Hey everyone!

I am new to the hobby. I originally got started with two sundews, a capensis and a spatulata, to help control fungus gnats. I then tried to hunt down a butterwort, and the seller kindly sent me about 10 extra assorted plants to help me get started. I have tons of questions!

I'm still learning! I primarily had been growing orchids before this, and some other odd plants like mimosa pudica. I'm excited to learn with you all. Cheers!
