    Talking Very Newbie!

    My name is Katrina and I am a newbie both to this group and to CPs. I bought my first Dionaea 6 months ago and with a little prayer and a whole lot of Barry Rice's CP FAQs, my little one has survived my learning. Of course, I was one of the bad people who didn't do the research before they leapt into this challenge and boy when I got home and started reading about them I realized what I got myself into hahaha HOWEVER, this has been one of the most exciting things I have ever done (Sad isn't it) and I so look forward to this challenge that I added a new VFT to the family and have been looking into different CPs to bring into our home (However, this will take time. I don't wanna get in over my head and frankly, I dont think my husband finds them QUITE as wonderful as I DO HAHAHA).

    Can't wait to meet and learn from you all.

    Katrina from Virginia.

    I thank you all for the very wonderful and warm welcome. My friends have already told me that they can see this becoming an obscession and I truly hope it does. At least it is one that is worthy

    Glider~ I can see how this could be a black hole. I know I was so happy when my first came out of dormancy that I was practically floating when I got the second. :P I was looking hard at some of the seeds online

    Adnedarn~ YES! I have spent so much time reading his site that I actually emailed him and told him that the URL to his site should be printed on every VFT sold in the world (I got mine at Walmart and now I see why so many die... If people follow their instructions... *Sigh*) That site is probably the main reason mine survive hehehe

    Bugweed~ That is wonderful and I hope that someday I can be a contributor of both seeds and knowledge to others

    Thanks again all!
