Hi everyone. Wow it's been a long time. I'm so sorry I poofed like that. My hard drive crashed and after a month with no contact and my life getting more and more hecktic at school I just didn't get my lazy bumb over here. I hope I did not scare, upset, sadden, enrage or worry anyone.
All that being said I have been trying to keep up my collection although I had some losses over the summer from "events". The Good news is I have also had some great successes. My Ceph is climing out of it's pot, litterally, as are several other plants. I nursed my ailing vfts back to health... although I still do not know for surtain why two of them suddenly crashed, and I am taking a wetland plant class and learning a bit more about plants that live in bogs in general.

I'm transplanting it this winter... er expanding the the amount of soil around it's little floating peat pellot, lol.
I was also able to collect some native sphagnum from a bog loaded with D. rotundifolia and S. Purpurea so I have my fingers crossed I got a seed or two in the process. If not I at least have the material to start a little outdoor bog with now [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
Thats about it for news from me. Other then my classes are eating me alive. I hope everyone has had a great spring/summer.
