    Time. I started off with a few plants, divided those, traded them, produced seed, germinated seed, bought new plants, etc. When they all start off small you don't realize exactly how many you have until you write out a list.

    Trades are a big part of a rapidly expanding collection.

    I'm fortunate in having two separate locations... My greenhouse is about 5 miles away at my parents house and houses my nepenthes and some others, while all of my temperate plants are down here with me at my house growing where they get full sun for usually 10 hours a day or so.

    Yeah I'm not "allowed" (dont have the space or money to spend) to have a greenhouse either. I have multiple terrariums though and I've made myself tons of backyard space Once you really get into it, there's no turning back! I only had about 20 until maybe a year ago, then I got really into CPs, and low and behold, in like 10 months my collection has grown to probably 200-some plants including seedlings. Agreed though, people's generosity really helps, as well as germinating your own sarrs. I have a ton of sarr, VFT, drosophyllum, and drosera seeds just ready to be planted!

    Just when you think you have all you need, nice small manageable collection, someone posts a photo of something you cannot live without...again, and again, and again. Then you start making your own from seed or divisions, it never ends. There is no such thing as "my collection is complete." Don't worry, the years will fly by and someday you will have a list to rival all others.

    That's about the size of it. And like Wireman said, it really doesn't look like a lot until you count them.

    For me; I wish to collect and propagate enough specimens to one day play mad scientist and make my own devilish hybrids. At first I thought I only needed a few specimens....but then realized to make beautiful hybrids; one needs diverse and beautiful specimens. And so it begins...it will take a while to realize my goal so I trade and collect what I can for the moment to make me a better grower and be better prepared when the time does arrive.

    My journey has only just begun.
