    Greetings from South Africa

    Hi All

    I'm based in South Africa (deep deep South). I am fairly new to nep cultivation. Started last year with some of the easier specimens and I am now looking to buy my first greenhouse to take the addiction to the next level. Nepenthes are becoming an addiction - love those damn plants.

    looking forward to sharing my experiences (when there is something worth sharing ) and to learn from some of the masters out there.

    Regards
    Mike

    Hi thanks for the warm welcome. I'm focusing on highlands for the moment. Conditions favour them more where I live.

    Welcome to TerraForums! I think your addiction already HAS progressed to the next level: you've come to the forums! Oh, also, you'll definitely get some expert opinions; just surf over to the Tropical Pitcher Plants (Nepenthes) thread.

    Welcome to TF! There are several Nepenthes growers I know of that live in the South Africa region, some even actively on this forum! I'm sure they could help you out with some growing tips for your region .


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
