My name is Zach, in case you couldn't tell from my cryptic username, and I am rather new to this whole carnivorous plant thing. What started as a fascination for the unusual has, in five short months, become a full-fledged addiction.
As of right now, my grow list is as follows:
S. 'Dana's Delight'
S. 'Scarlet Belle'
N. spectabilis x burkei
N. gracilis x ampullaria
N. maxima x vogelii
Now I am very new to Nepenthes and Cephalotus, and I would like to make sure I'm doing it right. Right now, I'm keeping both outdoors (Charlotte, NC straddles the boundary between zones 7b and 8a. An average day in the summer has a high of 85-95F and a low of 65-80F.) The nepenthes are being kept in either a mini-greenhouse or a small aquarium, so I can keep the humidity above 60%. The Cephalotus is left out in the open, and I bring it inside at night or whenever it gets too hot outside. Aside from a couple sunburns on the nepenthes' leaves, they are all growing and forming new pitchers. If any of you have recommendations for me, or would just like to share some general care requirements, it would be greatly appreciated.
On a completely different note, through my lurking of this forum, I have noticed that a lot of you also keep fish. Fishkeeping happens to be my other hobby (obsession), and would love to talk fish with anyone willing.
I look forward to hearing from everyone and asking you all annoying novice questions!
