From California, getting back into my my childhood hobby, with pics of new plants

Almost done with college so have more time now. Read several books, forum posts, and blogs than decided to do this again.

Welcome to TF!
Welcome to the forums! I must say, you already have a very nice collection going!
Welcome aboard! That VFT looks pretty big!
Welcome to TerraForums :D Always good to see another grower in the Bay Area
Those look good - wonder how hard getting some of them like the Drosera hybrida and VFT to go dormant is going to be. Should be fun!
Welcome to Terraforums! Your conditions seem perfect for growing highland Nepenthes! Nice pictures.
Welcome to TFs and back into the hobby of growing these wonderful plants. :wave:

you know, I have been doing a lot of research on that subject because that was my top concern. Do you have any advice? Being that I am in USDA zone 9B my plan was to leave them outside and cover it up during extreme weather. Or I may just buy a harbor freight green house.

ya, i was surprised at their size, and apparently it's not adult size yet. soooo i am hoping it'll grow even bigger :)
