The CP universe is governed by these rules
1. There will never be a convenient, cheap solution for terrarium cooling.
2. 95% of all drosera seed circulating in cultivation comes from a guy with a Drosera spatulata plantation in his basement.
3. The red form always costs more
4. The coolness and attractiveness of a newly discovered CP is inversely proportional to the probabillity that you will ever be able to grow it.
5. If Utricularia subulata was a newly discovered species confined to an innacessable ultramafic bog high in the mountains of new guinea, people would be clamouring for specimens.
6. The yuccado pings will never get proper identification
7. The isolation and endemism of a population of rare CP's is direclty proportional to the probabillity that a strip mall will be built on that very spot. Aerial photography above the cloud forests of Borneo show that no less than 27 strip malls have spontaneosly generated on Mt. Kinabalu alone.
8. At a future CP conference, someone will propose an elaborate plan to elevate every "form" of P. moranensis to species status. He will be immediately gunned down by a disgruntled taxonomist.
9. No matter how much information about proper CP cultivation is released, there will always be some idiot convinced that he can grow a Nepenthes villosa.
10. We can put a man on the moon, but we can't get decent big box store CPs in the US. (I became convinced of this after seing mature Cephalotus and Heliamphora sold by European big box stores for only a couple Euros.)
