Hi everyone! Dennis here. Long-time reader, but I've just registered for the forum today. :)

I started about 2 years ago, and I now have a VFT with me for 6 months (bought as a 1 cm seedling), several Drosera capillaris (from one 1 cm specimen to 5 individual plants) and a full-grown Nepenthes gracilis.

I tried starting my VFTs from seed, and I've had mixed success and all the bad luck. The ones that sprouted at the beginning were growing well, but got washed away by heavy rains... :( I'll try again when I get more seeds :)

Welcome to the forum. The good thing about bad luck is that it teaches you what not to do.
