    Thanks, and welcome back to the hobby! I bought these:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0761KKJGQ/

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016CZMOK0/

    And not necessarily this brand, but the same wattage/spectrum 100watt equiv/daylight with cheap metal bells around them. This stuff you can probably get from Home Depot pretty cheaply
    https://www.amazon.com/Sylvania-2635...502504&sr=8-13

    here's the outside stuff -
    I grabbed shots of my veggie garden how it's coming along!








    bare dirt where I should have parsley. Come on parsley, where are you??


    Corn, beans and squash... and eggplant. Of course suddenly we're supposed to have a cold wave and have 48F at night next weekend. I'm covering everything with bubblewrap and hoping for the best :O


    This is either tomatillo or ground cherry...


    ...because this is either ground cherry or tomatillo


    Ok so I thought the seeds off of really tasty strawberries I had in San Diego last year were sterile so I planted over them in my seedling trays with Dieghito Jalapenos - nope :O suddenly little leaves were sprouting up in the peppers and I thought it was the lemon balm invading at first but no, the tasty medium sized red strawberries are popped! I hope they survive my brutal ripping out from when I thought they were lemon balm


    Ok excuse the focus not being on the pitcher but I was excited to finally show off my first opened up pitcher of the year! Dark veined S.flava ornata semi-dwarf! It had a bloom but the squirrels that I assume are ripping up my sunflowers also pulled the bloom off this


    One of the sunflowers I put inside the deer fencing to keep at least 2 sunflowers unharmed from the critters. Inside started so they came up a little wobbly so I'm attempting to stake them straight while they're still supple


    I've got my potatoes set up to chit in my cellar - I was expecting them to already have little sprouts up when I got them but... fine. I can wait. I guess. The white ones are in the lead!


    Rhubarb, from seed. I'm starting more because I've decided the 3 that I already have just isn't enough...


    The ladybugs have voted my garden a great place to set up shop



    I want to show off the nice big Thistles I've got in my yard



    I hope they're protecting the sunflowers I planted from the horrible squirrels that keep digging them up and decapitating them

    A whole row of sunflowers if the dang varmints stop ripping them up




    I planted the supposedly good companion flowers in the veggie beds to try to help with the bugs situation - zinnias and marigolds and nasturtiums all over the place. Oh and calendula too


    Strawberry glamour shots




    Those alpine pineapple strawberries I started from seed


    D.multifida's been out since I kicked the Sarras, vfts and rhubarb out too. When we had that surprise frost a couple weeks ago all its leaves died back but then it resprouted again.


    S.umlautiana my second open pitcher of the year! I fed it a caterpillar already. The flava got the beetle grubs I found while I was digging out holes for the sunflowers in the sod


    Vfts mainly


    Nasturtium - I ordered a little later in the season so all I could find for a decent price was dwarf nasturtium so that's what I'll be growing!


    Hey so my S.minor antho free still hasn't popped up. Is it dead? does it usually take a while to come up in the spring? Help! Everybody else is showing signs of life already including an okee giant minor so I know it's not a minor thing.

    And some nice flowers around the yard that are popping up this year


    There was a nice yellow rose too but I wasn't quick enough to get its pic


    Ok, this was a big post!

    Nice! I have stenocereus, haageocereus, echinopsis/trichocereus/lobivia (same thing), melocactus, echinofossulocactus, and a few arrojadoa cacti seedlings. Nice nepenthes! I'm hoping to see uppers on my larger glabrata soon

    You're just not doing enough. Surely, you can rescue a couple of Home Despot Nepenthes mutts, a capensis or two, to round out that paltry collection. Looks too, like a varmint has invaded your house . . .

    Nice lookin garden!! Your strawberries look really happy! We have harvested a few but its been so cool around here that everything is slow. Heck usually my lettuce is ready to bolt by now but this year its barely big enough to harvest yet. Im looking forward to seeing your garden grow.

