I've long enjoyed this forum as a lurker and I've just recently decided to finally join. I've been growing various genera of CP for ~8 years now and I thought I'd share some pictures of some of my plants as a first post.
Although I first started growing CP from a purely horticultural perspective, over the years I've become increasing fascinated with their habitat, ecology, animal signaling patterns, and conservation issues. Anyways before I start rambling on here are some pics:
N. jamban (BE-3276)
N. jacquelineae (BE-3093)
N. platychila x hamata
Seed grown N. izumiae (?)
N. inermis from AW
N. lavicola from AW
N. "mixta" so easy but still a plant I enjoy.
Seed grown N. attenboroughii, Mt. Victoria Peak #1
Seed grown N. lowii, Mt. Trusmadi
Seed grown N. macrophylla, Mt. Trusmadi
Seed grown Drosera auriculata
Seed grown D. regia
Pinguicula vulgaris var. macroseras in the wild
Seed grown Darlingtonia calfiornica
Frosty Cephalotus Ceph inflorescence
Seed grown Sarracenia purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkii
S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkii f. luteola
S. pupurea ssp. venosa var. montana, Transylvania CO, North Carolina.
S. flava var. artropurpurea Mike King clone # F124, from Donald Schnell
This is really just a small sample of my collection, and I hope to post more pictures (especially more Nepenthes) from my collection if people are interested and I can find the time.
Thanks for the kind words killerplants4realz and lottie02! As well as the likes from other members. It's always nice to have a warm welcome, especially when joining a forum with such amazing collections and experienced growers
I hope to share more of my collection in the future (I just noticed I didn't include any of my Heliamphora), as well as to be a more active participant in this forum.
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: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

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.
