    Greetings from New Haven!

    Hello All,

    After a very long hiatus (I grew CPs on my windowsill as a kid and wanted to be a botanist... but somehow ended up teaching French for a living ), I've rekindled my passion for carnivorous plants. I live in New Haven, CT and am lucky to have two very big, very sunny southwest-facing windows. So far, I'm growing a few nepenthes, pygmy sundews, and utricularia. The latter may not be the most awe-inspiring CP, but I'm absolutely enthralled by their diminutive size, diversity, and beautiful flowers. I'd love to connect with other utric-lovers and anyone growing anything on windowsills in conditions similar to mine here on the Connecticut shoreline.

    Glad to have found this forum!

    ~Chris

    Thanks! He's adorable, but also the ringleader of the local deforestation crew... thankfully he hasn't shown any interest in my CPs. Yet.
