    As of now I have no CPs , I'm working on getting some. I bought some seeds off ebay but out of 40 only like 8 made it here uncrushed (waste of money and time) . I'll be buying a few VFTs in the next week or so I hope.

    As far as other pets and hobbies I'm into quite a bit. I enjoy insects, reptiles and all the household pets. I'm starting to venture into plant life now .

    I've had retiples, small animals, cats and all the usual stuff since I was a kid.

    So if anyone has any suggestions for a good noob plant let me know.

    I'm also thinking of getting some Mantids now thanks to Adam!!!

    I got a two year old daughter who is also amazed by animals/bugs so it's great to share it with her and not just myself now.

    Well any other questions feel free to ask.

    Yeah, unfortunately buying seeds is not the best investment for people who are new to the hobby; especially off ebay. Too much time invested and not enough reward. It's much better to buy some live adult plants to get the immediate gratification instead of waiting several years.

    May I suggest Andrew's store? He has a lot of good beginner plants and they are all great quality. The customer care and service is outstanding, too.

    And finally, welcome to the forums!
