nepenthes rafflesiana giant

Hello again. After searching for two months on the subject, I have failed in finding anyone with an answer to my inquiry. I am currently trying to find out the main difference in raising a giant form of rafflesiana. I am prepared to buy its own personal green house if needed but from what I have understood so far is that raffles don't mind growing as houseplants. Currently due to horrible shipping it is outside in the best of conditions to help it grow. It is in a lfs and perilite mix. The water used is only collected rain. It came out of shock and has grown about 1/4 inch in a half months time. Is their anything special I need to know for the giants?

You've probably found out by now, but there's no real difference between growing a giant form of rafflesiana and a regular form. Both are lowlands and need to be kept warm.

My understanding -- having spoken to a number of experienced nep growers (hobbyists, mainly) -- is that the lowlanders do seem to want rather high humidity. Might be something to plan ahead for with winter coming.
