Thought this would make an interesting topic to start. We are all mortal here and have made our fair share of mistakes when it comes to our dearly beloved carnivorous plants. This idea came to mind a few nights ago in the chat box.
Without further ado, my dumbest thing I have ever done to a CP.
When I was 16, I bought the typical death cube VFT at the local Lowes Home Improvement store in the month of July. Upon getting home, I learned that VFT's really need bright direct light. So I put my brand new VFT outside on my roof top to get the bright sunlight it needed. Mistake? Yup. Never stopped to think that the death cube was to be turned into a solar death ray, steaming my beloved VFT in less than an hour. The VFT was completely limp and dead when I checked on it. The good thing about this, it spurred me to really research CP's and get me to where I am now.
Let's hear your sad tale of lessons learned.
