    I hate to say this but borneo exotics was way better. The flavas and the Heliamphora are good but all the other stuff is fairly garden variety. Maybe I like the other because it was stuffed with plants.

    Bah... I was expecting it to be a lot cooler. It looks too "this species goes here, this species goes here" for me... way too artificial. I'm not even 1/3rd as impressed with it as the Borneo one.

    Very nice. From my perspective, this is a sharp looking display, and nice in that it is not representative of just one genus. But after backtracking to the thread with the Borneo pics, I would not want to call this one! I'm a Sarracenia guy, but I know which display the Nep lovers will favor. Thanks for the pics, Brooks!

    I'm an everything guy and go at what I want when it strikes me and this one definatly need quite a few more plants packed in. JBL have you ever been to ABG if so you will know what I mean when I say the Sarrs are way to sinplified. ABG has some sarr var. and hybrids that would knock the socks off all but those two S.flava 'red tube' (sorry 'bout that I can't yet spell the var.)
