Hi all!

Well after reading on this forums for awhille now I've wanted to introduce myself. My name is Rick ( Madball on forums )
I'm 24 years of age. And just started this great hobby! I live in the Nertherlands a little village
called Wijchen its close to the big city of Nijmegen. Other hobbies of mine are visiting concerts mostly Hardcore & Metalcore. Also really like to go fishing mostly on pike and zanders as long as it can bite back :biggrin: And i work as a Graphic Designer also pretty much one of my hobbies :yes:

At the moment i have only a few garden centre hybrids a couple of Sarracenias, VFT, Drosera Aliciae and a Nephentes Ventrata. But made an order with a bunch of plants but because of frost they wont arrive for awhille. Will start writing my growlist soon and then update it ofcourse :yes:

I'm also to be found on the Dutch forum Carnivora with the same forumname!

So yea if you have more questions just ask me i wont bite :D

Greetings Rick / Madball

Welcome to CPUK Rick, nice to have you on board.

If you've just started this as a hobby you couldnt have come to a better place. The people here are very helpful, extremely wise and will help in any way they can.
I hope you have a lot of spare room for plants because once you start they have a habbit of taking over!!!

All the very best
Steve
