    Welcome!

    I just moved from SLC, UT last year and grew both Neps and Sar's outside, to be honest I didn't have that much of a problem, but they were around a lot of grass and water, so the humidty around the area was probably a bit higher, if you have any questions feel free to ask, as a former Utah man and a grower for many years I may have some use in me

    Hi xantius.

    I live south of SLC myself, just down the road from you in Herriman. I originally got into this hobby a couple years back by buying one lone VFT and then going online to learn how to take care of it. And to this day my collection keeps growing!

    I grow many VFTS and Sarracenia outside here and they do great. But I put them into the garage for the winter. This is actually my first winter here since having started this hobby, I lived in Houston for a couple years and that's where I started my collection.

    I also have a growrack with lights on timers and it is humidified. In this I keep highland nepenthes, tropical sundews, utrics, cephalotus, and heliamphora. It is a bit of upkeep but I find it worth it. I've had most of these for under two years, so I'm still learning.

    Anyway, welcome!

    Welcome!

    Im in CO, during the summer we have around 13-20% humidity, so pretty dry and it gets pretty toasty here. I grew VFTs and some Sarrs last summer and they did fabulously (just keep em watered and the squirrels out of them ).

    My problem is with my d. adelae, but it does well enough that its still kicking
