    Yeah, I'm about 2 1/2 years from my first one, and now I have over 60 nepnethes, limited solely by space. And I feel like I'm still at the beginning. I haven't produced my first seed yet, as only a male ventricosa has flowered. So that's next on the agenda.

    My first one was a red ventricosa from California Carnivores, which is about an hour from here. I'd already had a minibog outside with vfts and sarras. I knew immediately that neps were my plants.

    it was about a year ago I got my first nep. Of course a Ventrata. Well it died and I got another one. Well it died to. Then I started to look some info up about them and it seems that they shouldnt dry out between waterings :P

    So about 7 months ago I purshased 9 lowland nepenthes as i figured they would be the easiest to keep.
    And I am now addicted to them
    I now have about 20 different species inc hybrids and everything grows and thrives (well almost everything :P )

    Well they kind of do. They grow beutifull and matures just like small children and shows love to us when they thrive.
    If they dont like us they will probably die :P
    Need all the experience I can get...

    Well, I kinda believe they are. You don't really need words to communicate. I believe all life is connected, and when you take care of a lot of plants, you tend to be more connected with that earth/life energy, and it creates a posotive energy. It's a good thing, that's all I know [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] .

    I agree! There's a very positive energy surrounding growing plants. I know I feel it whenever I sit and look at my thriving collection [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]
