I honestly don't recall lol. I started growing as a hobby with bonsai a few years ago but started acquiring carnivorous plants sometime within the last couple of years. Outside of extras, a lot of them were acquired in cheap auctions and there are some "must have this" kinda plants in there. Seed grown stuff too. I aim to do propagation and work with them in the future. Having a nursery of sorts is definitely a dream of mine going forward. I have a tendency to push the limits of what I do with hobbies and learning which is why I absorbed so much information and tried to grow such a variety of them. The funny thing is my carnivorous plant collection has since eclipsed my original hobby. There was a thread a couple days ago blaming the forum for the addiction topic49011.html . It's the truth lol. I was also inspired by what I saw on here and the accessibility with trades. If you want to see an insane list check out one like Nepenthes0260. His makes mine look like a starter pack :lol:

Did an update to include some of my seed germinations as well as some pygmy sundews I recently acquired (I love these things). Also included some more uncommon plants I happened to stumble upon.

Added Stylidium Debile and Sarracenia Alabamensis. So stoked for this upcoming growing season with the pitcher plants.

Yeah. You'd be surprised at how many uncommon CPs you can get from ebay on the cheap.

Pretty decent sized update to include a host of flytraps, utrics, pinguicula and drosera. I was actually surprised by the VFTs. I'm sure I've left something out. A few were acquired from a trade with madrone (who I wholeheartedly recommend trading with; she's great)
