    I like when i put up a post about trading and I get offered something I really want. But I'm sure if I wasn't so specific in what I wanted I'd get more trades

    It is a toss-up between seeing my first Darlingtonia in its natural habitat vs seeing VFTs in their natural habitat

    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.

    Wow it’s hard to have just one memory that is my favorite, but one stand out…
    I remember when I had set up my Genlisea hispidula to grow roots into a glass cup full of water to see the traps and I had to cover the glass due to there being algae all over it. The plant didn’t look so good and had not grown any so I never bothered uncovering it until about a month after the setup was made. I had planned on opening it to clean the water figuring that it was dirty and I was shocked by a huge trap that had grown in the center of the water! And the water was perfectly clean! It was just an amazing and unexpected scene that left me all astonished!

    That reminds me I need to post pictures of it!

    Wow! I didn't think the topic would receive so much attention.

    I'd say something about a Nep pitchering, but my ventricosa, probably the closest to pitchering, feels like making leaves is more important than pitchering. After fertilizing it, it stopped growing for a little more than a week, but it's growing again, I don't know if it helped yet.

    Hmmm...really hard narrowing down a single favorite...

    But one of the top moments was getting to explore the Green Swamp, NC. THAT was an absolute blast! VFTs, sundews, pings, pitcher plants...WOW. It was 2 days of soaking up beautiful landscape. And I got my first fire ants stings.

    And it was pretty exciting when, like Jim, my N. ventricosa made a flower spike. A first for me.

    Those are just a couple.

    My favourite CP moment so far has been whenever I take a magnifying glass to check on my seeds and I notice some green showing up. It actually happened yesterday with S. leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek White' and D. muscipula seeds, so i'm still quite happy and anxious to see them form their first true leafs.
    I'd also love to see CPs in their natural habitat, but haven't been able to so far.
