Howdy ho folks!
Been lurking around for quite a while and decided to register seeing how I FINALLY managed to find some CPs in these parts, so I figured I'd take a few mins and introduce myself
24 yr old bloke majoring in English and computer science (6 exams to go and I'm done wooo!!!), living in Croatia, a nice little country on the Mediterranean. Far as CPs go though, the situation is anything but lol.
I've been literally scourging every flower shop and garden centre for weeks trying to get my hands on some CPs and finally managed to find some today. The two venus flytraps one garden centre got in their "Carnivorous Mix" tray were sold already though. Go figure, I've been dying to get some since the climate here is perfect for outdoor growing of VFTs and Sarracenias.
But in any case, I managed to add two droseras, a ping, and some sarrs to my previously lonely bug hunter - nep x ventrata. Doesn't take much to make an enthusiast like me happy
The Sarracenias and the ping are looking... I guess you could say decent considering they've been outdoors on a shelf in full shade 24/7 potted in what looked like dripping wet, garden humus, probably watered with tap water :/
Droseras on the other hand are touch and go sadly. Next to no dew on the leaves and they are looking pretty bad. I'm getting some sphagnum next week so here's to hoping they pull through until then.
Gonna post some pics over at the ID forum, since I sure could use a hand IDing the bunch.
Well so much from me for now, pleasure to be here
Wish me luck D:
