Hello All,

Just discovered this forum! Started growing carnivorous plants last year and looking to spread the hobby!
Currently keeping an assortment of VFT, Drosera, Nepenthes and successfully germinated some N. Amp seedling.

Welcome to a great forum, seems like you have quite a nice collection. The city is tough on plants outdoors, I have had seagulls and dogs disturb my plants when I left them outside near my job at Chelsea Piers. I have a Nepenthese, S. Purpurea and a VFT now and waiting on some seeds from Chef Dean at the seed bank. Enjoy this place, I mostly read and don’t post much as I’m still trying to figure things out.

Thanks for the advice! I have been keeping everything under lights so far but plan to take them outside this grow season.
