But I am guessing this might as well be a standard "Introduction" post since it's been so long.
So let's see..
Hey guys and gals (and others).. I am Colin.. Not been here in many many moons.. Possibly even a decade..
I'm from Coventry, England.
Used to grow VFT's back in the day, and even had a accidental sundew grow on me once..
So, since I was last here.. Lets see... Moved out my parents.. Met a lady or two.. Even found one crazy enough to want to marry me.. Moved into a house together.. Had a child.. The child taken over that whole house, so we moved into a 2nd house, and fingers crossed this one is now big enough to be a 'forever home'..
Now that my daughter is 3¾, and between her and work is not taking up 100% of my time, it's time to get back into the hobby..
Since I will have a bigger space than a tiny desk/windowsill at parents house, and can actually make some reasonable space for some plants I may even be able to keep some alive..
I sadly seem to be struggling to even find photos of some of my plants I grown back in the day..
Though, it is nice to see my avatar is still around which shown one of my favorites that I can remember.
I always struggled to keep my plants growing past their first winter. So hopefully being older and wiser.. or atleast just older, I will be a little more successful.
But I think I am gonna start with sundews this time around. Start with something a little different and then come back to VFTs. So I am going to be super cheeky now and make a request at the seed bank, and research up to see what differences VFT and Sundews want for soil..
.... I do wonder where all my old growing lamps went to... I know I didn't throw them away, and they were still working...
But.. maybe worth investing in some LED ones now??
