    I love droseras. Sarrs are cool if you treat them right... I like neps because they need less sun and they're vines.... I think I'll really like cephs and helis when I get them...

    I wouldn't buy N.X ventrata or a plain, no variant N.ventricosa. I already have huge monster plants of both anyway. I prefer N. ventricosa Red ruffle or squat.

    neps require less light then sarras? I think that statement is a bit to general. I've grown sarras before and Its been my experience that they need less light then neps. I grow my neps under 400 wats of metal halide lighting and non of then get burned. I've been able to grow some sarras under two 9 watt power compacts, and they were weeds. Thats one of the reasons I don't grow sarras as they are weeds. They grow to fast and grow out of control to fast. Same with droseras...

    Wow, miss a few days and threads go out of control. First to defend tobaica


    Actually, not a very nice picture, and the pitchers do get darker, (purple when they start to die). I will have to get another picture posted. 1 climbing stem and five basal shoots with pitchers ranging from < 1" to 5" makes for an interesting contrast.

    Back on topic, (anyone remember the topic?), Mirabilis is pretty unforgiving in low humidity and attracts mealy bugs. I like it because it keeps the mealies away from my other Neps, but don't really care for the pitchers or thin non-waxy leaves. I am not talking about echinostoma or 'John Holmes', those are really cool.
