    Where do you get your Nepenthes from?

    Hey guys, I recently fell in love with Nepenthes, and decided that I wanted to try growing some. Unfortunately, I've been having very little luck finding any.

    Good but Cheap Humidifier?

    Hey all. Recently my repti fogger humidifer broke down. Many times I had left it on on the low setting and it turned itself off when the water ran out. I left it on on the high setting, the water ran out, and the humidifier stayed on. When I came back some of the water from the reservoir had...

Essentially, we have this strange situation where most of our preserved lands/habitats are in the western US. And of course, most of our...
