Let's take a trip down memory lane. How did all of you get started in this strange hobby?
I was in sixth grade when my science teacher told us we had a science project. We were supposed to grow some plants and see what kinds of enviromental factors affected their growth. I went home and typed flytrap into google. After several hours I came upon a nursery that delivered by mail. A week later I have four ventricosa. And a flytrap. The ventricosa were for my experiment. I threw them on my windowsill and stared. They grew well and pitchered on every leaf. The flytrap even got nice red traps. At the end of the school year I had an A on the project. I had given away the flytrap and had on ventricosa making uppers. I gave away the three of my ventricosa to my friend who gave me a capensis and minor. He was growing carnivorous plants for the science project too. Two years later and I'm growing plans I've never dreamed of and have become a plant freak.
So, what's your story?
