Welcome to the (not so) Secret Garden; this website is home to a stockpile of information spread across a variety of subjects ranging from cultivation of carnivorous plants to spiritual pursuits. Please allow me to introduce you to some of the sections you can navigate...
The Butterwort Garden describes the care requirements of an insectivorous (or "carnivorous") plant genus known as the Pinguicula; this is a succulent carnivorous plant that, typically, has a more gentle and delicate appearance when compared to other genera such as the world renown Venus fly trap.
Phasmids are a group of intriguing insects that grow by shedding their exoskeleton - that is, their outer layer of skin. They are very intricately designed and a conduit of wonder! This section of the website is dedicated to their care and features a blog that follows my experiences with them.
The 'Pond' is the hub for aquatic and fishkeeping information and care sheets; it focuses on individual species care but also provides direction to resources that discuss a wider variety of general aquatics. At this time only betta spledens (Siamese fighting fish) are discussed but it is hoped that more species and guides will be added in future.
The Notebook is more of a personal area that focuses on Christianity with blogs sharing my own walk with Jesus and (upcoming) links to other Christian resources. It will also host information about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), a debilitating neuro-immune disease.
I truly hope you find the website beneficial and enjoy the time you spend here.
