    eddy,
    You need to worry about three things, light, water, and soil. If you buy a potted plant, you don't need to worry about soil right away. So, make sure you have adequate lighting to grow them indoors, or proper sunlight (generally lots) for outdoor growing. The next thing is water. Tap water usually doesn't work. You need to use either distilled water, rain water, or water filtered through a reverse osmosis filter. From there, it's pretty easy.

    Browse the forums here for more information than you could possibly need. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Oh, and they really do have great VFTs on this site!

    moving to the general discussion area since it doesn't really belong in the trade section.

    Hello Eddy

    Welcome to the forums. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Exotic gardens has the perfect selection of plants for those just getting their feet wet in CPs.

    Most people start with a VFT but you can start with anything really. There is a forum dedicated to each type of plant so you can get expert advice for anything you might want to try.

    If you are growing a VFT indoors, you'll need a very bright/sunny window or good artificial light (fluorescents). The don't have a high humidity requirement so you don't HAVE to have terrariums and such. And yes, pure water is a must.

    It helps to know where someone lives to know the growing environment though.

    Welcome aboard. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
