    Actually, I kinda wussed out. I ordered the starter set. I really would like a plant of each genere, and it seemed like a good way to start out. I plan on buying a few more neps, and who knows, whatever catches my eye.

    I have a huge backyard, and I think with my local temps (New Orleans, very tropical) that I could make a nice outdoor cp garden. I need to do a lot more research before I attempt that though. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

    EDIT: Btw, thank you all for the kind welcome.

    Hello Casper,

    welcome to the forums, you chose the right forum to come to. Everyone here answers questions with fantastic knowledge and kindness.

    As for an outdoor CP bog garden I don't think there is much of a winter in Louisana, almost all CP's need a dormancy period. But I could be wrong I am no expert, their may be a way to do it. From what I've heard the bog gardens are a lot of work too, it would be fun to have one though, I wish I could have one.

    Good luck with all your new plants coming [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I am not sure if you know this yet but the most important thing is to only water them with distilled, reverse osmosis, or rain water. Tap water will kill them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Hi Casper, and welcome!
    New Orleans, eh? How much winter do you get? That will dictate what kind of plants you can have in an outdoor garden. You will probubly be able to plant most sarracenia (pitcher plants). I'll hold off on any other musings until I hear more about your average winter... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Our winter is very odd, it ranges greatly from 40 degrees to 70ish through the winter. Basically, you have to open the door in the morning to see if you need to wear shorts, or bundle up. It is not un-common for us to be able to wear short sleeved shirts on Christmas day. We rarely get hard freezes (maybe 1 every 3-4 years)

    So in short, the temp is anything but constant in the winter, gets bitterly cold when the cold fronts move down, and warms up a tad when they move out (yes, 40 degrees is bitterly cold to us, in the last 5 years it has snowed once, and the gov. shut down the city because of an inch of snow)

    Wow. 40 is cold? wimp. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Try D. capensis. You can leave that outside all year long in that kind of weather, and they can take your occaisional hard freeze with no trouble. They'll sometimes die back to the root if it lasts a few days, but they bounce right back.

    And what do you know? They sell 'em here at Exotic Gardens....What a coinkydink! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
