    Hi from Trinidad

    Hey folks,

    I'm from Trinidad, of the twin island country of Trinidad and Tobago located in the West Indies (Caribbean)... nice warm country where we only have two main seasons: Dry season and Rainy season.

    I recently joined Terraforums mostly because growing carnivorous plants is pretty new to me and I LOVE carnivorous plants! I hope to learn as much as I can to grow these carnivorous plants in my tropical climate. I know some of them like the VFTs and Sarracenias may need a cold stratification once a year but I'll see how it goes (I guess a fridge will come in handy for something other than food). I've always been fascinated and have always wanted to try my hand at growing these amazing plants.

    I've been growing them since Oct 2012 and since then I've managed to grow 16 different Droseras (18 if you count the different color forms for D. capensis ), 3 Nepenthes , Sarracenia leucophylla, and a bunch of different Venus Fly Traps all from seeds. I also have 4 Nepenthes plants that I bought from a vendor.

    Hope you guys and gals can help out a Trini-in-need of advice every now and again

    Hello and welcome to Terraforums.

    If you go into your profile you should see a panel for Your Albums on the left side. If you have a Thank You "green" membership you will have more album space.

    Or you can host your photos here:
    http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...ur-photos-here

    or any of the many image hosting services (Photobucket, flickr, imageshack etc.)
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
