    New to and from Hawaii ;)

    Hi everyone

    Im new to this forum, and new to Hawaii as well

    My husband and I will be buying a house sometime during 2011, and at that point I will begin my dream garden.
    A friend of mine from another forum invited me here so I could see which CPs would grow here, so here I am

    Its nice to meet everyone in advance

    Welcome!

    Being from hawaii, you automatically have the abillity to grow some truely awesome Nepenthes outside year round.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Welcome!

    Welcome!

    Wish I were in Hawaii too!
    (Where were you before?)

    Also... what kinds of CP's do you have?
    & What are you hoping to grow?

    Again, welcome!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Thank you

    I was in Orange County California before, but my husband go tlaid off from his job and couldnt find another one in California, so he accepted a job offer in Hawaii and now were here

    I dont have any CPs, or any of the plants I had in California, Hawaii does not allow plants to be shipped here due to the islands small size and the ease with which invasive species take over.

    Im hoping to grow anything I can get ;D

    Thanks again

    Welcome to the forum!
    Thank you, it was a free pic from a stock photo place online

    So far we have purchased 3 orchids, and one was given to us from hubbys office.
    I removed them from their pots last week and placed them in wooden baskets so they would feel more at home, and a neighbor gave me some little ones she had spontaneously growing in her yard, so I mounted them on a piece of wood and they seem very happy with that

    Thank you for the welcome

    Ok, Im hooked.

    I just got done looking at all the photo threads for each family (?) of CPs, and I have decided I want them ALL!

    The tall beautiful pitcher plants are amazing, Ill bet you guys dont have any bug problems at ALL

    The dewy ones are just beautiful, and the flowers are incredible on all species of CPs, especially the orchid like ones.

    Im in awe.

    I mean WOW!

    Now I need to find a CP grower on Oahu....

    ;D

    ZZ - Hi, and welcome. I think I can help you out on this one. I live in Mililani and would love to help you get started on your CP collection (non CPs too if you are interested). Please PM me and we will set something up.
