    Hello everyone!

    I'm Kevin and I live in New Albany, Indiana (which is in the southern part of Indiana). I've been growing carnivorous plants for about four months or so. My love affair began as a child, when I massacred many venus flytraps. About four months ago, I decided to pick up a purple pitcher plant from a local nursery and learn how to actually care for it.

    Since then, I've obtained about six plants. I have a cape sundew, a butterwort (primuliflora), two Sarracenias (purpurea and rubra x psittacina), and two Nepenthes (sanguinaea and rafflesiana). I hope to expand my collection soon! I have to say that the Nepenthes are my favorites, though!

    Well... thanks for reading!

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    glider14: Ah, how cool! And I thought no one here would be within a 500 mile radius from where I live.

    Capensis: Yeah, that is my rubra x psittacina. Thank you!

    And to everyone else, thanks for welcoming me!
