Past a third of the way through September and no other entries. I'm in with a chance.
Went to the greenhouse looking for something suitable to snap. Wondered what to try this month.... maybe I could try to win the forum members over with something delicate and subtle like tenuis or jamban?
Er, no. Straight to the EP hybrids instead... here's truncata x spectabilis. This one opened about a week ago....so there's still big changes to be seen on this pitcher.
I did try to move the plant from its spot to try to get nicer pictures without so much clutter, but it's enormous and all tangled up with other EP monsters, so I gave up.
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
