    Nepenthes Review Threads

    Is anybody interested in starting Nepenthes species review threads so other can check them out to use when considering their next purchase? Maybe a subforum could be in order?

    It's a really loose idea I just thought of it this morning. I know Joel's Nep's around the house website is up, but I feel that since I don't grow my nepenthes outside so his conditions might not be typical, many members can offer up their cumulative experience with a plant over the years and together we can form a general opinion on a plant?

    Since I only have grown a small handful in the last year, I'm always asking everybody what they think about a certain plant, and what they do like, and don't like, etc.

    So what do you think guys?

    This sounds like a great idea. I haven't been in the hobby for very long but I'd love to share what I've learned so far.

    I'd love to share my experience as well, since my growing temps change with the seasons I have good info on the temp preferences of several neps.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Well how would we implement such a thing? I think if we can get Andrew to create a subforum, I could create a thread for each species. The thing is there are like 100 species and most of them are in cultivation so things could get rather hairy. I think for the most part just the more common in cultivation.

    Maybe we could just make it available by request on this thread? I thought of it first as a readily accessible database that you could just click through, but maybe a request thread would work too. It might get disorganized though.

    If we do, It should be for other plants, too. At least for the genus that have more than a dozen species, like drosera.

    You might want to describe your growing conditions, too, as Neps perform differently in different conditions... a great idea, though!

    I agree with whats been said above, very good idea.
