    Wow...thats just beautiful! Wonderful plant and pics.

    Welcome to the forums, Axel. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Thanks for sharing the pics (and to Martin too). Not too often you see n. Rajah pics.

    Its too bad they are so hard find and so expensive. I'd love to have one myself but maybe ONE day...

    Great job on those plants!

    Hello,
    thank you for all your comments. I got this plant in the year 1999 (but im not sure).At this time the plant had a diameter of 4 centimeter. I fertilize my plant only with milk. And if the weather is hot, I open the terrarium in the evening to cool down the warm air. After that, I sprinkle the plant with water.

    I hope I could help you. If you have further questions you can contact me.

    bye,
    Axel Faix

    WOW! how do you use milk as a fertilizer if I might ask? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] And also, what is the light your using on your Rajah? It looks like a spot lamp or heat lamp to me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] And how large is your plant and pitchers? Thanks! I would love to hear how you fertilze it! Thanks!

    If a new pitcher opens, i put a few drops of milk in.I think it works.The whole plant has an diameter of about 45 cm.The leaves are about 20 cm long and 9 cm wide. The pitchers are about 10 cm long and have an diameter of about 4.5 cm (like a banana).
    The plant has expel a sprout (correct word?) with an diameter of 5-6 cm.

    Axel,

    If you don't mind my asking, as a former military brat who's parents were stationed in germany for several years, I know that german milk can and usually is a LOT thicker than what US citizens are used to, our 'fatest' milk is 4% milkfat...

    My wife (also a military brat) remembers German milk being more like creme?

    So can you describe the milk your using?
