    New Grower

    Hello everyone -

    I will keep this short, as I just lost a post I spent 5 minutes typing. Just ordered the following plants to start me off:

    D muscipula
    D. adelae
    D. capensis
    D. binata ssp. multifida
    D. filiformis var filiformis "Florida Giant"
    P. agnata

    I am fairly new to growing, so any tips for a newbie would be much appreciated. I purchased a 5 shelf unit from Lowes today that has 48" shelves, so I will be hanging 4 T12 bulbs per shelf (two fixtures). One thing I need help on... I have yet to figure out how to hang the fixtures to the shelving... I am not exactly mechanically inclined nor do I have too much experience. Again, any advice on my project or plant selection would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Phil

    Dude, run away now. Once you get in you never get out. It's like a drug.

    Thanks everyone for the greetings! As far as the flytrap I know they can be successfully grown inside. In fact, there are a few people on here that have deep red traps on the regular variety by indoor lighting. BUT, once I get D. filiformis I will also get another flytrap and that one will be outdoors. I want to compare the growth rate of indoor vs outdoor.

    Oh yes, does anyone know where I can find D. regia? Also, I have heard mixed things about this plant. Some say it grows for them, others say it dies for them

    JMurphy, you are so right dude... it is already an addiction and my plants haven't even arrived...

    I'll post pics soon once everything is up and running!
