    My first was the typical vft death cube. I promptly killed it. And the next 3-4 i got my hands on, before I did some reading and figured out how to give them a decent chance.

    I bought a vft at a super market/greenhouse in Salem NH when I was 4 or 5 years old. Naturally, it did not live very long.

    I had a typical vft and d. adelae from death cubes; both got killed when I watered it with tap water and the humidity became so high, rot came.

    My First CP's: When I was eight or nine (forget which) I got a kit out of a garden magazine that have venus flytrap seeds, a sundew, and a tiny Sarracenia purpurea (I believe). I have no clue what the sundew was, as it never opened a single leaf before it promptly died. The purpurea did ok for a while but eventually died. Surprisingly the flytraps did the best and I eventually got some of them to reach a couple inches wide...But that was before they died, lol. It's surprizing how long they lasted since I think I was using tap water, and also fertilizing them regularly to get monstrous VFT's as quickly as possible.

    I started of with a good old fashion VFT. From there I got a S. 'Judith Hindle' and it went from there.

    My first was actually a vft given to me as a kid, but it long since died. This is the first cp I got when I got serious about them a few years ago. Still alive and well. Rescued in fall 2010 from my local Walmart. Took this just a few minutes ago. It's waking up from kind of a lousy winter dormancy.

    Just like almost everyone else, my first CP was a VFT in a deathcube from Lowes, which of course died, followed by a Carnivorous Creations kit from which a single "S. leucophylla" (likely a hybrid) is still alive, from like 5 years ago.
    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.
