I just got some new plants in today from Wistuba. The weather was great for it and the plants seem healthy enough. I'll top dress the pots with Sphagnum once they've settled in a bit. I also have a bunch of different Utricularia species establishing themselves in my terrarium substrate. Hopefully that wasn't a bad idea... Ha
Beautiful plants guys. It is definitely a good grower... similar to jacquelineae and jamban in terms of conditions. I got a tenuis in the last group order in 2011, but it died during my big freeze in January.

Another one of those plants I need to re acquire later in the future once I have a bigger growspace.
roraima- yes, I must say I'm pretty excited. I've been pretty picky with what Nepenthes I purchase, and I've tried to keep them somewhat "terrarium appropriate", although there are always exceptions. I'm going to have to start planning a bigger grow area soon... ha. I will get some more pictures going once the plants settle in and start growing. They really don't look like much at this point in time.
maiden- nice plants! N. tenuis is definitely a cool species, funny that it's my most expensive plant so far. It definitely has the thinnest leaves of that particular shipment, so I'll have to harden it up a bit.
vraev- my condolences. What a shame. Looks like they were growing very well for you at one point.
Hey maiden- yeah, I've divided and rooted the N. argentii divisions. I'm trying to grow a nice little group of them. I haven't had this species long enough to see what kind of growth it's capable of, so I'm not ready to trade/sell anything.
Here is the terrarium. As always, I have plants in many different stages of development, and I've just pulled up a bunch of Sphagnum. With all the new plants, this terrarium is looking a lot smaller. Also, I think I need some more Tillandsia to help shade the Masdevallia. They're not doing so well, unfortunately.

bonfield: I've decided to finally reveal my best-kept secret for growing healthy Neps: Just spit on them every few days, the enzymes in saliva help them to better absorb the fertilizer I spray them with!

chrisrichard: SCAM ALERT--Don't buy from Pearl River Exotics in Georgia. What they advertise on their website IS NOT WHAT U GET!!! I've learned from my horrible experience+am sharing with everyone, so you don't get ensnared in the same trap of false advertising by them.
