    A visit to Phil Faulisi's: Photos part I

    So, I recently returned from a visit to Phil Faulisi's place -- I was so astonished and dumbfounded by the mutant carnivores that reside there! It is almost as if Phil has this magical CP growing aura surrounding him and his house!

    The photo fun is about to start: As a note, I will break the photos up into a couple threads for easy viewing for those that are not on a broadband connection.

    A huge standing ovation and special thank you once again to Phil for allowing me to photograph some of his spectacular fine specimens! As always, it is an honor and I am at a loss for words - you're plants are simply amazing, and you are one truly amazing individual. Thanks for everything bro.

    A note for those who have not read the previous disclosure in the Nepenthes forum: Please do not PM Phil for divisions of his plants out of respect for Phil and those requests WILL be ignored. The plants will find their way into cultivation. If you PM him, the wrath of the moddy’s will descend and you will be fed to this monster in the can. Bwahahahah!!!




    Oh, don’t forget to grab a snack to sit back and enjoy the show!


    which was the remnants from lunch from…


    YEAH, that’s frog legs!


    Without further adieu… you are now entering Phil’s Place!
