hi there my name is paul, im 41 years of age I live in Denver colo and ive been working with flytraps for about 3 years now,  almost 2 of that I spent killing them  :(  everything I did failed, I would purchase bran new plants and they would die like a week  later ,lol it sucked, I almost stoped trying altogether.

then I began to really research and study on them, and finally I got a good chemistry going and recently I have had some success and made a few clones,.. I used cuttings from a vft I purchased on ebay, the largest of the 2 I donated to a friend, the other one has been growing nicely for about three months now, its my " avatar pic " at the moment.

I also have a few seedlings that have been growing since july , I also have a small  sundew growing ,and the rest of are cuttings I hope will take soon.

anyway I have not been able to successfully put one of my plants through dormancy yet, but this also something that I want to do well in. just in case id like to seed one of my future clones..

I didn't realize just how many people grew cps  ,  THATS AWSOME :)

I really love flytraps , I enjoy watching a new trap form and open as much as I do watching them catch bugs.

and its true that they don't ever have to be feed to grow well,

but yea im  no expert on it, im just happy to have finally got a few NOT to die on me ,lol  .

on a side note " 4 DAYLIGHT " fluorescent bulbs" have worked really well for me, you can leave them on for long periods of time and it doesn't burn the plants..

Hi so this is my first step in building my terrarium. 

I'm currently nicknaming this little guy Audrey for now, (yes I'm nicknaming it, don't judge), If it survives, I'll go out to michaels and buy the terrarium and supplies for step two
