    Hellooo from California!

    Being sociophobic, I felt that I need to take up a hobby... so, here I am! Please guide me.

    I'm a super noob at CP plants and just started about 2 months ago because my puppy's crap (literally) keeps bringing all types of flies into my backyard and eventually those flies brought everyone and their moms... then my house turned into a fly farm. Well not really to that extent but... Anyway! I bought my first CP then: a Dente VFT. I was so disappointed with how small it was. I wanted something that would be like the piranha plant in Mario that would ferociously eat those pesky things I can never EVER swap. But either way, I fell in love with the VFT and their cute little "jaws", then got researching and eventually fell in love with the sundews, then the pitcher plants.

    I currently bought some seeds to test out my luck and satisfy the inner scientist in me. While I'm waiting on that, I'm attempting to build a small greenhouse in the backyard myself so my puppy wouldn't get into my stuff and poop in my plants.

    Currently, I am hoping to grow some types of drosera, nepenthes, and dionaea, and also experiment using gibberellic acid. I would love to get more seeds and plants, but currently, taking up this hobby is burning a hole through my wallet. (Yes, I can hear this in my head: "In due time, my young padawan...")

    I hope to be active on the forum and post pictures as they progress. Hopefully I'm doing things right! ...But if not, I would appreciate your advice on doing it the right way with whatever tips and tricks you have... which has worked for you in the past... hopefully.

    Well, I'm definitely looking forward to talking to you guys and forcing you to become my friends! Till then. (^.^)v

    Hahaha, scientist-wannabe is more like it. In the name of science, I must experiment!

    @Mato: Yes... the puppy scat... it's lethal. His "scat" pretty much killed all the grass at the corner he always pees at. So I must keep him away from my new babies!

    @Iwest: Wow, Burlingame. That's pretty close! I use to live in Daly City, but now moved to Richmond-ish area. (the not-so-ghetto side... I'd like to think..)

    @pebes: Another bay area member! Ty for the welcome!
