    Wink

    All of my plants died! The house had a power outage and went back on again, but the swamp cooler for the greenhouse turned off! It did this while I was on vacation. All of my plants, including heliamphora and cephalotus cooked abd died. Numerous nepenthes also perished. I'm really bummed.

    There is nothing left that is alive...I cant get over it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_o_32.gif[/img]

    I tried bringing them back to life, but no luck. I live in the desert so it got pretty hot/dry. :c

    Ugh [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    The trials and tribulations of running a greenhouse. When I was mainly into orchids you would hear horror stories like this much more often... I myself have fried on greenhouse worth when a break tripped on the exhaust fan, frozen one greenhouse worth when a pilot blew out, frozen another greenhouse worth when power was out for 2 weeks.

    I now have back up system upon backup system for both heating and cooling, all on seperate breakers and automatic continuous duty generator with enough fuel to run for a month straight...
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Must have hurt your wallet as well as your heart man. I can only empathize a little though, i've only lost one D. Capensis, and one Flytrap.
