Awesome Rajah. Good that you have a highland farm. If I recall correctly, you have a terrarium using aquarium chiller and humidifier. In there, was lowii, villosa and rajah. How did it do for the plants? Was it working? Though, I could have mistaken as it was quite some time ago.

Woah, very impressive! Nice work there raising it that big. Whatever hybrid you make with that, I'm sure it will look amazing.

Hi,brother,
Veitchii and Rajah has very similar wide peristome, so the chance of getting something similar to either parent are high rather than something with more special feature...

I can think of a few super nice neps to breed with rajah, of course not all are possible

Northiana, Veitchii Bario, Rafflesiana Giant, Lowii, Hamata, EP's Merriliana, Truncata 'King Of Spades' from BE, Truncata 'wide peristome' from EP.

If we cross campanulata, that'll be interesting. Or clipeata? Or eymae? I wonder if crossed with ampullaria, do we get a super large ampullaria?

Last time I use to plant highland nep in terrarium, but given up because of the requirement for temperature and humidity that caused lot of extra work and also expensive electricity bill ..so..must stop it...

Unfortunately both my truncata and merilliana are too small to flower... it would be a real shame if your rajah could not be pollinated with a giant lowlander.
