My name is varun. I am a 20 yr old third yr Biochem, Mol. Bio Spl. university student. I love animals and plants, but, kinda admire but hate insects ;).
I always like having exotic species (plants) in my home, but this wish never materialises as I DO NOT want to endanger the plant or risk it dying because of my lack of care.
I finally decided to start a small fishbowl terrarium with atleast 5 or so venus fly traps. Nothing fancy, just the common VFT species.
here is my start, the first VFT that I bought at the local sqare one walmart.

Welcome! Be warned that once you start growing carnivorous plants, it's no turning back. They'll be coming out of your ears in no time, TRUST me!

lol! I kinda already find myself in the middle of it. I already bought a new terrarium kit with 5 varities of VFT's in it from **********.com. I already spent 50$ on it. I am now presently researching about getting some live moss, a few small ferns to grow in it as well. http://www.terraforums.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

LOL Zac and Suzanne,thanks for the props (and posting that link, SWEET)
It is always a happy time when another Canadian CP-er sprouts, especially an ambitious one like Verun here, I forsee some good things from this one http://www.terraforums.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
(and it took me so long to post cos I basically PMed Verun as soon as I saw the Canadian affiliation)
