    Wink Problem with plants obsession.

    Hello

    You found yourself watering your plants at 4am ?

    You have a "heliamphora rules" sticker on your car's bumpert?

    Plants addiction, and indeed obsession is really a problem! Some ppl quit they day job for this.

    You think you have a plants obsession?

    I can attest to being guilty of some of having some of those traits, but not all. For genre specific plant obsessed peeps like me I would add the following.

    Feeling guilty when someone gives you a houseplant as a get well gift because even though it was thoughtful of them, you only give house space to carnivorous plants, indoor bonsai and orchids. You know you should be grateful but inside you're trying to figure out where to put the danged thing so as not to use up any of your precious growing space.
    (I'm actually guilty of this..received five houseplants as get well gifts this month, including one from my husband,)

    that was fun! I am definitely obsessed. I think I've got nearly every species of Sarracenia now and most varieties, but I havn't gotten down to forms yet... although I have been working on making my own hybrids for awhile now

    I was relieved that my friends and I didn't go camping on Mt. Hood this weekend because I was worried that I wouldn't be able to fill the humidifier for a day.

    Whenever I am away for a couple days I call one of my parents to check on the humidifier and lighting twice a day.

    ALright, so I fit a number of these, but I'm not obsessed! I think intensely.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I've often though of making a magnet for my car that says "Rare Plants On Board" instead of "Baby On Board" so people will know why I'm taking turns more cautiously than usual.
