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?
