    Hello from the Central Coast of California

    Hi, I am Jerry and live in Santa Maria.
    I have some carnivorous plants: Heliamphora minor, Sarrencia purpurea,
    Sarrencia psittacina, and Darlingtonia californica plus a Venus Flytrap (I think it is still alive??).
    I have a BA in Botany from Humboldt State College, up in Northern California at Arcata. So you can bet that I have been growing all kinds of plants for years!!! My real loves are mosses and lycopodiums and selaginellas, of which I grow different species. I do have a bog and I have a journal on my bog. Here is a link:
    http://www.jsionline.freeservers.com/p1bog.html
    the bog is still filled with sedges but hopefully this year I can transplant some.
    My real interest in carnivorous is in Heliamphora. I am growing my two H. minor plants outside in full sun. I will have to make a journal to show you all. They are doing well!! I did get one of those fantastic H. sarrencoides but that plant is so tiny that I will be dead before it gets big!!! I think it is barely alive in my greenhouse but I really have alot to learn on raising the little seedlings!

    As long as you are terrestrial man and not extraterrestrial man, WELCOME!!!!!!! Feel free to browse wildly, and ask a million or two questions. Some folks here I suspect really know what they're talking about.

    Welcome to the forums, Jerry! We're both lucky to live in the great state of CA; we've got great weather to grow lots of goodies!

    Welcome to TF! Sounds like you have a nice breadth of experience. I did a quick look at your website and it looks good. I love the description of your encounter with "THE SPHAG!"
