Well, after a tough couple of years I'm finally back into the swing of things. Last weekend I finally pulled the vfts, cobras and Sarras out of my fridge from winter dormancy (~xmas to ~st patty's day) and cleaned up all the everything else too so my plants look a little bit less embarassing. I'm trying out imgur because I quit photobucket back when they decided to start charging people to use their own photos lol.... I guess they decided to un-do what they did, but I gave up already. On with the pics!

Great to see some photos. You've got some nice xTM hybrids around your collection.

You dropped way too many photos in one post! How am I supposed to address them all? :cower:
It all looks absolutely amazing, the work tank so super cool. I've looked up and down the post multiple times over the past few days and I simply cannot come to decide which I like the most... there are multiples. The P. gigantea grabs my eye though, I've not seen them with that paddle shape before and I've never seen mine change leaf form so that's interesting too.

That Clipeata is absolutely stunning.

Do you keep your plants outside mostly? Just curious about how hardy some of them are and if I could be more lenient with my own conditions.

Thanks, I've been growing it out for 10 years. It's the slowest EVAR.

I think it would be easier if I listed what's inside -
Nep clipeatas and clippy x clippy x eymae (clone 1 of clippy, essentially)
boschiana x campanulata, thorelli x campanulata, campanulata x maxima, (veitchii x lowii) x campanulata, hamiguitanensis, peltata, alata, xNephthys, x splendiana x xmixta, robcantleyii, and a bunch of phalaenopsis orchids, bromeliads, and some common houseplants.

Everything else is outside including all my other intermediates and highlanders, except for the Nep villosa and ampullaria who cohabit the work terrarium. (go figure, amp and villosa lol...)

That's amazing that Villosa and Amp can be happy in the same space.

I am impressed the plants do so well outside. Do you live in a generally humid area?

Nope, it's generally desert with irrigation here. If it does get humid for a few days when it rains in the 'Winter', the next day could have a sudden swing back down to 0%RH in which case I lose most of my pitchers and my dew leaves start getting toasty. Most Nepenthes can toughen up and acclimate to low humidity if you do it slowly, but you will have smaller leaves, smaller woodier pitchers that last less long (except for xTM hybrids), and you'll need to have a larger size pot because they rely on their roots more to gather and absorb water. That being said, there are definitely plants that I can't grow well in low humidity because they just absolutely won't acclimate (alata, hamiguitanensis and peltata do SO bad for me - stunted and no pitchers; robcantleyii - lidless pitchers, etc... Several others I've sent off over the years too). I take a trial-by-fire approach: get a plant, see what it does, send off to a new home if I can't make it work.
