    Attempting to start a small business in college

    As the title states, I planning to start a small plant business in college this fall.


    Of the plants I will be hopefully be selling, these are carnivorous ones I want to use.


    If anyone could ID those for me, that would be lovely.
    They're easy plants to grow, I think, or should I switch to something else?
    I'm also willing to add one more of any plant, anyone have a suggestion?
    Also, general advice would be good.

    My guesses are D. natalensis for the little one, and D. nidiformis as the larger.

    Do you plan on propagating these particular plants? And who are you selling these to? I'm just trying to figure out what your trying to do so myself and others can give you advice.

    I just harvested some seeds for no reason, and I'm currently testing out how fast I can do leaf propagation.

    I would so much prefer propagation over seeds, cause their is way more control IMO.

    I wish you the best of luck with this. I too am trying to get my own business started and it's not easy but I am slowly building up quite a selection. Atm, I have more agave and palm than I can move. I haven't done anything with seeds or cuttings though cause I don't have much luck with that(I killed a perfectly pulled Nep leaf :/ Couldn't have asked for cleaner). But perhaps once I get a better setup I can try it.

    Gigantea, I'm afraid neps can't be propagated from leaf pullings...so it wasn't your fault.
    Gettin there...
