    Hey all,
    Long time no see. 9 months ago i got out of growing neps because of moving and just new interests and friends, and now i want to get back into it as a side hobby. I live in colorado and in the summer the temperature is great for neps, its the humidity and the winters that i am afraid of. Should I grow in a terrarium... a small green house? if so is the soil still best with 90%sphagnum and 10% of basalt or watever those small white poris rocks are? any growing tips or terrarium ideas are greatly apreciated...

    p.s. I can also build about anything for these ... so ya ummm
    i guess im glad to be back
    I love nepenthes

    never online? i see him on most everyday. he doesnt post much but he is here. i dont have a greenhouse set up so i cant really help yah. your best bet really is to get ahold of someone fairly local that has one set up so they can tell yah what works. a peron with a greenhouse in AZ has very different problems from someone with one in New York. im growing all of mine in out basement. most of the cost with a greenhouse is heating cooling and humidifying whhich is why i dont have one. i can easily afford the greenhouse but to keep it up and running with back up generators for when lightning kills the power in 100 degee heat or snow pulls down lines when its 20 below. makes more sence to me to grow my few in the basement under lights. after one of the girls is out of highschool though we plan on adding a sun room to the back of the house, at that point i might add a small built in green house to house hardier species and hybrids but i have a feeling anything very delicate will prolly always reside in my basement.
