    Technically I'm from New York, but then so are 3/4 of the rest of Virginia [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]. I've got 3 leucos and 3 purps, 3 pots of sundews and a pot of Vfts that I grow outside in spring/summer/fall, but cooler indoor locations are necessary in the winter when temps drop to freezing and below. At least that's the case over in Roanoke, I'm sure conditions in Richmond would be okay for nearly year-round outdoor growth. Back me up here, PlantAKiss.

    I'm from NC, but I have relocated to OH for a short time. I can't wait to get back to the south.

    i live in N. Texas. My balcony faces a direction where it only gets REALLY direct sunlight for several hours in the morning (they're shaded during the hottest part of the day, which still made me nervous on those 100 degrees + days). My flytraps have done well outside last year. i just recently got some sundews and bladderworts (and red dragon vft) from someone... my first experience with them. think it would be a good idea to bring those inside when it really starts to get hot?

    Hi Y'awl! Ah ahm a proud Verginnian! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Ah live in tha' old Confederate capital city of Richmond, Verginya. Ah's located in the cultural "north of the rivah" (the rivah--as all good Verginnians know--being THE James River) which divides tha' city in half (gotta pay a gol' dern toll to get ta the other side!). Ah don't go to that thar Southside too much...it gives me tha' vapors! Ah live in genteel, green and gracious Ginter Park...Richmond's first suburb created by Major Lewis Ginter, far whom our Botanical Gardens are named.

    Richmond is ah historical city...we have more monuments to old dead Generals and militia men than you could throw a polecat at. Thar ever'whar! That deah man Patrick Henry gave his "Give me liberty or give me death" speech heyah in a little bittie white frame church up in yonder Church Hill. Edgar Allen Poe's home is heyah too...down near tha' rivah. Tennis great Arthur Ashe was born heyah but we didn't let him play on our tennis courts back then. Now all of a sudden he is a good ol' hometown boy and we've thrown HIS monument right thar in with the dead Generals and militiamen! Go figger! Actors Warren Beatty and Shirley McLaine are from heyah too but they don't seem to claim their Southern heritage. Ah wonder whah? ::scratches head::

    Ah don't much lahk mint jewleps, grits, chitlins, blackeyed peas or okra. Ah do mightily lahk a good country ham biscuit with redeye gravy, Brunswick stew and frahed chicken with mashed taters and gravy that will stick to your ribs.

    Ah love Verginnya...rollin' green hills, beautiful blue mountains, the beach, lots of woodlands and fields...its a very purdy place to live. But you sweat lahk a greasy pig in tha' summer. Mercy me...ahm forgittin my manners...men sweat, women "glow." [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    CPs grow well here. My temperates grow outside all year 'round. Some other CPs are out in the spring/summer/fall. Most tropicals are indoors in tanks or lighted shelving. VFTs do well as we are not that far from their native habitat. I have just about all types of CPs...they are scattered around everywhere inside and out.

    OK...I'm done. :::curtsy::: [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
