Can't edit the op yet so I'll add the new arrivals from yesterday here.
All of the following were from Lee's Botanical Gardens on FB 7-15-21:

+3ish D. capillaris
~5 D. binata
1 D. nidiformis
2 P. primulifolia
1 P. planifolia
3 P. caerulea
1 S. rosea 'Chipola'
1 S. rubra gulfensis
U. purpurea
U. cornuta

Also threw up a short review of my experience with LBG on the supplier forum since there wasn't much to be found on them.

One more batch arrived, this time from Cook's 7-22-21. I was a little skeptical ordering from them considering pricing and seeing several posts expressing disappointment in their plants aside from their sarrs, but pulled the trigger anyway since it was the only place I could find Darlingtonia in stock right now. I don't see any need in doing a full write-up this time, especially on a competitor's site, but I will at least say I didn't experience the issues that I saw detailed elsewhere and was happy enough with what I got, which included:

1x Darlingtonia californica
2x Dionaea (Maroon Monster, DCXL) (both labeled 'near flowering size')
1x Drosera spatulata

Also saw another ventrata in a deathcube when I was in Lowe's last night 7-21-21 so naturally now I have another. Will probably give this one away come spring though since I don't have near enough space for a lot of neps right now. And now that the heat of summer has arrived, this may be it for me for a bit unless I find some helis or something else I just can't pass up.

Night, just a suggestion, but get your post count up to at least 25, even donate seeds to the seed bank if you're able. Heck, just post "Cool!" or, "Nice plant!" on other posts.
I say this because I have it on good authority (being the seed bank manager) that some of your wish list might become available very soon, like the 1st of August soon (a potentially insanely red Cape). Others on your wish list are available now (filiformis var Floridana "White Flower), and I may have some S. alabamensis seed this fall.
Just a thought.

Oh for sure and thanks for the heads up. And believe me I've had that in the back of my mind, I'm just a lot more of a listener than a talker until I can get settled in and hate feeling like I'm just being spammy especially just to qualify for free stuff. I do have some seeds coming up that I definitely do plan on donating if the seed bank needs them, but it'll likely be another 1-2 months on those so I'll just have to work harder on posts in the meantime. For right now though, I'm just hoping the stamps I ordered come in time to get a July order in...

Finally done with this last flurry of orders for my heli terrarium, so here's the update for the last month or so:
@Nepenthes0260 8-19-21
1x D. adelae 'Giant'
1x H. nutans (Roraimita) 02 AW
1x H. pulchella (Akopan)

FB Sales Group 8-21-21
1x Cephalotus follicularis (typical)
1x H. chimantensis (chimanta) 04 AW
1x H. ionassi
1x H. minor "Burgundy-Black" AW
Pot of D. tokaiensis seedlings

@MikeB 8-30-21
Red Sphagnum - Meadowview

Rainbow Carnivorous Plants 9-2-21
2x D. prolifera
3x D. riparia

Adding a few pictures this time, including a small HCW pitcher I thought turned out nice and a basal on my Lowe's Ventrata along with the mantis that's been living on that plant for the last 3 weeks now.

Up next: Hopefully get a raspberry pi and sensors ordered in the next few days and write a circuitpython program to: allow remote viewing of logged and charted temperature and humidity data using InfluxDB and Grafana, monitor the humidifer's water level with an ultrasonic proximity sensor, send text alerts when temp/humidity go out of bounds or the humidifer is almost empty, and if I still need it control an exhaust fan in the event of unexpectedly high day humidity. Not making any promises because I hate making obligations lol, but if I do get it thrown together and working and there's any interest I'll try to do a write-up thread and post the code on github in case anyone might want it, though this is mainly just for my purposes and therefore probably won't be quite as easy to set up as a little more out-of-box stuff like in the Home Assistant thread.
