tank.

    there are some baby sars I had started in there, and a large purp that is now outside... all in all, the tank looks NOTHING like what it used to... but it's still a pretty pic.
