Hello for the US

Recommended Posts

Greetings all o the great people of this awesome forum! I am a High School carnivorous plant grower (can't find many out there) an I have been growing carnivorous plants outside for about 2 years. I grow them on this little table in an array of trays that hold them. But they are all pretty much dormant now :( and the ones indoors appear to be in suspended animation (anyone have an answer?). I am glad to be a member of this forum and be able to contribute to the discussion!

Welcome to CPUK. What are you growing indoors that you're concerned about? It's quite common for suspended animation this time of year.

Welcome to CPUK. What are you growing indoors that you're concerned about? It's quite common for suspended animation this time of year.

The plants i am keeping outside are still experienceing normal dormancy, it is the plants indoors that are in the suspended animation (a bog garden with Sarracenia and some derosera, and some dionaea seedlings im growing). If it is normal, I wont worry too much! :)

They still need their rest. Although it varies with Drosera depending on the species.

Yeah, I was going to meet Mr. D`Amato in person at a LACPS meeting, but he became ill and couldn't come...I have talked to him via email for the project that got me hooked on carnivorous plants though. Hopefully I will meet him in person this year... I saw your grow list, it's pretty impressive, it looks to be 2x the size of mine...

Nice, do you have a growlist? Thank you, he is very nice in person

No, but I'm trying too, I tried to sign up on Flytrapcare.com, but it hasn't sent me the conformation email yet, so I'll probably try later. Have your heard of the Sarracenia rhizome going on at the California Carnivores website? I'm planning on making an order this weekend...

I'm so jealous you've been to California Carnivores. I've spoken to Peter via email in the past and he's lovely. He's going through a rough batch at the minute as his mother, Nel, passed away a few days ago.
