    Where would be your ideal CP growing location

    If you were able to pick any where in the US to live based strictly on ease of growing the largest amount of CP species, where would it be?

    I am going to be finishing my electrician apprentiship in about a year, and I have decided that I am tired of the Oregon coast. I really enjoy the outdoors and unless you like wearing rain gear alot, it is hard to spend much time outside. I have a lot of requirements for where I want to move my family, but I am just curious where the "ideal" CP home would be.

    Probably Kulamauimans location, tropical but in the mountains so my HL Neps, utrics and helis could just be left outside year round and I could just go out and weed, feed and water them when I felt like it. If i win the lottery I'm gonna be Mach's neighbor!

    Having come from Boston with its harsh winters and too hot summers, I think I have it almost perfect here in Santa Barbara. The temps are usually 65-75 day and 50-55 night with some dips into the mid 40's and only very occasionally into the 30's. We get about 300 days of sun a year and where I live there is almost always a nice ocean fog that rolls in and lightly dusts everything with condensation every morning and almost nightly. Especially this time of year. It's supposedly 80% RH today and usually is above 60% although there are "sundowner" winds that blow hot air from the desert on some (very infrequent) summer nights that drop the RH to almost 0% and bring temperatures of close to 100 degrees. Otherwise it is almost the perfect place to grow high land nepenthes. Ironically I still have yet o relocate my plants to my porch! :P
    Too weird to live, too rare to die.
