    Pretty new to CPs

    Well to introduce myself, i am Kristoffer, Kris, or Kristoff, whichever you please.
    i am 16, but love growing my CPs, they have given me a great hobby.
    i am into music and art. I draw, play guitar, keyboard, and drums
    I do play Video Games on my spare time when im not busy with school or my plants
    and i live in Washington State. Not much else to really say i guess. not that wouldnt get into serious personal life stuff. but onto something else eh?


    ive had venus flytraps while i was younger, all died rather quickly as im sure most VFTs did with any kid at that age
    Now im growing VFTs and Pitcher Plants
    only for a couple of months but nothing has died yet! hahahah
    I have a typical VFT which is ready for division in spring, probably into about 4 plants
    i have 2 Akai Ryu VFTs which i purchased from Hirts Gardens(never buy from them, they arrived nearly dead but i seem to have pulled them back)
    and i have an incredibly healthy Dentate VFT, i am very proud of this one
    my Pitcher Plant, which is also ready for division, is what i believe to be an S. Judith Hindle
    I have my Typical VFT and my Akai Ryus in a relatively small 2 1/2 gallon aquarium, filled half way with Shagnum Peat moss and Perlite, with a 2:1 ratio.
    and my Dentate and Pitcher plant are my newest additions
    both sitting in a tray infront of the aquarium.
    Being that it gets incredibly cold here in WA i figured it best to grow them all indoors until spring.
    i am using a Reptile UVB which seems to be doing the job rather well
    it is a full spectrum light
    not quite sure of its lumuns or w.e
    but i also have them near a window.i generally feed them spiders that i find but i have purchased phoenix worms recently. i have only fed one phoenix worm to each plant to see how it would react
    what are everyones views on those?

    I just did a quick search and there's a forum member named Homer (League) who hails from the same town as you. He's quite an experienced grower, so ya may wannna consider hooking up with him.
