    Newbie from Georgia

    Happy New Years to everyone. I found this sight while seaching CP and terrariums. I've been interested in CP for some years now and have attempted a CP bog garden several years ago but failed due the drought in GA. Santa brough me a small H Potter terrarium so I started looking at keeping a small collection of CPs in the terrarium in my office window that faces the SE.

    I've spent quite a few hours rereading "The Savage Garden" and researching on the internet. To say the least there is a lot of information out there.

    So I've jumped in with several plants.

    Utricularia sandersonii
    Utricularia bisquamata
    Drosera Madagascarenisis
    Drosera Intermedia "Cuba"

    Of course it is a learning process. I did unfortantely buy Miracle Grow perlite and peat moss, but did order some New Zealand LFS. I mixed that with some cactus mix (shreaded bark, lava rock, sand, perlite, peat moss). Sure hope it works.

    Besides my interest in CP, I've been keeping a saltwater reef tank in one size or another for over 17 years now. I do have an interest in orchids but have not been very successful long term.

    So maybe it's time to think about converting my SW tank to a terrarium for CPs and orchids!
