Hello all, My name is JJ, and I recently took a loving to growing carnivorous plants. It all started with my wife buying me a Venus Fly Trap from Wal Mart out of the blue a few months ago and the rest is history. I actually bought a DCXL from Matt and his wife a couple a months ago and it looked so healthy. It's growing quite well now. Thank you Matt!

My leisure growing has turned into a relaxing, rewarding project. I bought one of those Ikea glass cabinets and converted it into a CP greenhouse. I have VFTs, Nepenthes, Cephalotus, Sarracenia, Droseras, and Pinguiculas. I didn't think I'd fall for CPs this hard, but here I am! :D I must say, I've been missing out! I can't to share my experience and new passion with you guys as well as learn from you all.

Happy growing!

Heyo, and welcome to the forum! This is truly an addictive hobby that will most likely continue to reel you further into spending loads of green paper on homicidal plants, but we consider that a good thing around here
