Is it worth it to buy a N. rajah for $20 even if I need to grow it in intermediate conditions (68 night 70 day in winter/74 day 70 night in summer)?

$20 is exceptional for a rajah! If you have the money for it, definitely consider giving it a try. I would start by putting it right up next to the windowsill just to get as much of of a drop as possible. Frozen water bottles & ice packs can also get a good drop. You can slowly acclimate to normal temps over time.

I actually have a room that we let get down to 50-55ish so I can try to move it in there. The problem is it is only has those temps in winter. I can try to aclimate it to warmer temps. I could also get size small for $26. $20 is for xs

The place who offered me these also offered me
H. sarracenioides for $20
N. minima x lowii for $15
N. argentii for $22
Dionaea m. "Crusader" for $30
A sarr that seems cool: S. x "Timothy King" x leucophylla "Hot Pink" splinter
A large Cephalotus "Holland Clone" for $16
There are other things too!

So much stuff but it costs so much to get it all!

I'd say snag the Ceph for that price ... especially if it is a good size. Intermediate temp neps are often the more adaptable ones to a home environment. For that price, the rajah could be worth experimenting with.

Alright, I'll try to get it tomorrow when my dad helps me fix my lights. What is unique about that ceph clone? I googled pics and it looks fairly normal to me.

Giardino's prices are excellent; just a heads up- plants will definitely be small, and I'm pretty sure you have to provide your own APHIS permits for importing from them.

Oh, I went all of the way through the shipping section and to the payment part of checking out and it never mentioned permits :( . I also don't see anything on their website on shipping to the US. You'd think they'd mention that somewhere.

Yeah, I’m not sure if US shipping is even an option publicly listed on their website… you’re going to have to supply your own APHIS permits for the vast majority of international sellers who even offer US shipping, with the exception of AW and (now apparently) Diflora. The APHIS permits required by the importer are unrelated to the phyto needed by the nursery.

I contacted them earlier just to make sure. I'm still waiting for a reply. US shipping is an option on their website. You can select a country to ship to. I guess we'll see!

Just seemed to be a good price if it is not a small Ceph. Didn't realize the was out of country. Importing adds a lot to the overall price

Can’t miss that DARLINGTONIA CALIFORNICA "GREEN FORM" for only 19.00! I mean that’s worth way more than what his price is!

I’m thinking of doing a group order from him in the spring actually. Hopefully it works out!

Giardino’s “Green Form” is not ‘Othello’; unlike some other CP cultivars, the ‘Othello’ designation applies to any antho-free cobra, not a specific clone. While Giardino’s is very green, it’s not anthocyanin-free (look at the developing leaves in the center of the growing point).
