    Hello

    So, I was shopping at Lowes early last month. I go cruising past the tropical plants, and I see these little cubes on clearance. The plants werent in great shape but I figured what the heck. So for 10 bucks I came home with a S. rubra, N. ventricosa(I think), a VFT and D. adelae(I think). So I came home and got online to see how to take care of them and I found you guys. And here I thought that I could put all of these plants in my little 3 gallon aquarium....silly me All plants have been repotted. Currently my S. rubra is sitting in the window until it warms up outside. My VFT is sitting under its own lamp on top of the dishwasher and the Nep and the Drosera are in the 3 gal. I realize that the 3gal is gonna get too small very quickly, I have a 10 gal that currently has baby cories(fish) in it, as soon as the are big enough to go into my community tank I will clean it out and switch it to a plant tank. All plants are growing, pitchering, dewing. And now I am completely obsessed. And I can't wait to increase my collection. I wanted to register so I could say thank you all for your help. THANKS!!

    Welcome home, Stacker! Yes, they are an addiction. I love it! You will find the folks here to be helpful, and willing to give plants at the drop of a hat. Some VERY knowledgable people here like Joseph Clemens, Philcula, Tony Paroubek, and one mean curmudgeon by the name of Ozzy! Watch your step with him! He may lure you to North Carolina for a personal tour of VFT land! Welcome!!!!

    Yeah, and there is some guy that goes by the name of Bugweed that's forgotten more about CPs than I'll ever learn...

    Thanks for the welcome Bugweed. This forum has been so informative, I've done alot of trolling thru the older threads and still theres more info. How cool to live where there are CPs in the wild. I'm always looking for a reason to road trip.
