Subject: Allow Me To Introduce Myself


I just subscribed to this discussion group and wanted to make a
quick introduction. My name is Jen and I live in the US,
Southeastern Michigan to be more precise. I fancy myself as having
a green thumb when it comes to plants, but I don't know much about
CPs. My initial ineptitude caused me to (unknowingly, at the advice
of the garden department that sold it to me) torture a Venus Flytrap
to death by watering it with tap water and feeding it hamburger.
That was about two years ago. Last summer, at a street festival, an
exotic nursery was selling pitcher plants. In an effort to cleanse
my karma of past sins, I decided to try to try again. As far as I
can tell, my plant is of the genus Sarracenia Minor and is
indigineous to Michigan. I wasn't given much instruction on caring
for the plant -- just that it likes humidity, distilled water, and
no fertilizers. Amazingly, the plant was kept alive and propegated
new pitchers through early December. I am keeping my fingers
crossed that it has survived the dormant period I provided during
winter -- all existing pitchers dried out and I am hoping that
rhizomes will take over and produce new pitchers this season.

Thanks for your time -- I'm going back to lurking, but hope to gain
the knowledge to be able to participate in this group's discussions
down the road.
