    cyclopse Hello from Buffalo!

    Hey all! I have heard a lot of great things about this forum so I decided to come pop in and say hello. My name is Matt and I live in Buffalo, NY. Along with my girlfriend, I run our local carnivorous plant club. I am getting my masters in botany and also run my own plant blog on the side. I love anything and everything plant related. I can't get enough. I started keeping carnivores about a year and a half ago and I really enjoy them a lot. I don't have much of a collection, mainly a couple cape sundews, a mexican butterwort, and a few Sarracenian pitchers. I love hiking and finding native plants. I have had the fortune of being able to explore many local bogs, fens and wetlands around the world and see many carnivorous species in the wild. Nothing comes close to that in my opinion. My favorite CPs would have to be the butterworts. I can't get enough of those little wonders. Along with CPs I also am a bit of an orchid, fern, and begonia nut. I love house plants almost as much as I love native plants. They really help me get through our long and dreary winters :P Welp that about does it. I hope to learn a lot here!

    Cheers,
    Matt

    sounds like you have things well under control, but if you need any suggestions for
    dormancy for VFT's and Sarracenia, for our climate, I have some write-ups on my webpage..
