Ok, I guess it's time for me to introduce myself a bit more. :)

My name is Mirek. I live on the north of the Czech republic, which means I'm supposed to be poor, sad and half german. Thankfully I'm neither of that. :P
My hobbies are CPs of course, PC games, books, an air rifle and my car. I know it sounds like I'm a regular nerd, but I'm not smart enough for that. :D I don't study IT although I know a bit about it. I study tourism.. well I did. I finished one college, sort of. I have something that is in CR almost on the same level as the bachelor degree, but I will attend another college in Prague next year and get the bachelor degree anyway. I speak czech of course, a little bit of german and english. Right, you don't have to ask me whether I understand or not.And if I don't, the fault is mostly on your side. :?
In future I would like to visit the US.. hell, I've always wanted to visit the US. Or just the North America generally (it must be warm there though). :mrgreen: My uncle went to Vancouver some (many) years ago and lived there. He is a fcking idiot and I've never liked him, but this is really something I would like to achieve too.

And I don't know what else to tell you about me so here just my photo (god, is there a way to shrink the photo?)

Well here I am ... this is me ...in a nut shell ..

I was born and raised in North London (uk) love all animals & birds

Later joined a horticultural society .. for many years organised horticultural shows, exhibited many different plants & specialised in exhibiting and growing Primula Auricula. Was also a member of the Guild of Horticultural Show Judges. Did a garden design course & my last flower show I was a small part of was the very first Hampton Court International Flower Show. That was way back in 1990 !!! One of the areas I was responsible for in the show had a wonderful display of carnivorous plants. I decided then to try my hand at growing them ...

In 1999 & moved to Scotland ... its cold here

My day job was working in various garden centres .. my other day job is an artist. Whilst I have lived in Scotland I have completed my BA hons in Fine Art, and had a horse fall on my foot .. Now I edit a garden art e-magazine.

Been married to my soul mate for 19 years.. no plans to trade him in :)

My Art work is based on the book Silent Spring by Rachel Carson and the writings of Plato. It is an observation of the horticultural trade pushing no end of products to kill .. herbicides, pesticides, fungicides ... if your looking to kill anything then your first stop should be a garden centre ! My art is also about creating immortality for the subjects I photograph. I have a few books with my art work in.
I don't think its allowed to put my magazine or personal web site, but if your interested PM me.

Well i guess i have to do this at some point so here it goes.

I am duco. I am 15 years old and live in holland (beesd to be precise). I have always loved growing stuff like herbs and fruit and vegetables. I kinda was ( am being) raised like that. My father has a thing for bonsai so i guess that is where my passion came from.

I obviously am obsessed with growing cp's but i also like to cube( solve a rubiks cube) game, watch tv and work in the zoo.
The zoo i work in is fairly small but has a lot of cool animals that no one has ever seen like a grison.
So thats me in short terms.

I'm 23, from australia, live at home & studying at the moment, i have some savings, and i hope one day to own a house (or atleast mortgage one), and build a big greenhouse on the property, so i can start a small home/hobby business growing CP's, i don't think the AU market is too saturated when it comes to CP's

also vegan, and i exercise alot... i basically will be living to 150.

i have some interests in software engineering, and conservation biology... still no real idea what i will end up doing (how do people decide??)

that's it

Thought I'd join in :D

Hello my name is Saka (Thats my middle name) I am
12 and I live in the Special Region of Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia. Search it up. I have bronchitis but I got time for that. I git my first CP when I was 5, it was a Nepenthes Rafflesiana from a local nursery (that thankfully is still up!!). I then moved to the US shortly after, I went to Fort Collins, CO because my dad was in a university there. I then got my second CP, an Akai Ryu from eBay, which died for some reason. I gave my nep to my grandmother if you were wondering, (She fertilized it). I stayed in the us for about 3.5 years. I then got a N. Mirabilis which died because of root rot. After the Nepenthes I got a 50 gallon saltwater tank. After that, I got my current Nepenthes after a trip to Borobudur Temple. It was when I got my Nep that I joined flytrapcare in hopes of identifying it.

My other hobbies include reefing (Saltwater tank), gaming, coding, and Conway's Game of Life.

Recent online tests in school with my friends indicate that I am a mild deutian (mild red-green colorblind especially in low light).
