    Hello from NYC

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to the forum, but have been lurking for a little while now. My partner and I have been growing CPs for about 8 months. We started off with a few experimental plants, and after having a lot of success with those our collection has grown rather quickly. We now have 2 shelves of grow lights, a lowland Nepenthes terrarium as well as several plants on our windowsill and balcony - quite a lot for an apartment in NYC. I'm completely addicted to these fascinating plants. My main interests are currently Drosera and Neps, but I find my interest in different genera changes rather frequently (newbie syndrome?). I hope to set up a Heli terrarium when space and money allow, as well as a petiolaris-complex Drosera terrarium. We also grow a variety of other houseplants, my favorite of which are Hoyas (we currently have 7 species). I've been minimally active on some of the other forums, but figured I'd check this one out as well since it seems quite active.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Welcome!!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
