    Unhappy No More Neps...

    I ran out of space, so i cannot get any more neps. The space is one windowsill. I may be getting more hanging basket hooks, so i may be able to get two more, but that would be it. One i'm definately getting though is Judith Finn By Summer 2010

    Are you stacking smaller neps on top of larger neps yet? Until you do that, you have plenty of space.

    No... but the thing is, it's not a fancy enclosure or anything like a shelf system. It's just a small windowsill, with some pings and droseras there too. When it's summer i keep them outside though. Plus, i moved out my milkweed, so that may give me another 6-inch pot room. But they get too big, so i have enough room for the leafspan for a few years, then i will get some more

    My windowsill is about 6 feet long and extremely bright. Have you ever considered growing under lights? And Jason beat me to the rest.

    If you have any other windowsills in the house with the same exposure, you could try a couple of plants there.

    Well, in the upstairs bathroom is the best lighting, BUT... there is hairspray from my mom everyday. I doubt that's safe for them. And once i tried using grow lights for sarrs, and they didn't work, they made deformed pitchers... and i'd have to get either a new tank or a rack, because my 30-gallon is for utrics

    That's because you can't grow sarracenia under grow lights. You can grow nepenthes under them just fine.
