haha thanks mato. not my goal but if it comes to that ill be more than happy to share beautiful plants with everyone. My main goal is to open a nursery and i figured carnivorous plants will be a large leap forward. To me alot of these species seem to be quite easy to grow. I even seem to be successful in bringing almost dead plants back to life. like i always say i dont have a green thumb i have a whole green hand. I know my setup isnt the most extravegant thing on the forum but i have most all the materials to make what i imagine in my head everytime i look at my current set up. its just being pacient and not blowing my entire savings and rent to have it right away. I did get a bunch of things in the mail today tho so my shelves are filling up quite quickly so i may be forced sooner than later to upgrade.

CHECK EM OUT!
