    Thanks! I'm glad the pics are OK!

    The rajah's last leaf measured 26 cm after fully expanding and begining to drop the tendril. The last pitcher was 10 cm. Unfortunately the latest pitcher which was supposed to be biggest so far got knocked around a bit too much or something and opened prematurely! The wings had not yet expanded but the lid popped open. Once it started the whole thing opened... being only 5 cm after hardening off (but looking funny)! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] That pitcher rested in the N. macrophylla pot, which I have to rotate to keep the newest developing N. macro leaves out of the shade of the rajah pot.

    Incidentally Nep G., that was the rajah pitcher that was going into the test of free hanging rajah pitchers VS standing in a pot rajah pitchers. I dunno if you recall that conversation in a post some time ago but I was gonna see of there was a size discrepancy. Ah, well, there's always the next leaf!

    Josh! Shame on you for jostling your pitchers around! lol, My N. rajah is coming too also after repotting it into a large 1 foot deep pot....we'll see what it does.

    Josh, when you say knocked around too much, exactly how much is to much and how harsh? If I gently move some of the pitchers a few times to accomodate new leaves, would that effect the pitcher too much? Speaking of moving pitchers around, beware of tendrils betweed pots. My N. villosa recently stuck a tendril between two pots, and as it grew, it got cut off... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
    At least there are more where that came from!

    I don't know how much is too much. I've bumped pitchers before (or lifted developing ones to insepct them) without this happening so just an unlucky one I guess!

    I've had more than enough of that sort of pitcher severing thing happening! I need about a 10 ft x 10 ft greenhouse for the plants to be properly spaced so I can access them with ease. Nothing worse than trying to carefully extract a plant from my little jungle for measuring and tidying up and as I'm lifting one plant up two pitchers of different plants have twined together and they rip each other off!

    ...the perils of an overgrown terrarium I guess!

    I know how you feel, I have a good bit of space, but still let the plants rest tendrils in each other's pots. Unfortunately, that villosa went down a bit too low. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] So as I look at my growchamber and think "I love Nepenthes", there's always that "But there in lies the rub" as Shakespere would say about the fact of occasional tendrils in the wrong spot, flourescents losing their intensity without anyone being able to tell (don't go there), etc. Part of the hobby, but fortunately with proper precautions, everything is nice and happy!
