I am an advanced invertebrate hobbyist - I keep tarantulas,scorpions and centipedes and I have just recently developed an interest in the Carnivorous plants of the world.Once again much to my chagrin I am a newbie! I have ordered a "Red Dragon" Venus Fly Trap and Nepenthes species Tropical Pitcher plant from California Carnivores - I also ordered a book called "The Savage Garden" along with raiding my local library for books on the subject.I am familiar with how irritating a newbie to a hobby field can be so I will not pester you all with a bunch of stupid questions like I get plastered with on the invert discussion forums...I thought I would just ask you guys and gals what were the most pertinent hints on keeping these plants alive - in regards to sunlight,watering and substrate.Oh yes, and feeding?
I would appreciate ANY tips on these topics and in turn I would suggest that if any of you are interested in another bizarre hobby/addiction you look into getting your self a tarantula to start out with..perhaps a Chilean RoseHair or a Mexican Blonde...and you can come and visit me on MY forums...Petbugs.com and Arachnopets.com - but be warned my new friends...invertebrates are just as addicting as CPs !!!
I look forward to meeting all of you!!!!
