    I'm guessing you were/are in marching band.

    It's cheaper, for now. I spent $210 on a single plant this year, so it can get pricey.

    Stick around for a while- it could cost more than a dog. I have dumped a couple grand into my collection.
    Don't let them scare you off . You can very easily have a good size collection without investing incredible amounts of money (especially with the people and resources on this forum). They are referring to some of the more advanced stages of this infection we call cp collecting. The most expensive parts of the hobby are usually ordering super rare plants and the components (terrariums, greenhouses, fans, heaters, coolers...) to care for them.

    Welcome to the hobby!

    I got these 2 Death Cube VFTs from lowes they didn't have any traps just green leaves. I think I might have been successful in saving the little guys. They're planted in 80% LFS and 20% perlite. They both are showing signs of new growth coming from the center

    LFS is usually too dense for VFT's, a mix with peat and perlite would likely be better for them in the long run.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
