    I love the variety of colors and shapes that are just stunning. Please, when you have the time, keep us posted
    on the progress of the plants.

    Fair, when you get some room set up and you're able to accommodate some sundews, let me know

    We should make a CP megathread on here so that everyone can post their CPs including questions and the etc.

    Nice looking Sarracenias too, especially the flava. Mine don't get enough sun, so they get spindly and knocked over easily in the rain.

    Yeah, they really need full sun for most of the day to properly color up and do well. I had these plants in an in-ground bog for the last two years and they would become "floppy" since they didn't get nearly as much sun as they get now. Much happier with how they look this spring!

    Some random pictures from the past few days, being sick stinks but it did afford me some extra time to work with the plants.

    My new N. truncata, this particular plant is actually going to be grown like an ordinary houseplant in a south facing window

    I completely forgot about this thread! Around Christmas I upgraded to a custom growchamber, the growtent worked but was simply too small and also had only one small viewing window, which made it basically impossible to enjoy the plants without entering the tent. The new chamber is 8' x 4' x 6' with two shelves. Its been working wonderfully and makes for quite the display!

    and some random pitcher pics!
