    I just recently overwatered my Cephalotus, and the whole thing rotted away. Now I had to spend $40 for a new one.

    As far as my carnivore deaths - P. esseriana, U. longiflora, N. mikei, and D. falconeri...I'm sure I'm forgetting a couple We can probably double or triple that for my miniature orchid count. And throw in my first Amorphophallus titanum, which was NOT my fault. It was dormant, and someone thought it was an empty pot, so set it outside in a bitter cold NJ January day.

    I find they grow better under threat of death... "Start blooming - now!"



    (BTW paper cut out! )

    VFTs and anything that needs a dormancy period is pretty much dead vegetables around me. Neps, certain orchids and others who don't have varying requirements throughout the year are easy for me to take care of.

    Hmmm I Killed a Ventricosa 2 years ago, I hadn't gotten into CP's and I bought it after I was dissapointed not to find VFT's, I throw it on my windowsill and let it dry completley between waterings (again knew nothing about cp's, i just started last year) It finally succumbed and died.


    Right now My Binata looks like its going down hill. I also killed on heli minor Which rotted away in the Pure LFS Moss media, My other survided it was in a better mix.

    Maybe what people should do is to take the first plant they get and roast it in the oven for a couple hours. Once that's out of the way, the next death won't be so traumatic. I don't get new cars but if I did, I'd be tempted to put a good-sized scratch in them so I'd be able to relax.

    I have killed ventricosa, hamata, and capensis. All were because of mites.

    It happens to everyone eventually. A few years back, I had a heating element fail in a large tank of lowland Nepenthes (N. truncata, N. ampullaria, N. bicalcarata, among others), when the ambient Tb fell into the low fifties for a few days, and we were away . . .

    Put a fork in them; they were well done . . .
