    A few of my Plants

    I guess this will be my first post here so I figured I would Post a few pictures of some of my Nepths.
    [Click all pictures for full size.]

    N. Caesar - [Merrilliana X Truncata]
    This is its First Pitcher since I got it.


    This one is cool, you can see the fluids forming inside the pitcher.


    N. Puna - [Maxima x (Tobiaca x Talangensis)]




    N. Talangensis


    N. Rajah
    This is its first pitcher, took about 3 months to grow but it is finaly starting to pop out pitchers pretty fast.


    N. Jacquelinae


    And Finally

    N. Villosa


    This addiction is getting our of hand

    Very nice!
    How will we deal with two members with "pyro" as part of their username?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Thanks!

    I live in Connecticut so it is pretty easy to give them the night temps they like (55-65F), when night rolls around I open my window behind the rack and it cools everything down. I grow all of my Nepenthes on a grow rack with out a terrarium, witch i have tried a few times but it never really seemed to make much of a difference. Day temps reach about 75-80F and the humidity can range from 50%-80% depending on the time of the day.

    On the bottom picture you can see the thermostat + hydrometer for the bottom shelf.

    Here is the setup I grow everything on:

    I just water daily, I do put a live sphagnum topping on pretty much all of my plants though. I only empty the black trays below the pots every few weeks so after one or two waterings it starts to collect.
