    A Cheapskate's Attempt to Grow IPs in Stockton, CA

    Current official weather conditions:
    Temperature: 101 deg F (actual temperature is probably lower because of trees and grass and shade)
    Relative Humidity: 13% (actual humidity is probably higher)

    Nepenthes receive approximately 2 hours of direct sunlight in the afternoon. I mainly water Nepenthes with tap water. This is their first year growing outdoors.


    N. reinwardtiana, N. x'Gentle', N. truncata


    N. albomarginata, N. maxima 'Poso', N. 'Miranda', N. x'Ventrata'

    Sarracenia receive approximately 4 hours of direct sunlight and 4 hours of filtered sunlight. I also water them mainly with tap water with occasional flushing using reverse osmosis water.


    S. flava, S. minor, S. leucophylla, S. 'Cobra Nest', S. 'Scarlet Belle', some hybrids

    The Nepenthes continue to make pitchers since being put outdoors in March. They didn't pitcher much indoors at 50% relative humidity because of low lighting.

    I don't think you'll have any trouble, unless you're aiming for those rare plants.

    I don't know. If I see any on sale (unknowns that are probably N. 'Ventrata' for approximately $1) at local stores, I might buy them. For other species/hybrids/cultivars (usually from online stores), I might buy them if the (total price + shipping) divided by the number of plants purchased is 5$, I might buy them. For me, I buy plants when I think the price is cheap enough and most of those plants also happen to be fairly easy to grow.
