    Thanks everyone

    Mass: of course! Ill try and take pics of it tomorrow since I have the day off. It's actually more of a shade house than a greenhouse, but we still call them greenhouses here. Ill also take pics of the plants as well, but there really isn't too many anymore. In its glory days (before college years) the entire thing was full of nepenthes. I could barely walk around. Now I just have a handful, which I hope to remedy soon. Hmmm maybe I can find pictures from back then too. I'll check.

    Ok, per request, here is the greenhouse. I tried to find pictures from back in its glory days, but couldn't find them anywhere, so these will have to do.
    I do have to appologize though, the greenhouse is quite negelected right now, so its not too impressive.

    This is the outside. It was built over a dogrun (which is why there is a brick area with a chainlink fence all the way around). The dog run is on the left and on the right is another area as well (the turtle cage is blocking that area now). On the fence I have some orchids and Spanish moss growing.


    This is the inside of the right hand side of the green house. There's a grow bench and PVC pipes above for my nepenthes to hang from. All the greenhouse is watered by overhead sprinkler.


    This is the inside of left hand side in the dogrun. Its very rundown from years of negelect. These are my last remaining plants. Before I had benches all along every wall and each was covered in nepenthes, so was above where they would hang from the rafters. I make myself sad just thinking about it.


    LOL anyway, hope you guys enjoyed! I've been having more and more free time so hopefully all my collection and greenhouse will get back up to speed soon and I'll post better pictures

    I see in the wide angle shot that you had a huge truncata as well...Very nice! Why the downsize in plants, if I may ask?

    Edit: ..or just neglect out of other priorities, as you seem to hint at?

    It unfortunately wasn't a downsize on purpose. Life and college got the best of me and slowly but surely each one died on me over a course of about 10 years. The truncata was a very nice size one. I had him for about 5 years. I had two of them that size acutally, one male and one female.

    Mass: Yup, pretty lucky to only need a shadehouse. It does come with its benefits, but also its downsides. I can't grow anything that needs dormancy or cool temps.
