Hi there. I've been lurking for a while but decided to join the discussion. I fell in love with a Nepenthes at the grocery store a couple years ago and haven't been able to get enough of them since. I discovered tissue culture from the appendix at the back of The Savage Garden and decided to give it a shot. I've already learned a lot from this forum and look forward to sharing a lot more.
Unfortunately, the VFTs and sarracenias are about a days drive from here. I've been told there was mountain sarracenia that grew wild here that went extinct in this area. I never heard of it and never saw one. I live in an area where people hate bogs of any size citing that they cause mosquitos. Whenever anyone finds standing water on their land they drain it or fill it in with dirt. If I ever get into a position where I can own my own property I want a swamp. lol. A little utricularia gibba ought to make a quick lunch of any skeeters.
