Greetings, all. I’ve been reading here and there seems to be a lot of great information and great people.
I’m in North Carolina. I started out with VFTs and sarracenia almost a year ago. I now have more VFTs, sundews, sarracenias, nepenthes, butterworts, and bog violets. Some of these will remain indoor plants, but my goal is to grow a couple of nice bog planters outside at a new home I'm moving into.
I’m an avid gardener of regular plants, and decided to finally jump in and experience carnivorous plants myself, instead of admiring them from afar.
I'm happy to be part of this group.

Instructions on how to use it are down at the bottom of the inventory list. :)

Also, be sure to read the "Bonus" post by Chef in the Seed Bank forum.
