Default Newbie reporting

Hello all, newbie to CP growing reporting in.

Richard's the name and residing in Petaling Jaya. Have always been fascinated with Venus Fly Traps ever since seeing them in the comic books of old. And then, there was "The Little Shop of Horrors" hehehehe!

Anyway, never thought there were so many varieties of CP's available in Malaysia so I am gonna have a field day here! Have gone through the forum and have learnt quite a bit from all the postings here.

Presently have a couple of Neps and VFT's for a start and wish to add Droseras and Sarras to the list.

Due to further poison by Andy, seem to have developed a craving for Tills and Broms as well.

Till later guys, happy growing!

Use to have some tills a couple of years ago but as I did not have the experience, it kinda met with an early end!

Guilty as charged! Just came back from Camerons with 2 different tills as well as some broms. Will post pics for help in ID.
Also some neps, sarras, droseras and VFT from Cactus Valley and other vendors. Will post those pics in the respective threads.

Just two pics of my new CP garden. All the CP's are either sitting on a water tray or planted in self-watering pots. They are placed next to the wife's water lily collection so humidity should not be a problem.
The Cp's are getting a minimum of 10 hrs of sunshine a day.Please advise on the conditions or any further improvements that I can make.



Part of the CP garden.
