hi all. my name is Widi. i live in bogor. quite new in neps world. hope i can learn more about neps in this forum. actually i started to admire neps few years ago. but at that time, i lived in semarang, and unfortunately no one i can talk to about neps. well, they thought that neps can only be found in rainforests in borneo, or even worse, only in my biology book. but look at this time, seem everyone can talk about neps! well i guess this is a good start for neps world in indonesia. let's grow 'em, cultivate 'em, and don't let 'em extinct, and soon we can see our children can admire these beautiful plants from their own rooms, not only in their biology books.
im new too. I started growing neps 1 year ago. I have learnt alot from the experts growers here and im still learning. I agree that neps are really awesome. Before i grow neps, i grow other plants such as Staghorn ferns, orchids, hoyas, alocasia and palms. Remind me of a saying which I cant remembered who said this.... "All roads lead to nepenthes" (Semua perjalanan tuju ke nepenthes)
I really love the biodiversity found in this region. Its diversity not only limited to plants and animals but also to human cultures in this region as humans are part of nature afterall. Nepenthes fascinates me. Im amazed whenever i look at the architecture of a rafflesiana pitcher. That is why my favourite neps will always be rafflesiana, ampullaria and hookeriana. My 1st neps was the humble gracilis. To it, i hold my eternal gratitude as it has taught me alot of lessons.
Pls tell us what is your favourite neps if u have one.

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: 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.
