Here's my self introduction:

I live in Canberra, Australia and have been growing carnivorous
plants for the last ten years. I grow the usual sarracenia, drosera and
venus flytraps aswell as darlingtonia and cephalotus. I grew nepenthes and
pinguicula in cold canberra weather quite successfully for some time until
I went on holidays and someone overwatered my terrarium. Another notable
failure was an attempt at growing drosophyllum. The plant grew healthily
for over a year before inexplicably dying. I'm at uni now so all my plants
are back home.

I would be interested in finding out about any good Australian mail
order places for highland nepenthes, pinguicula and drosera.
