Hello everybody, my name is Jennifer and I live in Savannah, Ga. I am new to CP's but I am an avid orchidist. Although I am a novice this is my 3rd year growing VFT, though I am ashamed to admit I had no idea they were a NC native. What really sparked my new obsession was being given a copy of the new revised edition of "The Savage Garden", from reading I discovered a whole new world of wonderful plants to cultivate. I am just beginning but I am having so much fun, I have in recent weeks acquired a few plants, with which I plan to start a mini bog soon in one of those little pools. I also took a trip to the Okefenokee wildlife refuge to see some plants in the wild, which was a special trip because I grew up very close to there and I never knew how wonderful that place was, also another shame, lol.
Altogether I am just growing a few species and a few hybrids of Sarracenia, Drosera, And Dionea, but I am hoping to get some pings soon and maybe one Nepenthes for those palmetto bugs we have flying around here in the summer, but that is for next year. Right now my focus is on acquiring some good plants and getting my hands dirty with my new bog, and learning to grow Sarracenia and Drosera from seed, as these are my favorite species.
I appreciate all the knowledge you guys have to share and I look forward to learning from ya'll.
