i've decided to look for a CP that doesn't need a winter dormancy period (as he vft's will be in the fridge roughly this time next year) and nepenthes seemed like a good option... my mum's looking around for christmas gift ideas and i *subtly* dropped a hint for a PFT giftcard
would a rafflesiana or ventricosa be easy to grow? i was thinking of getting the PFT 1.5 gal round terrarium and their soil, and mixing in some orchid bark as i've seen some sites reccommend. lighting wouldn't be a problem, i tend to get very creative on a limited budget...
also, odd side question... how IS nepenthes pronounced? is it NEP-en-thees, ne-PEN-thees, or some other combination i haven't figured out? i was never very good with latin names!!!
