  Sabah Highlands Pitcher Plant (Nepenthes rajah) Nepenthes rajah, commonly known as the Sabah Highlands Pitcher Plant, is an insectivorous plant species belonging to the Nepenthaceae Family. The plant is native to Mount Kinabalu, Mount Tambuyukon in Malaysia. The plant grows on serpentine substrates in loose soil with seeping ground water.   The Mesilau entrance is at a higher elevation than the main gate, high enough to be just below the prime growing sites for Kinabalu's remarkable pitcher plants. This was my first visit to Mesilau, and I had a specific botanical goal: Nepenthes rajah, both by size and by name the king of the pitcher plants.
