nice, for a reason that I like rafflesiana apart from it's great difference between lower and upper pitcher, it is those "tooth" of it's peristome, a good substitute to those nice highland nep with tooth that can't grow well in my place

Lovely rich colour tones. And glossy too. Any special feeding/fertiliser? My pitchers seemed to lose the gloss and tone as the plant gets older.
