    Ah ok, so you're one of lucky growers so to speak in the US. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    How does your N. rajah perform? That would be the most reliable indicator of your skill and growing environment.

    That's quite interesting to have pitchers that large in the air. And soo many, N. rjah generally only have 3-5 active pitchers on the plant varying in condition of decaying, dead or good. What size in diameter is the plant? What soil is it in? Darkness? I don't think so, N. rajah appreaciates a very bright lighted position. The only Nepenthes that can tolerate a low light level that i am aware of is N. lowii in nature as a small rosetted plant.

    Ok, so you're not a beginner, but I still think that there might ought to be a little more thought put into a Nepenthes villosa, because, although there is nothing wrong with the plants that you have, all are well more forgiving than N. villosa, rajah included. If you really feel that you are 100% positively, absolutely, for sure that you can not only keep alive, but grow to thrive a Nepenthes villosa, I do have a source. BUT, you must be sure there will always be someone there (at one point in the day) to take care of/ check on the plant, and it must have PERFECT temperature and humidity, and with the occasional SoCal humidity plummet, N. villosa could possibly retaliate for months. So, I am just helping save you the money if the plant isn't well suited, and saving the plant if the environment is ill-suited. I hope I am not looking mean and greedy, just trying to see if there may be a few other equally unique but easier Nepenthes that you should perhaps get lots of experiance with, first.
    BEST WISHES!
