    New to the addictive world of cps!

    Hi everyone. I'm Kathy and I'm growing carnivorous plants here in Montana, the arctic tundra of the United States! It's great to hear there are others out there addicted to these amazing plants. I'm hoping with the cool summer nights we have here I might be able to grow some of the more challenging cps. I look forward to reading everyone's posts!
    Thanks for your time and as always....happy growing!

    Welcome to the maddness. I slipped quietly into the world of cps via orchids..got some sundews to help control the fungus gnats on the orchid racks. What cps do you grow already?

    Big Sky Country? Welcome to TF! Fortunately, many plants can grow inside, on window sills or artificial lighting, if and when outside growing is prohibitive. What do you have right now and what are you looking to grow?

    Growing in Montana

    Thanks for all the replies! I started getting plants back in September. I started with some standard Venus fly traps a few Sarracenia varieties like purpurea. Then I really started buying.... Pinguicula was next John rizzi and laueana. I have three nepenthes plants. N. Bicalcarata, N.Hamata x platychila and N. Mirabilis var globosa. I have some drosera like spathulata, alicia, binata, prolifera, adelae and I just noticed my drosera regia seeds have sprouted! I have two cephalotus follicularis one a hummers giant and last two heliamphora one minor the other heterodoxa x minor. I found myself wanting one of every type! Oh I'm soooooooo addicted! My last addition is a dewy pine which I just got. So that sums it up basically. Oh, just noticed my Bybis liniflora seeds germinated. That is me summed up. Sorry for not listing my plants, I'm sure that would have been much easier to read! So far everything has been going good. I've been fighting with the aphids on my Venus fly traps but I think I am starting to win the war!
