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.
