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"
~$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!
