    Well, I did get a few CP's this year for my B-day after all... although *blink* I left VFTs off the list for a reson... *sigh* two words of advice I have for anyone else who asks for CP's for a holiday. A) make a note that you do not want plants from anywhere but the place you chose and B) NEVER coment on the varities of VFTs at a local store.

    Anyhow... I now have 2 (why they got 2 is beyond me) typical bigmouths (er medium, they aren't really as big as they could be) to deal with for the winter. One I understand... but 2?! Oh well, free plant is free plant I just hope they aren't carrying anything.

    I shouldn't complain really, but it's practicly like asking for a gold fish and getting a hermit crab.
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    No Kidding! Also, don't go into a nursery and tell them they are killing their CP's. They get very teste and deffensive, like they know everything. Sheesh. The only way I didn't get banned was to "rescue" about 20 dollars worth of plants, and buy some more supplies. No one will turn down a sale!

    Darcie,
    If you truly do have the 'Big Mouth' cultivar, then you should be thrilled. Many people here would kill to get one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    That always happens to me. once, I asked a worker what a plant was that was mixed up with the flytraps. (it was a nep. and I asked which species and she said), "It's a venus flytrap of course!"(in an annoyed way), and walked away! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] I hate when people are like that! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] Thats why I hate being a kid. well, soon I'll be 13, maybe then people won't do stuff like that! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] and darcie, yes, you should be very glad you got a bigmouth var.

    I'm afraid turning 13 won't change anything...sorry to disappoint! I'm 28 for crying out loud, and when I called the local garden center to ask if they got any vft's in they said yes, then I asked if they had any different varieties, and they sounded really annoyed when they said "venus flytraps!". How dense can you be!? So depserate to make money that they take in plants they know nothing about then act like they know what they are talking about!

    You guys must live in Jerksville! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] The people I complain to are at least ncie enough to move the plants in a sunnier spot when I tlaked to the manager and nice enough to accpet my advice! I even commented on the Orchids and how the "spot" heat light was too harsh for them when it was 6 inches away from the leaves! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] And they then put 2 flurescents over the plants. Course that was way back in spring now the orchids are mostly gone and in the compost pile anyway. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
