    Back on CP train!

    Hey everybody,

    And greetings from Pennsylvania! I've been growing CP's since I was 10 or so, but I'm just getting back into growing carnivorous plants after going through 4 years of college ( which made it almost impossible to care for my plants... ) I'm pretty fixated on growing nepenthes at the moment, with a small collection that I keep in a dog pen on my porch during the active growing season.
    I joined this forum to learn more from other experienced growers. I like the idea of having a community where growers can bounce information off of each other, and enhance everyone's knowledge on the cultivation of their plants. There is always room for improvement in a system and I plan on expanding and learning as much as I can in the coming years.

    Your friend in the farmlands,
    LifeOnMars?

    Well, I mostly keep intermediate and some highland species of nepenthes outside from spring into summer. I pick a place that has morning sunlight then diffused light in the afternoon (on the east side of a shade tree works best). Temperatures are usually around 80 during the day and 55 to 60 at night. During the winter I usually bring them in on a sunny windowsill where they usually stop growing for about a month when light and humidity levels get really low. This year though I plan on either buying an indoor greenhouse kit or designing my own, because I'm collecting some more difficult species these days.

    Here is the N. lowii x campanulata that I had growing under these conditions

    I'll post some more recent pics tomorrow. (not of the N. lowii x campanulata though... passed away about 2 years ago in an early frost then following squirrel destruction)
    Until then!
