    That is OK Martin I just thought it would get large over 3-4 years. 100 years!! That can live out human life! Old plants in the wild!

    Tony what is the largest pitcher you have ever had on Rajah?(In inches please) Also if it does grow (even if I get it) what rate will it grow at? As fast as Merrilliana? Speaking of Merriliana how long will it take to get it's large pitchers? As long as Rajah? Thanks,I love talking about Nepenthes! Nep.G.

    Forgot to mention I have LOTS of pesky tourists in the summer here in Alexandria Bay NY.The big attaration usually is Boldt Castle. I'd say to a drunken one. "Hey you" Yeah" "Come here for a second sir." He walks in and I shove him in the pitcher! Nep.G.

    I just read that apparently N. Rajah is a surface rooting plant, meaning it doesn't usually put it's roots deep into the media.

    A suggestion made in the care tips I was reading said to put the plant in a shallow wide tray, so that it can spread it's roots out, and that perhaps this assist it in growing larger...

    That being said, i wouldn't go too shallow, as it will dry out faster, if you go this method, keep the tray deep, so it holds more moisture.
