    Tigers require permits because they're large, wild, potentionally killer animals. o.O
    While I would understand permits and regulations on specimens taken from the wild, I still don't grasp the purpose of such for "captive" specimens.

    I never doubted the integrity of Andy's plants. Unfortunately he only has two things on that list in stock, and nearly $30 is kind of way beyond my budget. I wouldn't think that holding my hand out for a small division of such common Sarracenia is a huge deal. I've messaged him though, just to be safe.

    @jafvortex93- the climate here is the typical Florida weather. Hot, humid, and overall miserable. It's been kind of overcast lately but hasn't rained, which is a letdown because I'm tired of buying so many gallons of Distilled water at Wal-Mart a week and would love to collect lots of rain water. What about down there?

    @liz it was how you described for a week or so down here but that all changed today, from 8am to around 5-6pm it was raining from pouring to just drizzling but nonstop. and yea im sure the miserable factor is increased with all the lovebugs you probably get up there, i was just in orlando visiting blizzard beach. the drive down was ridiculous i had to stop about 4 times just to wash my windows. what are the temps you experience in the winter time? enough to send your sarrs into dormancy outdoors? and do you grow nepenthes as well, if yes what kinda LL HL or Intermediate? i know a ton of questions lol im always glad to talk to someone from the "sunshine" state.

    Maaan, I hope we get some of that rain. Over the weekend it stormed reallyy good, but it was all wasted- the majority of the rain was missed because my family thought they were doing me a favor my moving the garbage can I use to collect rain out in the middle of the yard and away from the gutter, and I'm new to using trays instead of individual dishes, and so some of my plants got flooded, and when I did remove my catching-containers to where I want them, apparently there was some contaminants somewhere and the water was all soapy looking. I was out there in the thunder and lightening and looked like a drowned rat for NOTHING. Well, I had to save my plants, regardless, but still.
    Oh god, the lovebugs are making a comeback, yeah. For whatever reason, whether its the design of my car, or the protective layer of dirt on it, I never get plagued by lovebugs. I get the occasional splat, but my dad's windshield is nearly entirely white by the time he comes home. =P What's driving me crazy is the cicadas and squirrels- cicadas scare me, and squirrels just make me nervous, as they can always steal a plant. Or bite me. And I could go without a rabies shot.
    In winter time, it's a little warmer than inland because I'm coastal. I think. This past winter was pretty brutal, certainly far worse than the typical "3 days below 40" I'm used to, but everything survived. I brought my Neps in and that was it. I think it was mostly in the 50s and 60s, only dipping past 40 on exceptionally freezing nights. But yes, they did go dormant.
    I have a bit of everything- My Bicalcarata is lowland, the Truncata is intermediate (despite being a Highland form), and the Densiflora is Highland .

    Ah. I'm kind of burned out on seeds though, especially since I had to sell my light, and I don't have anymore trays or peat pots to get them started in. Thank you though =)

    Yea well what has seemed to work for me is im constantly checking the weather just to know whether or not its going to rain so i can time whether or not to walk my dogs earlier than normal. Sooo what i do is i walk them and after that i climb on my roof with my hose and a broom and i spray and sweep till i see that nothing is falling from the roof into the gutter into my container. that way i get mainly clean mostly uncontaminated rain water. my girlfriend loves squirrels she got bit by one at seaworld tho haha. but hey no worries because squirrels cant get rabies (a little fun fact). yea down here the weather gets around 50's in the winter but with the windchill it probably feels 40's or lower. yea i only have 1 ventricosa some d.roseana d.scorpiodes d.capensis alba and vft's 'typical'.
