    Might be a stupid question,but do you have a friend (that grows cps) that lives close that could keep them for you?Or you can educate your mother about cp and their care.Or you can send them to me.....LOL.

    You shouldn't be worrying yet, you're to young. You can grow a lot of plants in three years so have a good time while you can. I'm actually in the same spot, except I'm a junior. It's kinda frustrating, because I don't have time to raise any more sarracenia from seed. When the time comes, I'm thinking I'll leave the rarer/nicer specimens with experienced growers and or donate to botanic gardens. And with the common plants I'll jest make a bunch of people happy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    When I move into a dorm I want to bring an amorphophallus tuber with me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    my job keeps me away from my plants for two weeks at a time. they're in a terrarium under lights on the tray method with no human intervention while i'm gone. so far, they're not doing bad. i just have to make sure that i water them when i am home.
    all my outside plants are in giant pots that will hold enough water for 2 weeks, should there be a drought while i'm gone.

    there's ways to make it work if you want it too. send me a pm with any questions you have.

    peace,
