Hi everyone, I am Griff! I'm new to growing Carnivorous Plants, and I am interested in growing Nepenthes. I just got my first CP on Wednesday, a Nepenthes x. 'Ventrata', at my local greenhouse. Can't wait to learn more about growing this wonderful plant. Can't wait to hear from you guys.

So far, it is doing pretty well. What conditions does it like. In the early spring here (especially tonight), it can can get to 8 to 9 degrees Celsius on some nights. So far, putting my Ventrata outside in the few days I have had him outside, he seems to have gotten a little bit bigger. I am going to acclimate him to the warmer night temperatures tomorrow, and just let him adjust on his own. My room does not get the adequate lighting on the south side because I live right by my houses 2nd story balcony, which blocks alot of sunlight. Anyways, cheers. :)
