    Hello from North Carolina!

    Greetings to all!

    I've been lurking on here for a few weeks, and I finally decided to go public and get registered. I started researching CPs a few months ago. Since then, I have managed to amass a modest but growing collection of plants, the majority of which are Nepenthes. I've never had much luck with gardening before this, but I do believe I've found my botanical niche in growing cps. And watching the new leaves unfurl and the new pitchers inflate is just so mind-bogglingly satisfying!

    Anyway, I just wanted to do the polite thing and introduce myself.
    My name is Cassandra, by the way.

    —And what a wonderful hobby it is!

    Welcome to the forum.
    I hope you find it fun and informative to help gain
    better understanding on growing carnivorous plants.

    Might I also add, that you are very lucky to live in a state native
    to carnivorous plants. You might find:

    Sarracenia : varieties of flava (trumpet pitcher), purpurea (southern/mountain ssp. venosa);
    (Pitcher plants) also the rubra species, minor. (hooded pitcher plant) You may even find the
    endangered and increasingly rare oreophila.

    Drosera: rotundifolia, capillaris, intermedia, filiformis, and brevifolia
    (Sundews)

    Pinguicula: pumila, lutea, and caerulea
    (Butterworts)

    You also can find utricularia (Bladderworts)

    —And last, but certainly not least:
    Dionaea (Venus flytrap)

    Now aren't you just lucky!

    Happy Growing!
    -Jack

    Jack--That's so cool! I knew NC was the home of Venus Flytraps, but I had no idea we had so much diversity! I feel very lucky indeed.

    theyellowdart-- I live near Raleigh in the northern Piedmont region.
