    Old-timer just saying hi

    Anyone remember me? An old friend messaged me in the hopes that I was me and I surprisingly still get E-mail notifications. The last time I was here I had just graduated HS, and since then I have graduated college with a BS in Biology. I don't really grow CP's anymore, except for a few special...

    Aussie red Aldrovanda

    After several failed attempts to get and grow different forms of red Aldrovanda, I found someone in the states who was selling these plants, from Kimberly originally if I remember correctly. I do have a few others that are on life support to doing ok-ish, but these so far are doing the best...
