Yes, maybe this should be moved to nepenthes or something, I've noticed with other posts that this sections isn't that active.

Thanks, and they were in the mail for almost two weeks! No broken growth points and none looking sickly is all I could have hoped for.

Do you have any new pics of your plants? If you have a thread and I just dont know it please send link!

Wow, I assumed they'd been in the mail a few days.

I need to make a post with my set up, I'll do that tomorrow when I have a bit more time. Be aware that I only have 2 nepenthes...yet lol

Yeah because they came from Borneo then as soon as they arrived after import to pearl river exotics they shipped them to me.

doesnt matter if you have two or two hundred neps, still cool to watch them grow! :) Plus you have other types as well

I've never ordered from them, I didn't know how that whole system worked.

Absolutely!Neps are some of my favorite cp's! True, I have some other carnivorous plants besides nepenthes.

Anyhow, heres the link to my grow room :D my-basement-grow-room-t43735.html

Wow! Your collection is really starting to look amazing now! I really like your Spect x Talangensis :)
Just curious, what kind of foggers are you using and on average how much water do you go through?
Thanks!

That is quiet the collection.

It's kind of cool how I could tell what photos were of spectabilis hybrid before I saw the captions because of how familiar I am with my spectabilis x spathulata plant.

spectabilis May be one of the most underrated species out there. Makes nearly any cross better and is so hardy. Plus who doesn’t love striped peristomes ;)
