I was quite interested in getting started in the summer last year but never really bothered, and earlier this year I had a chance to plunge into the world of carnivorous plants.
I've become addicted, but no, I don't need an intervention.
I started off with a few Drosera and one VFT, and recently plunged into Nepenthes as well. I numbered which Drosera are in pots together (for a couple months? I don't wanna change their situation and stress them out again because I just recently repotted them)
D. binata (1)
D. adalae (1)
D. prolifera (3)
D. capensis 'Red' (3)
D. capensis 'Alba' (2)
D. intermedia (1/2)
D. filiformis (4)
D. tokaiensis (4)
N. albomarginata 'Red'
N. naga (?)
N. x Ventrata (propagating)
What I'll be looking for in the future is a P. esseriana, D. pygmies, N. albomarginata 'Black' (I'm seriously obsessed with the look of this one, it's striking!)
WOW, so. A few months later, here we are. I'm sure I'm missing a few from this updated list as I havent updated it fully yet.
