Hi all!
I'm a relatively new CP grower, having killed a VFT at the beginning of the year (by both underwatering, and only using famously horrible london tapwater), then deciding I needed to try again but actually learn how to keep the little guys alive.

I went all in and now have a container bog garden with multiple varieties of VFT and drosera, and some separate nepenthes. They've all been thriving since I set them up in early spring. I love them all and can't wait for when I have more space for a much larger bog garden, and maybe a little greenhouse inside for my nepenthes so I can actually appreciate them! My next CP will be sarracenia :)