    I found this interesting plant growing in my rhubarb patch this morning. Seems to be some sort of scaly root vegetable - must be a rutabaga

    It's about time I updated here - I finally took some halfway decent pics, but some of these are a little old because I haven't gotten Imgur to work for a little while now. So I've uploaded here. The forum wants a lot of them to be sideways though so... enjoy the neck stretches after a long day behind a computer, staring into the void:

    Oops I bought a new plant. Not only is it a new plant, but an expensive new plant, and also a cross of a couple plants I don't particularly like on their own, lowii x tentaculata, that actually comes together to form a pretty nice plant. As a bonus, it's a naturally occuring hybrid from what I've read.
    Pics post!-img_9511-jpg

    Here's the only N.tentaculata I actually like - the now-defunct Ft Bragg Hortus Botanicus maroon spotted clone. Keep your eyes peeled in the NASC for this one if it roots!
    Pics post!-img_9538-jpg

    N.aristolochioides lower that looks like a nice juicy strawberry. Also keep your eyes peeled on NASC for this one
    Pics post!-img_9540-jpg

    N.hamata x platychila lower. You're going to find him on the NASC too
    Pics post!-img_9541-jpg

    Variegated ficus elastica finally chugging along again after overcoming the shock of the cross-country move, growing like the weed it is!
    Pics post!-img_9543-jpg

    A couple pitchers off of Simon, my ventricosa x hamata. He bifurcates sometimes which is totally wild and I'm glad I picked him out of all the plants I had gotten (back in the day I got a handful of vent x hammies and picked just one to keep). If the cuttings from him root, you'll be seeing him on NASC too!
    Pics post!-img_9514-jpg

    Pics post!-img_9516-jpg

    Pics post!-img_9517-jpg

    Four of my ferns in my very small collection of ferns. I've got that rabbits-foot looking fern I got from Exo back in the day lurking in my Nep pots too. I think three are weeds from D'amato's shops' Nep collection.
    Pics post!-img_9522-jpg

    Pics post!-img_9524-jpg

    Pics post!-img_9519-jpg

    Pics post!-img_9525-jpg
    (this last one is really supposed to be a U.alpina, which I'm doing terribly at, but the nice dark ribbed maidenhair fern they sell at D'Amato's shop is coming up as a volunteer in the pot!)

    N.robcantleyii from the original SG release. She always makes stupid little lids, because somehow I can't grow Phillipine species well if at all for the life of me.
    Pics post!-img_9531-jpg

    N. xBriggsiana 'Peter D'Amato'. Back in the day I got about a meter of this and another named briggsiana cross - I lost a good 8-12 cuttings I had taken of it all except for this one, so it's a survivor! I took cuttings of it too, so if it roots, once again keep your eyes peeled for NASC!
    Pics post!-img_9528-jpg

    N. pulchra lower. Bought it from Wistuba's shop, almost a year ago. I guess the lowers look like every other spotty or striped Nep...
    Pics post!-img_9536-jpg

    N. xSong of Melancholy
    Pics post!-img_9518-jpg

    Commonly called 'Wandering Jew' vine, blooming. I didn't even know they bloomed like this. Nice!
    Pics post!-img_9520-jpg

    N.spathulata x hamata. Ok, same-ish sort of cross as Simon but entirely lacking the teeth. This plant is a disappointment, and it's exactly the reason you buy really-well picked clones from BE instead of seedgrown releases in case you don't want to be underwhelmed. I don't know if this is a feature of spathulata mixes or if I just got a terrible plant lol... at least it's a female. So I'm making some seed - I think I crossed her 3 blooms (it's been a rough year for the Neps) with hamata x platychila pollen. We'll see what happens.
    Pics post!-img_9527-jpg

    Another two expensive 'oopses'. N.spathulata x diabolica. Hopefully not a disappointment.
    Pics post!-img_9512-jpg

    ...and a red spathulata. Because the brown peristome on the circulating green clones is just not my cup of tea.
    Pics post!-img_9513-jpg

    N.campanulata x (spectabilis x talangensis). Campy
    Pics post!-img_9529-jpg

    N.ventricosa x xTrusmadiensis (B). It was hitting the ceiling already. It's got at least 6 growth points on it. So I cut it back! Keep your eyes peeled on the NASC if the whole meter of vines worth of cuttings root!!
    Pics post!-img_9530-jpg

    N.gracilis. It's a nice green one. Thanks to Ed at CSUF! It's finally growing - I thought I had lost the whole plant because the original cutting died back but luckily the basals have taken off. I think I need to go through and repot a bunch of things soon, and on the list is the N.vent Madja-as, lingulata, boschiana, this gracilis, sibuyanensis, vogelli, and eustachya x tenuis are on the list. The N.Gaya was on the list but i just repotted it today because I had some potting mix left over after getting something new in a pot.
    Pics post!-img_9533-jpg

    N.tenuis. Guess who else is on the shortlist for NASC candidates
    Pics post!-img_9534-jpg

