    p.s. You'll NEVER guess my secret identity
    Everyone has feelings
    Captain Drosera, I think you keep asking the wrong question.
    You should ask if anybody cares about your secret identity. The answer will be NO!!!! Nobdy cares.
    And yes droseradude we know who you are. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Both your identities. Captain Drosera = Alan and DroseraDude is Matt, right?

    This has to stop sometime! (I can't find a smiley with a slightly frustrated look)

    Sarraceniaobs: Oh my god, and I thought dogs were the only 'alright' pets along with fish for plants lol! The only bad experienced was with dog vs rabbit (sorry a little off-topic). I was raising 9 rabbits under my poarch (hmm typo?) last year, 2 mothers and 7 babies... One afternoon, one of my roomates (the one with the cats in my post... there is some kind of relativeity to the post finally :P) went to threw vegetable over the compost pile and found all rabbits dead in the garden, with a part of tomatoes and squash messep up... All dead, a dog went through the rabbit cage and killed them all for 'fun': not even a single one was eaten... But still nothing on the plants yet... But I must admit I am very suspicious now about the pets :P...

    Just a quick note: even all the sadness and frustration of lossing plants cannot be really justified, to my eyes, to a person which kill some/all your plants, if this wasn't intentionally...

    A frequent deception in CP is when you give the responsability to someone near you to take care of your plants when you're away... Be sure you'll most likely be dispointed on your return (especially if you are away for a while), but you can't hate them for this: they try to help you out with something they will perhaps never be as knowledgeable as you about, and they aren't propably knowing how much really these plants are precious to you (even a mother or a close friend cannot realize sometime). They were simply trying to help you out, and without them, your plants would have died anyway, alone (you surely lost less plants by letting them caring than if you would have let them alone...). Even with all the precautions you made, all the recipes you made, all the caring sheets you made, this person will not be able to be as careful with these plants as you do. I know what it is, I lived it several time in the past 7-8 years I grew CP. Even this summer, I thought I think of anything could be helpful for the 'keeper' of my plants, but I was wrong. So don't be mad at them... forever! I can understand your sudden angryness, but I don't think anybody deserve to be yelled at him/her, or that your reactions toward this person should change for this: very few people can understand the way we think about our plants, and very few know how our plants 'really works' (just my mother when she fertilize one of my first VFT with pure fish emulsion...)... The better way to avoid such dispointment? Make cutting before you leaves, and share plants!

    It was my 2 cents about it, and I thought it was interesting to show it...

    I got an almost disaster. Last winter I got my first N.bical. It took it a while to recover from being shipped, then I had to repot it. So that set it back a little too.
    This summer it recovered really good. I had 4 pitchers open. Pretty big pitchers too.
    I had some guppies in my rain barrel. I had a few that died, so I did what any other cp'er would do. I recycled the fish into my nice big N.bical pitchers. Within a day they all started turning black, every pitcher died. The plant lived and seems to be recovering. I still don't have alot of pitchers on it like I did before I feed it the guppies.
