Hello from Northern NJ USA

Post by jerrytheplater »

Hi all. I've been keeping and killing cacti since at least the mid 1980's. (I've had some success, even with my neglect) I've recently ordered a bunch of winter hardy cacti which I plan to add to my existing ones. I store them in my detached unheated garage in a south facing window.

I enjoy keeping Carnivorous Plants as well. Its time to repot these guys too.

I am the current President of the New Jersey Aquatic Gardeners Club, http://www.njagc.net/wp/

I have a few tubs outdoors with water lily and other plants.

My kids are grown and out on their own. 5 grandkids with one more due in a few weeks.

I see I have to use a photo resizer or post a link from a photo uploading site.
