Yeah, I have some Sarr that Copper sent me and some of the ones that were collected from that site in FL(the radio station). They chill outside in a tank/bog all winter and are still lookin good. Well as good as can be expected for a dormant plant that dies back a bit. I am actually more of a Nep and Ceph person but I have put them on hold till I can get a proper chamber setup. I insist on this so I must wait. I just hate having a ghetto setup so I'm doin somethin bout it.

I agree that if you don't grow cp's you must leave, now. But since you have some growing outside, we should reach some type of compromise. I say you must leave for now, you'll be allowed back as soon as your plants outside come out of dormancy.

Oh yeah, if you have reptiles or aquariums, you can still visit those forums.

Don't feel alone, I have 4 pitcher plants and a half dozen roridula I raised from seed. Everything else I had died during the multiple hurricanes, and I haven't bothered to replace any of it.

I'm sure that if I can keep as many plants (which isn't that many but you know...), you can keep some of them! I basically have a clear plastic box on a windowsill as my "growth chamber". that's it! no growth lights, no sun, no humidifier, etc... and so far so good! I've killed only a small percentage of the species I get and it's usually because of lack of sun (and a couple because of shipping stress) ... It's very easy to care for your CPs in a plastic box

there's no excuse for not having CPs! :p

Oh its not that i can't it's that I am tired of "ghetto" rigging. I had 6 Neps in a 40gln Rubbermaid tub with a glass slate and grow lights and it worked well but I want the "real deal". So I am slowly putting together a real chamber as a pro would or a zoo, ya know something to that effect.
