Hi everyone, I've been meaning to join this group for a while.
I'm in Connecticut, USA, and yes, I'm part of that "Raucous" group the NECPS.
I started growing CPs back in 1969 or so when I was a kid. I've tried growing them on and off mostly with poor results until around 2000 when I got back into them heavily, "outta control" you might say.
When the NECPS formed in 2003, that just made it even better with new plants and tips from other growers.
I grow mostly VFTs, Neps, Sarrs, some Cephs, and a few Dews.
