    Latin helps if you want to go into the more field-oriented part of botany. Also, AP classes (both bio and envi sci) are good classes. These are the things I'm taking, as well as trying to get a job at a local nursery that sells CPs and orchids, among other things.

Ill have to see if i can find some latin language thing...

    this is kind of off-topic...and my first post too

    but CPs actually got me into/through college! I grew them extensively during high school and took lots of pictures. As a lot of people know, filling those applications is like marketing yourself to a job and people have been known to send video clips, artwork, music, etc to show off their "extracurricular side." Anyway, I had a huge bowl of S. purpurea that were just flashing in crimson red, so I sent pics of those to my school...

    After I got accepted, they even decided to give me a grant! Later on, I found out at a donor/recipient get together that one of the reasons why I caught my donor's eye was because of the pitcher plant pictures. He and a couple of others had been discussing over it. So he stuck by with me for the next four years so I wouldn't have to eat ramen everyday of my college life.

    Go fig, eh? I just thought it was an interesting hobby, but never once planned on it actually helping me out financially and academically. Thanks for reading.

    After I got accepted to the school, they also told me I got a scholarship/grant. And I think it's because of my plant pics.
