    Nepenthes quickly turning black

    Hey Andrew, when I see rapidly advancing black and die off its usually due to stress. Even without extreme heat a plant sitting on the upper end of whats acceptable seems to make it vulnerable to a sudden collapse over enough time.

    Cheap USB LED grow lights

    Lux is just a measurement of lumens against distance. I use 12000 lumen lights about 1 foot away from my plants. However, these days, many growlights will give you a PAR value. 'm not sure kelvin matters much at all. Just go with something roughly in the middle.

    Giant and interesting species I might be able to grow

    Platychila is an intermediate elevation species. It will be adaptable to most conditions.

    Giant and interesting species I might be able to grow

    You will not be able to find rigidifolia, it is only produced by one nursery and they do not do retail sales. Sumatrana needs consistent warm and humid conditions to grow well. I wouldn't try it without a greenhouse

    Cheap USB LED grow lights

    Those are so weak that I'm not sure I'd bother. The restart in growth you saw was probably due more to winter beginning to end than anything those lights contributed. For a sense of scale, the lowest power lights I know of other people using draw 36 watts. Those usb sticks probably need to be...

    Giant and interesting species I might be able to grow

    Neither is something I'd recommend to a beginner, they're both expensive plants. If you must go with clipeata, it's cheaper

    Giant and interesting species I might be able to grow

    The only seller I know of is Wistuba. You'll have to contact them to see what their options for shipping into Israel is.

    Giant and interesting species I might be able to grow

    I know that clipeata at least can take lots of direct light. Again, if you want specific advice for growing outdoors you'll need to ask the advice of someone who lives in your area or be willing to experiment on your own. None of the rest of us live in Israel and weather forecasts and...

    Giant and interesting species I might be able to grow

    For highlanders I wouldn't be comfortable letting them get above 30C for extended periods of time. You're also neglecting the night time temperatures. A lot of the highland species you list require significant temperatures drops. Clipeata and klossii may work but merrilliana is a true lowland...

    Giant and interesting species I might be able to grow

    I feel as if we did answer this question at one point in the past. Palawanesis and burbidgeae are not lowland climate plants by any definition. The plants you listed as being known to grow in israel do so because they're very tough and adaptable species. The same is not true of most of the...

    Dripping sticky blobs

    That's normal. All nepenthes produce nectar, some just produce more than others. As you've seen, some even produce enough to drip off the plant.

    Advice about grow lights for winter

    That bulb is on the lower end of what I would use for plants. https://www.amazon.com/Deformable-Ceiling-Adjustable-Workshop-Basement/dp/B082W6SWPW/ref=sr_1_14?dchild=1&keywords=led+garage+bulb&qid=1629918091&sr=8-14 Something like this will give you a lot more power while still fitting into a...

    Yescom225 setup for drosea

    Those yescom panels need to be fairly close to work well. I'd hang it within 12 inches of the plants.

    Advice about grow lights for winter

    Yeah, I would not use those gooseneck lamps. They're so weak as to be almost useless. Like Tanukimo says any kind of LED meant to illuminate an area like a garage will be a much better value.

    Advice about grow lights for winter

    Shorter winter light hours aren't necessarily an issue. Depending on how far north you are you may be able to get away with no supplemental light. For the most part, the worst that will happen is a slow down in growth and fewer pitchers produced. If you do decide to supplement, LED arrays work...

    I'm new, looking for plants, and I've got questions...

    Besides the point about tropical vs temperate plants, you should consider doing a potted terrarium. This way you can eliminate the issue of different soil requirements, can more easily remove plants for maintenance, and save media. If you want a more natural look you can hide the pots with moss...

    How to keep humidity in terrarium high, without constant misting?

    Mistking nozzles are overkill for such a small space. For this kind of application an ultrasonic fogger would work much better. They will still introduce extra water into your set up, but at a much lower rate than a couple of misting nozzles.
