    Well, my nep ventricosa would be my oldest at a year and half. I have had d. adelaes for about 3 years now but these are the shoots off the original adelae which died after flowering. I have finally kept a vft over a year [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] which is a record for me! Maybe it can make two years? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    I am sure some of you have really old cps (the Neps can get pretty old from what I have heard)...Do you still have your original Cp that you bought?

    Well, I was given two VFT's in very poor condition which died horible deaths shortly after I got them (and not from any ovious newbie mistakes on my part, actually, I'm still not sure why they died) anyhow, the first plant I actually picked out myself is still with me. Snapper the vft has been with me for around 4 years now [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    My oldest plant, actually plants, are my VFT Green Dragons. I got them from PFT in June 2002 and they are growing like madmen. I hope to match Goldtraps 50 year old vft with these... hehehe [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
