    Directions for nubies?

    Hi Everyone, I'm a nubie and I'm not sure where to post this....Do you have a thread for the newcomers? I have some very basic questions and everyone sounds extremely advanced, I'm alittle embarrassed to just pop right up with a question.
    Please let me know ...?
    Thanks
    marian

    You may want to do a search on "Nepenthes University". It's a pretty comprehensive list of species, their requirements and even some tips and tricks on how to get started with neps.

    chances are, many people have asked the same questions in the past. do a search through the thread forum. take a look at the stickies in each section. that should bring you up to speed. and if not, go ahead and ask a question on the chatboard. people are usually pretty helpful and wont mind answering noob questions

    Agreed^

    If you don't want to make a thread, try chat. Lots of knowledgeable people and since they've already put up with my stupid questions I don't think they would mind any of yours.

    Most everyone would be happy to answer anything -- if you cannot find an answer on any of the threads; and everyone has to start somewhere.

    What are you growing and what is the jist of your questions?

    Welcome to Terraforums. This is a very friendly environment for beginners.

    Pick up a copy of Peter D'Amato's "Savage Garden" and Barry Rice's "Growing Carnivorous Plants" from Borders, Amazon, the Public Library or the authors themselves.

    Read Barry Rice's online Carnivorous Plant FAQ

    Browse through the Topics here, use the search function and above all don't be shy about posting questions and photos or just about anything that's on your mind.
