    New to Cp's

    Hey guys. I was browsing through some magazine and saw a venus fly trap and thought to myself, "holy crap, that'd be an awesome little pet".

    A few hours later I'm on here checking some stuff out. Anyone know of some good resourceful CP websites? I'm looking for sites (not very successfully) on finding different species and types of cp's, basic how to's on planting, and general care info. This way I won't be one of those "newbs" that comes here and floods the boards with ?'s that have been asked a hundred times.

    Thanks

    www.nepenthesaroundthehouse.com is a great site. I can't help you with the other genera, since I don't grow them.

    Welcome to TF! I would also recomment purchasing a copy of Savage Garden. This book covers the "lion's share" of species and hybrids, along with pictures and varieties of cultivating methods, also covering the basic newbie questions.

    savage garden is your BIBLE!
    You're only allowed to link to one vendor, and that's www.flytrapshop.com . Flytraps go dormant in the winter though as you might have found out, so the best time to get one of those would be sometime in spring. Keep an eye on the trading section of the forum, sometimes there are giveaways there. Nepenthes are really cool, check out that site phissionkorps linked to. There's a section of the site also that might just help you find some places to buy CPs too.

    Welcome! THIS site is a great resource.

    And FlyTrapShop.com, who supports this forum, is an excellent place for good healthy flytraps and other CPs. Its nothing like getting your plants from someone who has personally grown them for many many years so they know how to take care of them.
