    My Greenhouse, project in progress.

    Well, to start off I would like to say hello to the many familiar faces on here. It's been too long . Secondly I would like to say that I know this should probably go in the greenhouse section, but this greenhouse is completely filled with Nepenthes. Well, there are a few Cephs in there courtesy of Clint, but Neps dominate. Unfortunately I do not have too much time, so this post will be somewhat brief. I just wanted to share the fruits of my hard labor and get back in the forum after having been out for what feels like forever. I have to give a very special thanks to Mike Ludwig and Steve Duggins for their contributions to my greenhouse, as without them I could not have done it. Mike Ludwig was absolutely amazing and donated his entire plant collection to me after he had to move out and tear down his greenhouse. This is the reason my greenhouse is what it is today. Anyway, heres a couple pics of the setup and more to come soon (including pics of the sibuyanensis x Hamata that a couple people have requested - I didn't forget! sorry i've just been super busy lately).

    First, the entire greenhouse from the outside:


    Second, a small section of the greenhouse and a gaggle of neps:


    My pride and joy, compliments of Ludwig (Lowii x Ventricosa):


    And another:


    I have a couple more pics on my iphone that I have been meaning to upload, but time is a factor, so I will try to update this thread soon! Thanks for everyone who has traded/contributed to my collection (you know who you are ).

    Edit: Just noticed that in the 3rd pic you can catch a glimpse of my baby sib x Hamata. It's the first whole plant that you can see in the bottom left corner.
    - Daniel

    Great stuff. I love greenhouse threads. They are probably my favorite thread subject out of all the others. Thanks for the brief introduction to your greenhouse. You'll have to fill us in more when you have time about the temperature management and other finer details. I totally understand, though; if I just built a greenhouse the last place I would be is in front of a computer!

    Looking forward to the grand tour!
