    I'm rooting for macrophylla and truncata!

    Breathtaking plant Jeremiah! How lond did it take to get that large? I'm very envious!
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Brilliant plant & pitcher Jeremiah [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    How old is the plant? Are all the pitchers supported? And does the plant produce basal growth?
    My largest rajah is still producing small pitchers in comparision to yours. But has tended to produce loads of basal growth which I am gradually removing and potting up.
    Do you repot your plant or has it been in that container some time?

    Loads of questions [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    cheers

    Beautiful Jeremiah! Tell me...do you have a greenhouse or what system do you use to keep it cooled to the right temps?

    Hello

    Yeah it may not be the biggest but how can you beat it for shear color and size.

    Don't N. macrophylla have pitchers that stay at about 28cm, the really big one is N. edwardsiana that will get over 50cm.

    "How old is the plant?"
    I got the plant from the CP Jungle on 9-19-2002 and it was 3 7/8 inches across with 7/8 inch pitchers. So it has really been a fast growing plant.

    " Are all the pitchers supported?"
    Yes all the pitchers I have ever had with this plant have been supported with the moss and soil. Its newest leaf will have a pitcher hanging over that edge of the pot so it will be interesting to see if it looks different.

    I do have another N. rajah that is not quiet as big, it is in a gallon pot that has pitchers that hang over and they look very different than the ones that are supported by the pot.

    " And does the plant produce basal growth?"
    Yeah it does it has one that is about 5 to 7 inches across right now. I had been cutting them off and trading them.

    " Do you repot your plant or has it been in that container some time?"
    It has been in the 16" pot for about a year now, when I first go it I put it in a 5" pot and just gradually moved it into a lager pot I don't know what I'm going to do now that is has about out grown this pot as well.

    " Tell me...do you have a greenhouse or what system do you use to keep it cooled to the right temps?"

    I had been growing it in a freezer that I set up to cool it to about 40 F every nigh but it out grew it and I finished a highland greenhouse last September. During the winter it is not a problem cooling it at night and ever on the hottest days here it will still get to 60F at night so I don't think that will be a problem. I also built a indo lowland grow chamber that I move all me lowland Nepenthes into during the winter, I just moved them back into the lowland greenhouse yesterday.

    Thanks for all the nice comments and let me know if you have any more questions.

    I will try to get a photo of the whole plant and maybe some of my other N. rajah tomorrow.

    thanks
    -Jeremiah-