    N.thorelli x campanulata. After the re-discovery of thorelli and looking at those pitchers, and comparing to this plant, it definitely looks like they got the right 'thorelli' in this cross. I hope she blooms this year because now that I can actually sprout seed, I'd love to get some little plantlets going! Time will tell if I can actually get stuff past 'seedling' stage though.
    Pics post!-img_9535-jpg

    N.hamata x campanulata. I just had to. What an abomination
    Pics post!-img_9537-jpg

    N.clipeata. Or Clue-peata as we call it here
    Pics post!-img_9199-jpg

    My lithops! They're a year old now in that pic, from seed. As a swamp plant grower, I'm trying really hard to not water them!
    Pics post!-img_9195-jpg

    N.(lowii x veitchii) x campanulata. Yes, I hate lowii. Yes I hate the lowii-looks in this cross. But yes, I like how it adds longevity to the pitchers. Also keep your eyes peeled for this one!
    Pics post!-img_9200-jpg

    N.boschiana x campanulata. Blast from the past from the days that M.catalano ran a shop - he'd turn them around as soon as they got off the plane from SE Asia so you'd get a soft, in-shock plant but you knew that going into it lol... of course, being a desert grower, that meant I had it bagged and it didn't grow one. stinkin. milimeter. for a whole YEAR.
    Pics post!-img_9201-jpg

    Ok... apparently, I'm limited to 30 pics. Will need to continue in the next post...

    Whew... continuing on, and I guess I don't have more veggie garden pics I want to post (it's been an exhausting year... I should have taken more pics but didn't, you know?)

    N.spectabilis x talangensis upper. Keep your eyes peeled on the NASC for this too!
    Pics post!-img_9212-jpg

    N.edwardsiana. Apparently, they're sorta spotty. Either that or just mine is?
    Pics post!-img_9496-jpg

    N.glabrata. Wish I woulda gotten it in focus, but the nice pitchers are now gone... because I took cuttings for NASC Thanks to chibae for this plant back in the day!!
    Pics post!-img_9464-jpg

    N.bongso lower. This is the old Malesiana clone - I guess there's new seedgrown ones on the market now, but this one's pretty good too. I took a cutting of one of the old main growthpoints - mine's got a good 3? Or had. All about a 8-10" tall, I don't remember when they all grew in, and that's as tall as it ever gets for me and has never bloomed yet in the about-decade I've had it. Anyway, another NASC item to keep your eyes peeled for!
    Pics post!-img_9444-jpg

    N.densiflora x robcantleyii. The pitcher's a good foot tall. the plant is a beast!
    Pics post!-img_9442-jpg

    N.Gaya. Ok, so it might be St.Gaya? But I bought it without the beatification so... I'm not sure which it is. But it's a dead-ringer for that nice khasiana cross that is the St.Gaya. I always love khasi crosses!
    Pics post!-img_9439-jpg

    My succulent collection! Still miraculously alive!
    Pics post!-img_9423-jpg

    Seedlings... before I accidentally dropped the container :O I hope they survive. I've never done this before!
    Pics post!-img_9221-jpg

    N.Nephthys. My only surviving Sam Estes cross from my trip to his nursery back in the day. RIP his shop because a volcano ate it.
    Pics post!-img_9214-jpg

    N.xSplendiana x xMixta. If only I had written down where I got it because it has a strange embossed metal tag with it so I'm a good 99% sure it didn't come from a shop. I wish this one would bloom, and at the same time as my campy crosses because I'm certain it would make the best hybrid ever.
    Pics post!-img_9202-jpg

    N.campanulata x maxima. The only bad thing about this plant is that the pitchers are as tender as a hamata's. Other than that, really wonderful plant.
    Pics post!-img_9203-jpg

    N.burbidgeae x campanulata. I mean it's campy. Crossed with white and spotty/striped. What's there not to love!
    Pics post!-img_9204-jpg

    N.ventricosa x inermis. I remember when everyone and their mother was selling these and nobody wanted to buy one. Now they cost how much So I took cuttings and am rooting for NASC too
    Pics post!-img_9210-jpg

    Last but very not least, my cute little double-campy hybrid seedling! It's N. (maxima x campanulata) x Hamakua 'Ninole' and I hope it lives up to my hopes and dreams!!
    Pics post!-img_9498-jpg

    And I guess that's it for now. I hate the picture uploading thing here (sorry adnedarn )
