    Hello, I just brought up that topic again, soo you could see it...actually, there are two other topics like this one

    I started in jan-feb. 2002. We had moved to califonia for about 8 months then, and the dsl didn't work in alot of town, including my house. so when we went to the library to go get books, we also went on the internet. one time I had something I wanted to search on google, but I didn't know what, it was kinda in the back of my brain...hmmm....."oh yeah, CARNIVOROUS PLANTS! so I searched, and ********** showed up! so my dad got me a flytrap, then I got EVERY book on cps at the library and read each like 5 times!, (after alot of "please PLEASE! ok I didn't go please Please! ) and then a month later while he was away he got me a heliamphora! Thats all I needed to get hooked I got a darlingtonia, a red dragon flytrap, and the red flytrap is dead, (eaten alive by fungus nats! then I saved two flytraps, two neps, and like 8 adelae in one pot, now one of my "rescued" flytraps is my best after being dead! then for my birthday (mine was on a wednesday, so we went on the sat. before my b-day, which was somehow the same day the BACPS meeting was at his nursery! I got a bargen on a giant 20 in. tall, 2-3 in. wide sarracenia for $35.00. (before I continue, I just want to let you know I wanted just cps for my b-day, and I got just cps! I got some more sarras, a giant red-green dragon flytrap, a ventrincosa and some other plants. then at the next BACPS meeting...I'll continue later, I got to eat and one of my fingers hurt from typing AND from being bitten hard by my pacu! see ya!

    Ok, so now you know my story [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . I haven't killed a plant in the past 2 of 3 years or so. Don't think I'll ever try Darlingtonia again [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] . I can also add one bladderwort, 3 more nepenthes (6 more ontop of that next week, and 14 more by Christmas [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ), and one Sarracenia (seeds/seedlings soon). By Christmas the total will be 59 different forms of cps. I really hope you don't think I'm braging. I'm just exited about things to come [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . Ak47, do you grow any carnivorous plants (cps) beside venus flytraps?
