    Cool Hi From Michigan

    Hi everyone,

    I just joined today and want to say hello. I live in Northern Michigan, specifically Cadillac.
    Anyway I have a venus flytrap, a couple of nepenthes, some venus flytrap seeds and purple pitcher plant seeds I am trying to start, along with a wife, 3 sons, two dogs, two spiders, and a couple of fish. I recently moved up here and if anyone knows of any interesting plant dealers in the area I would appreciate hearing about them.

    I have a question while I'm here and I'll post it elsewhere as well. I was looking out the window at the snow and my gears got to turning. If rainwater is good, why not snow? I could get a couple buckets of it and bring it in to thaw and plant water. What do you think. Don't worry I'll avoid the yellow stuff

    Cory

    Welcome to TF Cory, I used to milt snow by boiling it then put it into empty milk jugs. Takes some time but saves you money.

    Ahhhh...

    A fellow Michiganian CP grower! WELCOME!!!

    I've never tried using melted snow, but it's a good and simple idea.
