    A terrific idea! I always liked neparoundthehouse, but since it is only one guys input, it wouldn't be as thorough as a communal growing conditions forum.

    Yeah I've been dying to get to know a few plants other than the short descriptions on nepsaroundthehouse and it would really eliminate the guesswork involved in picking plants.

    A lot of us have written a lot of good material here and in the month I have been here, I've learned more and more on a daily basis and improved my limited confidence in tackling the species' wants and needs. I've learned a little on how to understand my plant and even though I was doing fine in growing them, I've developed a higher sense of respect for each plant in my small collection. We have some excellent authors on this board and thats why I've made the full switch to this forum.

    So in forming a database of plant reviews (Drosera, Sarrs, Neps, etc) not only can we form a cumulative care guide on the species on an individual basis, but we can share the knowledge and opinions on some species that others might not have had the pleasure of growing yet. For instance, I'm curious about N. Ramispina, N. Ovata, and N. Sibuyanensis but would I make a new thread every time a plant piques my interest? It'd be totally awesome and we'd attract a lot of new forum members to contribute (and customers of the store) if we had a one stop shop for readily accessible information.

    As Clue said, describing the growing conditions you have them in would be a good way for people to identify with the grower who closest maintains the same conditions and go from there. It'd be like yelp for plants!

    I just have no idea how to start?

    What about a subforum with 1 thread/subforum for each species, maybe a sticky at the top with confirmed environmental requirements at the top and open discussion for everyone who has questions regarding cultivation or experience to share ?

    edit: or maybe a closed forum with interesting posts in the other forums archived in the species thread.

    Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.

    Maybe the beginning of the growing season kept everyone busy ?

    Oh all I did was just ask questions about individual species. I think I started an N. Khasi thread that was pretty successful. At least it'll come up in the search function?
