Hey all, Brian here, guess I should introduce myself.

I'm from Byron, MI. Just got started with carnivorous plants a couple months ago. Bought a few death cubes in the past and they always died on me. Now I know I shouldn't give them my softened well water...doh.

Well anyway I found a few more death cubes, and after lots of reading here and on Facebook, they seem to be doing rather well. So, I expanded to a couple cultivars, a Sarracenia, a Nepenthes and a few Drosera.

Now I am branching out to start growing from seed, and hopefully have some to offer locally as there really isn't much around. Wish me luck.

Brian
