Want to grow but how?
I recently became interested in CP. There just a certain appeal to having something that eats those annoying things like like to buz around my face. I haven't been able to find a whole lot of information on the web that isn't directly contradicted on another site. As i only work part time and am a student, i have a limited budget. My questions are as follows.
Is it better to buy an existing plant or germinate from seed? In either case, any recommendations as to where i can aquire them? I would like to know the exact scientific name which is why i ask for reputable sources.
I woudl like to try my hand at actually growing them from seed and I have read that some require cold stratification and others don't but is there a good source of information as to which do and which don't?
Does anyone have any suggestions as to a nice range in the types of plant as well as form and color? I would like a nice variety and being female generally tend towards colors other than plain green. I have seen some beautiful mutlicolor ones so i know they are out there =)
I appreciate any help you all can give me!
