That's some dedication! Kudos for all the work you put in.
I've been seeing quite a few of my plants coming out of dormancy here in Central Florida. I feel like sometimes I'm drowning trying to keep my tropicals warm in winter and then I hear from members like you and realize I've got it pretty easy.
I cannot wait more for spring !
I have so many plants to ship and so many plants to receive !!
My helis setup just wait to be 'springtered' LOL. And my vfts and sars in my fridg just want to get out of there !!
The 2014 season will be a great one :+)

Same here.......i haven't really gotten many new nepenthes but the ones i am getting are nicer ones for the most part i am working on improving the quality of my grow chamber this year....going to add a swamp cooler for the summer, maybe some LED lighting for next winter as well as making the chamber bigger. Most of the neps I do have are gonna make some good growth this year so after bumping my grow chamber up to 6 feet high in a month or so i expect to see some 6 foot vines later this year .
For the most part my nepenthes wish list isn't that big so pretty soon I will reach end of line there. Only ventures i may make are some toothy ll hybrids if they are attainable and of course some northiana or tiveyi mixes.
My sarracenia however is where i hope to shine. They are going through a total restructuring and i intend to build a set of bleachers to display them with built in trays and water distribution system. Also all those planters will be empty soon enough.....all of my sarracenia save for a couple seedlings are ready for their own 3 gallon pots. I will keep the planters to culture temperate drosera and for smaller sarracenia bc I have decided that making my own sarracenia hybrids is something i want to do next year BUT it will be on a severely reduced capacity next year bc basically all i can do is mix hybrids together BUT with any luck I will start to acquire some genetic material soon so hopefully I can get serious about it in the future.
