    hey, how's it going?

    I'm Mike. I live in Maine with my lovely wife and almost 11 month old daughter Olivia.

    I'm considering making carnivorous plants a hobby and am looking forward to picking your brains about them.

    I'd like to get a terrarium going with bugs and whatnot in there.

    see ya on the forum.

    Some good starter nepenthes are ventricosa, ventricosa x maxima ('Red Leopard'). Sanguinea and ventrata (ventricosa x alata). Some good starter sundews (drosera) are binata, capensis, spatulata and adelae.

    Welcome aboard, Mike. If by making CPs a hobby you mean becoming obsessed, then you found the right place. While terrariums can look nice, I don't recommend them unless you need it for species that need more TLC.

    Any specific direction you want to head in terms of plants you like? A little of this and a little of that? lol.

    By the way, I love your avatar. Storm trooper Uncle Sam... He wants me!
