    Who needs ten people?!?! Three is company (or five or six)!! I'm living in Provo, and my mom lives in Salt Lake with my CP collection split between both localities.I also know a really nice collector in Sugarhouse, Salt Lake City who has a nice collection. We should definately meet with some people in the not-too-distant future.
    Cheers

    Hi everyone, my name is Mike and I am beginning to get interested in growing some carnivorous plants. I've begun doing some research but I'm having trouble finding a good place to start. Any advice is appreciated. I am from Orem too, and I would also be very interested in attending any local meetings if those are stilll being planned? Thanks.

    Sorry I haven't written in a while. I've been dormant on TF for the winter (happens every year). I think a meeting or something would be awesome sometime this summer. Let me know if anyone is interested and we can organize a meet and greet, I'm taking classes until the end of June, but I have weekends open for possible meetings before then.

    Anyone in the Orem area can come see my class on CPs next Tuesday afternoon at Utah Valley University from 3:40 p.m. to 4:40 p.m. , I'm sure there will be plenty of seats. I'll post the room number when I find out.
    I should say something witty or remarkable but that would only prove my worth to society. To that I say meh!

    So, I forgot to post the room number for my presentation that was a week ago, but despite that, I was very happy to see so much interest in the CP hobby, I had about 30 people there and about 5 at the end that were really interested. They have my contact info, so let's see if I can give any plants away to the ones that get back to me. Thanks again to Utah Valley University for letting me teach the workshop.

    I'm still open to having a meeting sometime this summer, it will be awesome, even if only a few people show.

    I have been growing in Utah since 2003, when I started I made a Utah CP society website forum to find interest in a society and at the time my brother in law and I were mostly it. There was a cool kid that was with us too, but haven't heard from him in forever and don't even remember his name. I wonder where he is at these days.

    It has been over a year since the last post in here, are any of you actively following Terraforums? JB joked that he goes dormant in the winter, I find that I am the opposite. Every winter when it gets cold in Utah and the Trees lose their leaves I find myself back in full motivation to grow and talk CPs. They are how I get through the non-growing season here in Utah.

    So, I was about to post a "UTAH CP GROWER ROLL CALL" thread after I searched to see if anything else already existed. I am glad I found something but sad it is over a year old.

    JB I live in Orem as well, ready to help create the UTAH CP society with you whenever you want. I found that hosting the forum wasn't as useful as just coming to Terraforums but I can host a site again to get us a location for information about the society. I would also want to order a ton of seeds to have a free membership seed bank to build interest in joining. It is always sad to see the flooded vendor VFTs sitting in our nurseries and stores around here, but kids are buying them. I would love to help them know how to grow them better.

    Growing them indoors under lights for a couple years but I haven't tried to grow any outdoors in the warmer months. I moved away from Utah in 2005 and haven't yet tried VFTs outdoors. I hear people growing VFTs in Colorado, so I wonder what we could do, especially in a bog situation that has enough local humidity and depth to not dry out completely in a very hot day.

    Hope some of you are still active and see this!

    Sorry 'bout the delay, I've actually been dormant on TF for 15 months, but I'm back and willing to talk CPs now that things have settled down a little in my life.
