    Hey guys,

    I have some bad news to deliver to y'all. I'm going to have to get out of the hobby. Yes, it's true. My time is too precious at this point in life to support CP growing. What with schoolwork, friends, piano, and all the other committments I have, there is no way I can take care of my CPs any longer. This hobby has been a blast all the time I've been in it. There's nothing more rewarding than to create new life through propagation, digging into the soil and potting up new specimens. Yet, all good things have to come to an end. I'll probably end up selling most of my collection on the CPUK forum in the next few days. My plants with named location data will be given away.

    I will be around for the next couple of days at least though.

    It's been good!

    uh huh. I have heard that before. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] If it is true, you will be missed and maybe sometime down the road you will find more time for cps. Best of Luck!

    It is difficult when life happens in such a way as to dictate which priorities must be first taken care of. We have all been there.

    There were decade long lapses where I was unable to cultivate, and it is likely that this will be again since I am not able to continue to afford the pleasure of my collection.

    But, as Phill Mann said regarding my return to the CP scene, "The plants get in your blood", and they do!

    You are fortunate in that once your life reaches the point of stability that will allow for you to return to growing, such a return will not be too difficult. TF will be here when you are ready!

    My very best wishes in your persuits, and I will be happy to see you return when you can. Thanks for being such a supportive, sharing and caring member of our community! You will be missed.

    Well man, I've not been here long, but long enough to agree with schloaty that indeed you are good people. I'll have material waiting should you return.
    I understand your decision as I'm practicing with my band 4 or 5 nights a week in preaperation for many upcomming gig's. I've literaly had to create a watering chart and pollination course for my wife otherwise my plants might suffer. *sigh* Sometimes life gets in the way. Please stop by and visit TF when you get a chance. If I do not get the chance to speak to you again- May you propigate the seed of life in the heart's of men(women TOO) where ever you may roam. God bless.
    I always suspect everything is a trap....thats why I'm still alive

    Times fun when you're having flys

    You will certainly be missed, I know how it is with the busy schedule especiallly now! I've got Tennis Practice, Piano Practice, HOMEWORK, Friends, Counter Strike...(I try to play when I can...), and ACT test prep! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]
    I find less and less time taking care of my plants as they seem to dwindle away, but I always find the extra ten or twenty minuestes daily to tend to my plant collection. Man are they addicting. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
    I thought you people where \"Plant Geeks\", Look at me Now...

    SF, sorry to hear that. Good luck in your life in whatever it is you choose to do. There's no official "cp hobbyist" list, so don't feel like this is permanent, or that you're really "leaving" a community. You're just rearranging your priorities to fit your situation. We all hope you'll be back and we'll be here with plants to restock your collection!
