Well my name is Brian. I just got a copy of "the savage garden" and i have to say im very interested in CP's. I've had exp. with terrariums and other potted plants (orchids,lilys,etc). Right now I only have a 1gal. cookie jar terrarium I made with an asparagus fern, african violet, and kyoto moss as ground cover. Its been growing nicely for 2 yrs with minute triming on occasion.
I am wondering if anyone has anything they could pass along to get me started. Im most interested in Drosera, Pinguicula, and Utricularia. I live in an apt. so my guess is Sarracenia is pretty much out of the question. I do have a large 5 gal pot
but the only sun my patio gets is morning till noon.
For growing conditions I was thinking outside but I also have a 5 gal fish tank (betta finally kicked the bucket after 3 yrs) 65w florex and 2 or 3 2' floros. So if I nd to set something up I can. I keep the temps low in the house all year around 68 or 70f and I have a small water way 2ft off my balcony so I think the humidity will be a little higher around my patio. If anyone needs more info feel free to ask.
Im sry I dont have anything to trade yet. And my cash flow is very low cause im looking for a new job. I can handle sase and minor shipping charges $5 or less. Thx for reading if anyone can help out I would appericate the effort.
I hope to become a productive member here.
