    Hello from Portugal, Algarve .

    Hi everyone my name is Marta I. I have this passion for CP's for around 3 years and my first aquisition was a N. Ventrata . Since then I felt in love for Nepenthes, I tried to grow other Cp's (Dioneia, Droseras etc...) but I really genuinely prefer NEPENTHES!!!!
    I have all of them growing in a windowsill setup turned to South, in my appartement, I grow LL HL all together (please do not blame but I can't provide them other place) what I do for LL is give them a lots of indirect Sun and for HL during the night I open the windows for them (Summer) during the winter I put HL next to the window during night time .
    I grow Bical. Ampulla. Albomarginata. Hook. Ventra. Miranda. Truncata "pasian" and Ephippiata .
    Now its winter time here , so the Hl are happy, LL not so much,but giving pitchers anyway although slowly ...
    This forum it's one of the best in my opinion, specially about Nepenthes, it's impressive and sometimes it gets me jeaulous(in a good way of course) I'm a really amateur comparing to you guys but I wanna learn with ya!!!! And I really hope to one day have such beatifull Nepenthes like yours .

    Thank you !!

    (sorry about my English)


    Marta .

    welcome to TF

    Nepenthes are undoubtedly the best of all carnivorous plants (waits for the torch and pitchforks to come out) and I am a huge fan as well. I hope you will gain the confidence to try new speices and hybrids as time goes on

    Myles is right, Nepenthes are undoubtedly the best! ...but stay away from hybrids.
