    Hi y'all,

    Guess what? We, the carnivorous plant community, are the only people group in the world who use the word "growlist" as one single word!

    This is kind of unbelievable (even to me)! So y'all want evidence? Go to a major search engine (I used google) and search for growlist. The first few pages of links are exclusively cp-related. In fact, over 64% of the websites Google found with the word "growlist" on them also had the word "carnivorous" on them. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    How did that happen? I think we all tripped each other up into using a non-exitent word... hmmm. But hey, at least it does have its plusses: carnivorous plant growlists just got a bit easier to find [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    well, time to email my friend webster... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Noah,
    I realized that the other day when I kept typing growlist and the spell check kept going off. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] I thought it was lying. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]


    Capslock,
    Nice collection. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I'll be really interested to see how the Cepahlotus 'Hummer's Giant' cuttings do for you, keep us updated.

    Hehe, this would be one LOOOOONG thread if everyone posted everything they grew in it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
