    Iowa City, Iowa

    Hello everybody I am from Iowa and am an orchid enthusiast turned CP enthusiast. I have grown plants all my life, but this will be my first year with CP's. Thanks for looking.
    Here are a few pics of my bog pots in October 2012




    Here are some dews around the same time.




    Drosera adelae.


    Drosera spatulata - Fraser Island.


    Drosera binata multifida 'extrema'-crown and various other Drosera including: 'albino' x aliciea, capensis-red, baby 'multifida', spatulata, spatulata 'tamlin'.


    Pinguicula primuliflora and Drosera spatulata-typical(purple flower) also there is a tiny Drosera capensis.


    Here is Pinguicula primuliflora and Drosera tokaiensis. In an experiment I "planted" segments of tokaiensis flower stalk in the top of the photo. (this quick experiment yielded half a dozen plants)


    These little gems came as: Drosera communis var. breviscapa(2) and Drosera spatulata 'Tamlin'.(in the middle)


    This is my tent-greenhouse. The Nepenthes on the top shelf is X Miranda, then the dews and a few nep cuttings on the next shelf, and the bottom two shelves are all orchids.

    Welcome! If you are already caring for orchids, you have a good start to generating conditions that a lot of CPs need!

    awesome! i'm from CR and there's usually a gathering in the midwest once a year (near chicago or thereabouts). maybe we can get a gathering going in iowa now that there are 4 of us, or so

    anyway, i'm sure we'll be able to hook you up with some dews

    good luck with the minibog. i want to try that too, in the near future.
