I hope you're proud these are stunning. The only reason I'm not a big fan and buyer of these is two reasons.

I have no adequate growing conditions, and they are stinking expensive, but it looks likes you've got them pegged.

Behind my endless jealously I do actually wonder how people afford this stuff sometimes :D, do you ever set up shop?

getting the conditions right for growing my nep has been a very long and expensive process, what you guys see here now is some 15 years of experimentation to get it some where right with this green house, have had many other variations way before that , have had to change the whole set up many times over, going to Borneo many times help get the condition right to ,seeing how the plants I want to grow in the wild gave me a huge advantage on knowing what they need and want , but putting it into a green house set up has been very difficult indeed , , our climate here helps a lot , we have very mild winters ( no snow )but hot summers and loads of sun , its been a huge advantage climate wise , and we have a large pool of knowledge here too with our CP society . the amount of plants I have don't happen over night , its been over many years ,swapping , buying , selling ,even bought some ones collection and with some 450 mature neps ,and huge amount of plants from seedlings to semi mature , number unknown!!, the conditions need to be some where right to sustain them , affording the plants , well when u get to my age its a lot easier and you just do it when its your hobby right !! would never been able to do all this when I had kids and paying of a house thats for sure !!

Thanks Eric
your doing extremely good your self my Friend , what did you want to see, i got more improvements on the green house , plants are growing like weeds and so many other things going on experiments wise , , you want to see plants ,set up ?? ,takes me about 2 hours to get through the green house to check every thing out properly these days ha ha ah !! the experiment growing sphag has been good , some places its about 8 or 9 in deep now growing up the pots that are standing on a pot to keep the pitchers full length , as you know my ceph experiment's have been reasonable , may move a whole nep section over and have a ceph bed going , but still in the works , let me know what i was you wanted to see !!
