    New Member, Starting terrarium fairy garden with daughter to interest her in plants

    Only CP is a flytrap that I bought her. I have never been a fan of plants until my grandma passed and I inherited her houseplants...now I've got them everywhere. I like the biological side of plants. I like learning native habitat so that I can match in vitro habitat to the plant. My...

    A Brazilian guy who is new to the forum

    Well, hello everyone. I am a relatively new grower from Brazil, I have been growing sundews (and only sundews, but I'm looking forward to expand my collection!) for 8 months now. I actually found this forum when I was looking for places to trade seeds, as my collection has not expanded in a...

    ScatterPants Mexican Pinguicula

    So I thought I'd start a thread of my recently started and still growing Pinguicula collection. It's modest for now but I could see it getting out of hand since I like them so much. There are pictures I took previously of these butterworts over on my introduction to Terraforums thread if you'd...

    The Plant: Artwork & Imagery

    - From the Great Jungles to the Vast Plains to the Ethereal Mountains - Hi, this is sorta my introduction to these forums. My name is Benyamin, I'm from The Netherlands. I used to have a pretty nice collection of the crazy monsters amongst the peaceful leafs. :) About ten years ago my...

    Goodyera pubescens

    Due to a mistake on my part, and amazing generosity on the part of the seller, I find myself with a few extra of this temperate terrestrial orchid. The genus Goodyera are mostly grown for their interesting foliage, like a temperate jewel orchid. The winner will receive 3 bare root plants. To...

    Formal Introduction

    I figured that if I wanted to start being more active on terraforums, it would be a good idea to formally introduce myself. My name is Ivan Lacroix and I am 15 years old. I started growing carnivorous plants when I was 11 when I first read a book about cps in my science class. Ever since then my...

    Hello from NJ

    Hey all. I'm Collin and I wanted to introduce myself here. I've been lurking for a while (there's a ton of information in this forum) and finally created a profile for the NASC benefit auction. I want to thank everyone involved; that auction was a ton of fun and a great way to get involved in...

    Tuberous Drosera

    After speaking with several members here among other growers, I have realized that there are more misconceptions about successfully growing these plants than I had thought. I wrote the care sheet below last year for the NECPS members to use as a guide for their cultivation and I hope that it can...

    I've been on this forum a couple of time but I suppose it's time for a somewhat formal introduction... So, my name is Danny and I'm addicted to carnivorous plants, especially nepenthes. I used to be a normal biology student with a small interested in carnivorous plants ( I grew a Venus Fly trap...

    Botany/horticulture books

    I've been picking up bits and pieces of botany and horticulture piecemeal since I started collecting plants, but I feel like I could use a more formal introduction to the fundamentals of the science and best practices of both. I know there are some erudite people on these forums. Could anyone...

    Hi from Germany

    Hi, I read this forum for some years and I thought its time to be more active and start with an introduction. I started with carnivorous plants about 10 years ago. My first plant was a Drosera capensis and from the very first beginning I was fascinated from these glistening sticky plants...

    Nepenthes (merrilliana x truncata) x vetchii 'Caesarion'

    My little guy is finally settled in enough to make it's first pitcher for me, and I wanted to share. I was talking to some professionals, and they seemed to think that this hybrid is destined to be lack-luster. Sure, it's parent, 'Caesar' was enormous in the pitcher department, but was...

    Hello from Boston, MA!!

    Hi Everyone! I just joined terraforums few days ago so I thought I should give an introduction here. I have always been interested in CPs and found them very fascinating but never thought I would be able to obtain one. Last year when I was on my way to the gym, I saw a sign pasted outside of a...

    Hello from Connecticut

    Hey everyone. A little introduction. I have practically zero experience with carnivorous plants, in fact I don't really have much experience at all with terrestrial plants. I have however been in the aquarium hobby for a little over 3 years now. I've been keeping aquatic plants in my tanks for...

    Planning a Trip to Southeast Asia (Philippines Nepenthes Expedition and Borneo)

    Hey all, It's been a long time since I have been on the ol' TF. I miss you guys! I suppose life and other obligations have been more at the center of my attention lately. Also my Nepenthes/carnivorous plant collection has been reduced to the bare bones and I hardly have any pictures worth...

    New guy from SW lower MI

    Greetings All, I guess this is a belated introduction as I have been lurking for quite a while and have made a few posts so I thought it was probably past time for an intro. I'm fairly new to CP's...had a Nep 2 years ago but we moved and I gave it away during the transit to make sure it lived...

    Introduction & Highland Grow Chamber

    Hello All! I've made a few posts here and there over the last year but I figured it was finally time to (re)introduce myself. My name is Matt and I'm a carnivorous plant enthusiast from central Pennsylvania. Some may remember me from quite a while ago in my teenage and early college years...

    Nepenthes singalana

    I have a several month old N. singalana coming shortly that I am pretty excited about. From what I have read they don't sell for very much so even though they would be considered one of the "toothy" neps they certainly aren't up there with the big three or four that need no introduction. I also...
