    Hello from South Florida

    Hello all,

    Just recently joined the forum, though I've been lurking for a while. Started growing cps about a year ago, and now have a set of Nepenthes and am putting in an in ground bog for VFT, sarricenia, and sundews. I'm located about fifteen miles north of Miami.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum, I'd like to say I could guess where you are but so many people have so many different borders for what Miami is, some see Miami as downtown, some see Miami as Miami Dade county haha. In any case feel free to ask any questions you may have, also, do you mind me asking what sundews you want to put in the ground?

    Welcome to the forum! I'm a newbie with CP's, as well. I've been growing nepenthes primarily for two years now. I'm thinking of trying some sundews this year.
    I had family that lived in Coral Springs, FL not too far from Miami, FL.

    Hey thanks all! I live in Coral Springs, actually, in south Broward County. I'm not used to anyone knowing where that is though!

    I only have a few dews - capillaris, a couple filiiformis ( tracyi, filiiformis red, and Florida All-red), and one aliceae that doesn't seem to be doing well. It's in a tray now, and it's seemed to stop growing and lost most of its leaves. I'm hoping that's just dormancy - the bud seems intact - but it's my first winter with it so who knows.

    The bog will be mostly sarricenia. I've tried some pings but killed most of them. Too much sun, I think.

    Hmm aliciae doesn't go dormant. Show us a picture, maybe we can figure it out. Yeah I know where it is haha but it's true, no one knows anything except Miami

    Thanks! Here are the pictures. The plant was green and perfect when I got it. Turned red, had good dew, then slowly started to look like this:
