    Coming out of Retirement!!

    Yep, it's true.. I landed my dream job. Turns out one of my local hydroponic shops has been interested in nepenthes for awhile now. And they have offered me:

    ~1 corner of the store for an "in-house nepenthes exhibit"
    ~$9/hr.
    ~$200-$400 budget to spend on 12 neps
    ~an open in-house policy for a plant setup & supplies (for the exhibit)
    ~and 2 (paid) unscheduled days a week to come in and care for the plants

    It doesn't get any better than this!

    Very cool Mass. Congrats! You'll have to post some pics of the setup once it is up and running.

    Congratulations. Are you going to grow the Nepenthes in a hydroponics system?

    No hydroponics I don't think.. I don't know enough about it to put the company's money on the line with setup like that. I think I'm going to go with one of the large grow tents and some T5's.. misting system, fans, the works.

    That is awesome! Congratulations, mass!

    Is the $200-400 budget for just your plants, or the whole set up?
