    My name is Kris, I am in my 20s (though how far into them... well, I'm just not mentally prepared to say... ) and yes... I am a rare female in a guy-dominated hoby. I am from a rural part of Oklahoma, in the US, and I generally like long nature walks, as long as there is a minimum of stinging insects.

    My hobies have included gardening (which I've done since my teens), tropical aquaria (which I've done since I was about 13, and still do), Saltwater aquaria (which I did for about five years), and raising exotic/rare plants. Some of my favourite "exotics" are the mandrakes which are severely endangered due to their low growth rate, and the encroaching of urban and sub-urban areas.

    I received my first CP about a month ago, and have been devouring all the information I can find on them since then... something pretty typical for me. I currently have seven plants, all of which appear to be doing either quite well, or about average. My Dentata VFT has produced three new traps in what seems like about a week... which leads me to believe there's more than one plant in there.

    I run my own business making and selling ceramics and other hand crafts, aimed toward the new-age/neopagan market. I also make more "average" things, which I sell at fairs and hope to begin selling over the internet.

    I am also an ordained (non-denominational) minister, who occasionally does things like house-blessings, and relationship counciling.

    I hope to be around for quite some time, because these plants are just too lovely to get tired of.

    (Currently Growing: VFT Typical, VFT Dentata, Cobra Lily, D. Adelae, S. Minor, Unknown Nepenthe)

    Hi and welcome!

    I am not surprised by a surge in growth for you right now - OK should just be entering the "growing season" for temperate CPs (VFT's, sars) right about now.

    Too bad my plants are still burried under snow! I have at least another month before mine start up.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Question

    Hi and welcome to the forums! If you post a pic of your uknown nep to the "Identify That Plant!" forum, we can take a shot at ID-ing it for you.

    @schloaty: You've got snow!? I'm in the middle of the Colorado mountains and don't have a single snowflake in my yard or any where else in the neighborhood. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Welcome, and get ready to lose your sanity here.... Umahahahahaha [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    An education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.
