Your PM box is full. Please send money shipping details sometime this week. I will be leaving the state for work on Sunday so I would like to get them out this week or you'll have to wait till mid November
Nepenthes and Drosera for new members, Begonia for anyone.
Thanks AnIsleAteHer for the healthy plants! Here's a picture of the Nepenthes x ventrata (correct nomenclature?) freshly settled in a new pot. It's in a clear orchid pot which is tucked inside a metal planter. The planter has about 2 inches of river rock lining the bottom to raise the pot up (I have an over-waterer in the house who waters my plants when I'm away). I lined the bottom inch of the clear pot with LFS and then filled in with the pre-rinsed mix from our local carnivorous plant nursery which has equal parts sphagnum peat moss, perlite, fir bark and sand (not play sand).
I topped the pot with just under an inch of silica sand (attempting) to discourage fungus gnats from laying eggs in the soil. I plan on keeping the plant indoors because it's already cold outside at 50F (74% humidity at 1:45pm, can you tell I live in rainy Washington state, USA?! lol).
I'll post a picture of the D. capensis in its new pot later, I'm a little behind on picture taking. You were right though, less than a week and it's got its dew back!
Advice, please: would upstairs or downstairs be better for the Nepenthes x ventrata? Temps/RH below.
Upstairs day 65-78F, 40-55 RH
Upstairs night 50-65F, 55-60 RH
Downstairs day 50-65F, 55-60 RH
Downstairs night 40-55, 58-68 RH

Looking good =]
It would do fine in either location IMO. It might grow a little faster with higher temps so upstairs could be better. Its original conditions were 55-70 temps with about 60-70 RH
