    Using proper punctuation is best when making fun of someone. Makes you look more like a troll if you don't know where to put a question mark.

    So what do you grow, Garren? We'd love to see pictures, too.

    Got to say it alex, You probably just taught me the greatest thing of owning neps: Acclaimatising them before doing any crap to them.

    Sheesh! How could I forget? They were all in bags when I got them...almost a week or so in them during transport...humidity is peaked at like 100% in there. I take them out...put them in pots and a enclousure where humidity is like 60% - 80%. No wonder they are in shock

    DAMN!

    Hi Glider14;

    you have a nice selection of species and hybrids. I would recommend to give them as much LIGHT as you can, fertilize with an orchid fertilizer once every month at least, and provide them with as much humidity as you can (this does not imply overwatering them).

    Good Luck

    Gus

    You do have a nice cp collection,
    I hope to get a nice one up fast.
    That guy just wants to cause problems
    and is jealous that is what is most likely.
    I would back off Garren before you get PMed
    by an admin ,trust me lots of people are
    on CPUK and other large forums and will tell the
    admins about you.

    Two weeks. To early to say if they will form pitchers. Have you grown Highland nepenthe before?. Tendrils will blacken soon, Give them time. Starting on hardish highland specie is a bad move. Have you pictures of your grow house?.
