... you dream of discovering/cultivating a nepenthes which you can grow in the UK. ... you have more nepenthes than friends. ... your ideal holiday is in a rainforest/cloud forest with giant earthworms and leeches rather than on the beach in the same country. ... you wish you could grow nepenthes outside. ... you want it to be unbearably humid in your country just because rainforests are. ... you're worried about school because you won't be able to mist your nepenthes all day. ... you scream "No way!" when you see pinguiculas in the wild. ... you have to go to any garden-centre you drive by in case you see carnivorous plants.
... when you fantasise about having the ultimate greenhouses for the ultimate collections. ... when you think about a non-carnivorous companion for your plants. ... when you actually find a bog exciting. ... when you could stand all day just looking at a pinguicula vulgaris on a hill. ... when you're more excited about seeing a large nepenthes than a celebrity. ... when you're compelled to stand and stare (for a long time) at a sarracenia leucophylla in a garden-centre, even though you've seen many before. ... when the only vegetable in your fridge is a dormant dionaea muscipulla (venus fly trap). ... when you think about doing the celery and food colouring experiment on a sarracenia leucophylla. ... when you want a nepenthes that you think looks like a toilet.
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.

mylesg: i havent checked in here for a while, why does it seem all the CP forums have lost their once strong activity? the trade/sale section used to be so active and now its a ghost town. where is everybody hanging out these days for a strong online CP community?

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.
