My name is Tea and I am from Hertfordshire, UK. I am very new to keeping carnivorous plants as a serious hobby though I have kept various species over the last few years purely out of an appreciation for them visually. I have kept 3 or 4 different species of Sarracenia, numerous venus flytraps and sundews before and now, I am attempting to grow a few plants from seed for the first time. I now have 3 pots (respectively containing Sarracenia, Dionaea and Darlingtonia seeds) hopefully doing something on my windowsill :) Waiting has never been my forte so the likelihood of me going out and buying a few grown on plants in the meantime is high!
I did research & conduct a couple of studies on these plants whilst studying towards my BSc in animal biology & ecology which was very interesting. It gave me a better understanding of them from a biological point of view which only served to massively increase my fascination! It also explained why my earliest experiences with them as a teenager hadn't gone so well... but I digress.
Anyway, I am here to learn from people who are actively involved in keeping these fascinating plants so I look forward to talking to you all and hopefully sharing some of my own experiences and observations soon!
