  1. Hi, just joined the forum, looks good. I'm only an amateur at CP growing and don't have many plants (as yet), but have a Venus flytrap that is 7 years old and still doing brilliantly. Also several Drosera (rotundifolia, intermedia and anglica), Sarracenia purpurea, Pinguicula vulgaris, U.vulgaris and 2 other VFTs. I have just ordered seeds of some CPs from Triffid Nurseries (thanks Andy), incluing S.leucophylla, S.flava, S.minor, D.californica, D. capensis, D.binata and D.filiformis, so hoping to expand my hobby a lot more. The CPs that I have really seem to be suited to Irish life - they all love it in the summer, but have to protect the VFTs from frost and cold in winter. And I'm lucky enough to live in an area where Drosera and Utricularia are really common. I welcome advice anyone wants to give me.
