    I doubt Peter D'amato would tell you that. There is no presence of peat on Mt. kinabalu. N. rajah grows in slightly depressed areas of ultramafic soils. It grows in full to partly sunny conditions on gentle slopes of hills. Pitchers may develope in shade but plants do not grow in "darkness". Nepenthes are generally a sun lover, the more the better in the right amount. Pitchers do NOT form in the air hanging out unless it is a rare climbing stem with upper pitchers. The plants are generally rosetted with large lower pitchers resting on the ground.

    Hi ElectricCarnivores!
    Are you sure that he didn't mean the Long Fiber Sphagnum that peat is harvested from? (the lower, dead/decayed version) Also, partial shade and darkness are two TOTALLY different things... On a slightly different note, I suggest you see my post in Jmenprkr's topic in General Discussions entitled:

    Haunustly, I think you guys need to stop doubting him, and accusing him of lying. Just answer his question already (pm me on how to get N. villosa). Hmm, by the way, do you think you could possibly work a deal to get a rare plant like that for me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . I'd be more than happy to send the money.

    Hi all:

    Dear Nep Gracillis:

    Can you tell us, how much of a drop in temperature villosa needs to do well?? and how much heat it can withstand??

    Thanks

    Gus

    In the interest of rounding out the opinions expressed regarding this topic, I'd like to offer a few pieces of advice. First, N. villosa is far more demanding in its requirements than almost any other species in the genus. Therefore, unless one is really willing to take somewhat drastic measures to grow it well, successful cultivation is remote indeed. Secondly, this species is very slow growing, and one can expect to wait two or more years to obtain a plant even five centimeters in diameter, assuming the plant is provided with ideal conditions.

    Furthermore, success with species such as NN. khasiana, fusca or even rajah does in no way presage success with N. villosa. The latter really does need markedly colder conditions to thrive, and past the seedling stage, will not grow well if kept too warm.

    Finally, the coast of Southern California is far too warm for this plant. I speak from experience, having lived there for several years. Please take my advice and select one of the many other beautiful and more easily cultivated species (unless, of course, you are really willing to give this species what it needs, and that means a refrigerated terrarium). You'll probably be much happier, and so will N. villosa.

    Good growing!

    The Fullerton Aboretum has plant sales? Do they happen to have cp's besides sarrs and neps? I would like to know as I do not live to far away from that place. Do you happen to attend the LACPS meetings?
    So I guess that you received the plants from Leo? He is definetly one of the best growers I have seen and his collection is very impressive.
