    Unhappy

    I've been growing CP for a few years now, but I've had to keep my numbers limited- until now. So, I'm turning to you guys now to give me some suggestions for what to grow next, CP you've had good experience with growing, or ones you just think are cool. I live in California, 2 minutes from the ocean, so I get plenty of sunshine, and plenty of fog, but I'm open to using growlights. My only constraint is that you please not suggest plants so hard to grow that I would come to suspect of being the anti-christ [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]. Thanks a lot in advance, I've been lurking this forum for months but I'm glad to have finally joined. If you need any more information, I'd be oblidged to supply.

    welcome!

    First off, where in california are you? I'm in monterey county...

    I would go with nepenthes albomargiana, nepenthes sanguinea, nepenthes rhombucaulis, drosera capensis, drosera slakii, pinguicula esseriana, pinguicula morensis, pinguicula sethos, and utricularia livida, just to name a few [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Spec is right. Coastal California is good for a huge variety of cps. Outdoors you can grow Sarracenia of all sorts, vfts, terrestrial utricularia, and most of the temperate and semitropical drosera. Indoors, under cheap fluorescent grow lights, you can grow most any hardy nepenthes, and almost any drosera. I love the nepenthes, personally, and grow lots of them here in San Francisco.

    Welcome...glad you came out of the Lurkers Fog. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I say go crazy and expand into everything. You will anyway. The more space you have, the more plants you get. Even when you DON'T have any space...you get more plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I'm a drosera fan so I recommend any of them...but I love all my CPs. Each are fascinating in their own way.

    Good luck, join in and have fun. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Well Spec, I suppose you're right, Monterey is more like a half hour or 45 minutes from here (I can actually see it from the beach), I have poor geography skills [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]. Thank you for pointing out that website to me, I'd sure love to attend one some time. It doesn't matter that I'm a young'un does it? I don't see why it would, but I could see that some people wouldn't want 15 year olds all over the place.
