Howdy from Detroit.
Bee growing Neps and other carnivores for about six years now. I grow in a small tent I made out of three grow lights and a plastic four shelf unit.
N. Ventricosa was my first Nep.
Since I've added a Miranda.....
And I received for free several dying plants from the local marijuana supply store, I mean hydroponics store. They had a giant display with al kinds of Neps, butterworts. And North American pitchers. (Donated)
Two months later it was destroyed and the survivors were dying under lights with no moisture. The media they were in was dry.
I took all I could. Got a maxima hybrid, and several others that have barely pitchered yet. Three survived as basal shoots only, while two made it as cutting from vines. So seven Neps right now. As well as two fresh cuttings that look to be surviving so far.
I've got a five year old VFT, Lowes rescue. And a cupped plant from the same supply shop I traded for a Ventricosa cutting.
S. purpurpea, as as one Mexican pincula, and five different sundews....
Pictures as soon as my order from fly traps comes in, and I get everything out of hibernation and repotted.

Hi there, DR. Whereabouts the Detroit area are you? We have a few Michigan members here. Good chance I'm one of the closer ones to you. (Over in Novi)

Thanks! Are there any CP supply shops anywhere near MI? Maybe a two or three hour drive from Detroit?
