    Hello! I just wanted to share with you some of my CP. I am in Puerto Rico, as some of you may know, in the Caribbean. Since I started to cultivate CP most of people told me that it was imposible to cultivate Sarracenia, Venus Frlytraps, and other CP here in the Caribbean. Well, they are wrong. I have, with lots of efforts and cares, but I have, and with success.

    Here is a part of my collection. This is my green-house. It is a saran green-house that only have a top, with no wall. And I think my Cp are just doing well. My Sarracenia and VFT have created winted leaves and achieve dormancy with no problem, though I must accept that this winter have been a very cold here. But I have cultivate my CP.

    Here is what I call CP Shrine:


    Here is a closser look to some of the pots:
    Sarracenia:


    Sarracenia, VFT and others:


    Sarracenia, Sundews, and behind is a Darlingtonia, which I do believe is dead, it is the only one that did not survived.


    Here you see my Botterwort, I do not know which species is, more Sarracenia, and others:


    And some of my Nepenthes, which is not something extraoridnary that they are fine, becuase they have here their idoneous climate... but I just wanted you to see them;-)


    Since I also cultivate Bonsai I use the Bonsai pots to cultivate CP, and they seem to love it. Obviously most of them have water-trays.

    Let me know what do you guys think.

    if I may make one small suggestion, You might want to put the sarracenia into deeper pots, because they have deep roots, just a tiny suggestion

    I use some Bonsai pots as well for some of my shallower rooted CP's, like Utricularia for example.

    What do you do for dormancy requirements?
