I am also growing CPs in Portland. There are a few others in this
neck of the woods as well. I don't even have a greenhouse, just a bunch of
south facing windows, a few shop lights, a propagating dome or two and a
couple of heat lamps. I've had great luck with Sars (Flava, Leucophylla,
and Purpurea Venosa), all kinds of droseras, and VFTs.

See you on the list!

Flyspecks! I've been spending my life living among flyspecks, when there
are miricles leaning on lampposts on eighteenth and Fairfax!
