    Tony, You mentioned "one little change in the environment": what typically might that change be?
    (Can't grow rajah down here, but find merrilliana to be like that: all of a sudden, it bursts forward in size)

    Good question and I am still trying to sort that out. N. rajah has been one that has given me headaches. They grow fine but getting an increase in size is another story. Maybe they just have to reach a critical mass then jump forward. Some things I have found with this species..

    They are heavy feeders and feeding makes a huge difference.
    One of the few I would overpot... They have huge rootsystems and respond to more space.
    They seem to like a less chunky mix and a more 'soil' like composition.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hello

    swords
    I was off just a hare it is 16 3/4 inches

    fly-catchers
    Yes it does produce a lot of basal growing points the I just cut off a 7 inch one yesterday. I cut them all off when they has 4 or more leafs. I want all the growth to go to the main plant. The plant I got from Tony has made way more basal shoots. The plant it the photo was just starting the make them.

    thanks for you help Tony. Are there seed grown N. rajah still being sold?

    Jeremiah, I have been told by some growers that N. rajah grows best if the nightly temperature falls below 55 degrees. The cold night triggers pitcher growth, and plant growth, along with being gluttonous pigs. This information should be looked into I think. I no longer grow neps. I have no more room for that purpose.
