    You could go into botany and taxonomy and study CPs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Maybe you will be the one to figure out the taxonomic nightmare of some droserae.

    There is also horticulture...maybe you could run your own nursery.

    Good luck!

    I think it would be really cool to start a CP landscaping company! Everything would have to be in in the ground bogs. Mixes of sarrs, vfts, sundews and ultrics could be put in the bogs. You would have to teach the customers how take care of the cps since they are higher maintenance than shrubs and bushes or you could also offer a service where the company comes out once or twice a week and takes care of them. I think this could be a possible business!

    I'm looking for 2 gardeners right now and apart from about a million orchids I also have some Nepenthes. Unfortunately the pay isn't too good!

    Cheers, Troy.

    You can design the world's first turn-key, automated highland Nepenthes terrarium. Hopefully as big as Joachim's, http://home.arcor.de/j.danz/Terrarium.jpg . I'll be your first customer. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
