    Smile Returning to CPs

    Hi all!

    I've grown carnivorous plants (in their hundreds—mainly Utricularia, Sarracenia, Drosera) for 10+ years—but that's a while ago.
    In 2008, I had to give up my large collection... *sniff*.
    I'm getting back into it now, although I don't think I'll be able to go as crazy again as I used to.

    I was in the CP listserv back in the day (anyone remember that?), and when I tried to sign up to the list again a few months back, I discovered that all the action seems to have moved here instead in recent years. So, OK, I'll give it a try!

    I'm hoping to reconnect with some old friends online, and make new ones.

    I've got a few nice Sarracenias for a start, including some four month old Sarr seedlings I started. I'll post a grow list when there's a point to it.
    Looking for a few select Utricularia and Drosera now, perhaps a couple of pings and a ceph.
    You know, taking it easy...

    Cheers,
    Marcus

    Welcome back and welcome aboard. We've got a great group of local New England growers as well. You should check out the NECPS sometime.

    I joined the NECPS last year, but I still have to make it to the first meeting.
    When I first moved to Connecticut, Barry Rice told me what a great group the NECPS is.
    I hope I'll make it to my first meeting soon!

    Cthul- where is the show this year? In Boston at the umm...what's it called convention center

    Best of luck getting back into plants (anything plant related) can be addicting and I'm sure your moderate collection plans will soon be over ridden with your obsession to get more and more to study and watch grow and enjoy aswell as share with others! I wish u the best goodluck and happy growing

    Thanks, KAT!
    You won't be surprised to hear that you're not the first person to tell me that...
