    Hi Dustin
    Ive got a sibuy on order as i think its a wicked plant and cant wait to grow it,i was going to grow it as an intermediate,what conditions do you grow yours in?
    Ive always fancied growing Rajah but have never got round to it do you find that its fairly easy to grow?is it easy when young but does it get more demanding as it gets older.
    Im also getting Bongso and ramispina,do you grow these?

    Bye for now julian

    Hey julian, I grow my N. sibuyanensis in highland coniditons lows can reach into the mid 40's (5-8C) at night and up to 70-80 (25C+) in the daytime. It recieves daily timed misting overhead and is kept cool in the day by the use of a swamp cooler.

    N. rajah is not too difficult contrary to the popular belife but it must be given a strict set of conditions. Temperature is one of them, day time can go as high for the sibuyanensis and the same for night time. I have found it needs a big pot to grow well! I have mine in a 1 gallon size nursury pot (I belive that's 4 liters or more in metric/) Mine got recently attacked by earthworms but I repotted and waterlogged the new pot and soil to drown any remaining pests. Now it has put out this wonderful pitcher for me.....I've waited since May 03 to see any pitchers on this plant due to the worm attack and climatical factors probably. So far, its just got bigger in the new pot......every leaf is noticably larger in surface area. Pitchers should be topping off at around 13cm (5inches tall sometime soon!

    I grow N. carunculata/bongso whatever it is yes and it recieves the same conditions as the rajah, sib, etc. I do not gorw N. ramispina yet however.

    Hi Dustin
    Thanx for the info i shall put this in to practice.I think Rajah
    will have to be given a go in the future thats for sure.
    Ive also after reading posts on here think that if the pitchers
    are allowed to reach the soil or rest on LFS that they tend to be bigger,what do you think?
    Thanx again Dustin
    bye for now julian

    I have had much better luck if the pitchers do rest on some surface while forming. I had one pitcher no form until it did rest on the ground. Which seems quite logical to me....I mean the plan has primarily ground pitchers in the wild!

    Hi Dustin,

    so I won't imagine what you call a difficult plant... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Wasn't the N. rajah the only plant of your collection affected by earthworms - strange coincidence.

    Great pictures and plants as always!

    Cheers Joachim
