Some of you know that I have been searching for some nice size bicals and raffs for my new lowland greenhouse.
Well, I just got this N. raff gigantea yesterday (11/16) and unfortunately upon inspection, it had a couple of broken leaves and in particular a snapped off growth tip The older of the two pitcher is dying off and the other came in with a slit on its side.
The seller thinks that it is a Singapore giant, but I was wondering if you raff fans can verify that or have another ID for it?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Good Growing Everyone ;D
ps. Sorry for the bad pics
Here are some new pics taken this morning (9/18) for size reference:
Hope these help give you folks some ideas on what this raff might be.
If it is a giant I'd say maybe Bau. but sadly it does look a bit more typical to me as well. It's pitcher's would be about atleast twice that size I'd think at that point in it's growth I've got a cutting that has pitchered once working on its second but it's leaf to pitcher ratio is much more distinct to it's giant ansestory. Still can't be completely positive w/o a better scale to things and/or some other opinions I'll see if i can find any literature that says anything.
