    Jim,

    While I do not use planter boxes for my Neps I have used/am using them for many other plants. I have a 45cm one with Sarr seedlings in it and I used to have a 120cm one that was my "microbog" filled with VFTs, filiformis clones and a few small S. rosea. Of course those ended up in the real bog so now I need to find something to do with the 120 planter... maybe use it for my U. alpina since it seems willing to grow to obscene proportions...

    U. alpina.... my Achilles heel! I have conquered Darlingtonia and D. adelae flowering and a few other things, but can't get the hang of the alpina.

    What I like about these planters is that they can sit at a window and they have that drainage collector bottom piece so that the Neps don't actually sit in water, like an open tray set up.

    FWIW, during the winter months I grow 90% of me Neps in windowsills on the tray system. I top water when the media looks liek it needs it, let the water drain out into the tray and just leave it there. I do tend to use large pots (15cm plants in minimum 15cm pots) so that might make a small difference.

    That's comforting. I will not miss cleaning up soil media from the floor and trying to salvage plants and cuttings!
