    Was Devon was trying to get to second base with his Dionea!? LOL

    -You spend your daydreaming time thinking about building new terrarium enclosures.

    -You're impressed with greenhouse supply catalogs.

    -You have to buy crickets for your lizards, insects and plants.

    -After going potty the plants/terrariums are the first thing you take care of in the morning.

    -People suspect you of growing dope cos "it's silly for a young person to be interested in plants".

    - when you have a "plant budget"
    - when you have a dedicated closet for pots and soil mixes
    - you plan your vacations around your watering schedule

    How about:

    -you haven't been on vacation since you were 12 cos you don't trust anyone to care for your plants?

    - you freak out if the weather is crappy for 2 freaking months and your sarrs arent up to pace

    - you frequently take photos of your plants

    - the first thing you check when you get online is a CP forum

    This.
    Today I woke up at 7:30am to move the Sarrs/Dews/VFTs out in the open so they could get sun.

    splendid! Glad to see everyone pouring out their inner fetishes and quirks with CPs.

    - you hear the words "bog, peat, or moss " you think CPs

    - you love the smell of sphagnum and secretly wish you can have it as carpet

    - if your VFTs don't have red inside their traps, you think you've failed at growing them right

    - you want to believe every bromeliad out there is at least pseudo-carnivorous

    - you got annoyed when you watched that video of the girl planting Capensises all around the woods, public parks, lawns, etc ( I think she took it down)

    - You have to ask someone to repeat the question to the one and only question you were asked on a conference call because you were too busy checking the trade threads.

    - You check your 401K and hope it gets high enough to allow you to start that CP nursery you have been dreaming about as a retirement job.

    - You research all of your vacation destinations to see if there are any CP related places nearby.
    (Worked out good for me. I am going to Meadowview in July!!!!)

    - Your 5 year old knows more about CP's than most local nursery workers.

    - You get tired of answering whether or not nepenthes and sarracenia lids' close when they catch insects.
    (or am I the only one that gets that question)

    - You start thinking about purchases as how many CPs you could have bought with that money.

    And last but not least....

    - Your neighbors have seen you in your undies on more than one occasion while carrying trays of CPs into your garage during the beginning of a freak thunderstorm.

    my neighbors have seen me in my undies moving all of my temperates in my greenhouse and under the patio during a freak horrid hail storm a couple weeks ago...lol
    undies & bare skin + hail and strong wind = either one crazy person, or someone who is seriously commited rofl
