    does my butt count?

    i am really honored that you guys even talk to me, cause i'm a plant killer. i have a bit of a black thumb.

    i am keeping my vft's alive. hopefully they will thrive and not just merely be alive. i have done a decent job with them in the past and just recently tried my hand at them again.

    last year i managed to kill a peppermint, parsley, basil, and there was something else.

    almost killed common houseplant thingie (can't think of what it's called) it survived and it's doing well in our fairly new residence

    a couple years ago, all my cp's died probably from being stressed- with me having so many life changes and moving around, being gone for days at a time. i lost every single one. so i'm just very slowly trying to keep some common herbs and just a few vft's.


    short answer to the topic: rosemary. i have not found a way to kill or harm a rosemary- wait. except that one time i was given one out of someon'e yard and i nearly killed it.

    I mentioned the thing about clear pots because they're growing on the sides and bottom more than they're growing on the top, lol. I didn't fry them, they've been like this for months and they're still alive because green leaves pop up everywhere. Plus the lights they're under are cool. The real reason I think they're ugly is cuz of stains from the peatywater when I flood them (since I water from the top it gets...messy).

    VFT's give me too much attitude. I like starting Sarracenia from seed. This time of year I like lowland neps because they party out in my minigreenhouse out back. Oh and I mess around with mexican pings, mostly outside if they can handle it. I've got some dews but I can't think why. Utrics? if it wants to grow, let it grow and bloom. If not, waste of space.

    sounds like the light is to strong, or they dont like your top watering stirring up the top of the soil...............

    Well since I know it's not the light then it's the top watering but oh well. Unless I cut holes in the pots and submerge them, I won't be able to water any other way. If I find any containers the right size I'll go for it. :P
