    Moving

    Heyo everyone

    Just a friendly FYI to let you guys and gals know that I'll be moving to Jacksonville Fl on July 15th for my Internal medicine residency. Any suggestions of plants that'll do well in that area? ty

    You can grow basically anything indoors.

    If you mean outside, I'd go with some sarrs if I were you.

    Residency? Congratulations. But you must mean plants that will do well without any care.

    Yes, congratulations are in order.

    You should be able to grow quite a few CPs outdoors: Sarracnenia, flytraps, many temperate Drosera, any subtropical Drosera and probably low-land Nepenthes.

    Hi Joel!

    Good to see you around. That's cool (so to speak) that will be in Florida. And congrats on the residency. I hope that goes well for you.

    Congratulations! As far as plant prospects, it'll depend on the living situation and how sunny of an area is available for plants. Sarrs need lots of sun and lowland Neps don't. If you'll be renting, you probably can't make big modifications for plants and almost certainly wouldn't be allowed to mess with the plumbing to install an RO system. If so, the supply of extra-soft water might be another factor to consider. Neps aren't as sensitive to water quality.
