    1) study wild carnivorous plants and their habitats
    2) study the genes of carnivorous plants
    3) not kill anything [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    my resolutions:

    1: get through the winter unscathed, plant wise. they're in an unused bedroom with the windows open. so far so good. a little powdery mildew here and there, but nothing Physan can't handle.

    2: kind of what Alvin said. I need to do some serious thinning. If I find the time I should have a lot of extra plants in a few months.

    3: set up a nice outdoor growing area in the house we're moving into at the end of january - although i probably won't be able to do much until april or so.

    4: get more plants that i don't have

    5: do a bunch of crosses again

    1. Grow my N. ventrata bigger and get nice pitchers

    2. succeed at growing the little D. capensis I got from Schloaty's seed

    3. germinate and grow sarracenia

    4. perhaps acquire some more plants.

    5. keep updated on NASC progress.
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    •To care for my CPs to the best of my ability so that they might be in better condition than this year
    •To complete a terrarium-like environment for adelaes consisting of a glass aquarium and a UV bulb (20 bucks for an 18-incher.. replace every 4 to 6 months.. blah blah blah, I know.. I used to keep Anoles), and in this tank I will put the adelaes, in their pots (I reckon that will be way easier and better for the plants than having a layer of soil in the actual tank to plant them in)
    •To also keep highland Nepenthes in the adelae terrarium, since the environment needs are similar
    •To expand my collection
    •To rescue every tortured Lowe's/Home Depot/Target/WalMart CP that I can (actually, my whole collection depends on stores having CPs)
    •To prevent my greenhouse from being tipped over by the wind FOR THE WHOLE YEAR (remember the birthday-greenhouse-go-ZOOM-fall-down-go-BOOM incident? Yeah, well, it's happened numerous times after that this year)
    •To find a way to keep the @#$% squirrels from getting on the greenhouse and digging the plants up and knocking them over for no apparent constructive reason (I'll resort to dribbling blood from steak packages on the greenhouse if I have to!!)

    1) Keep everyone alive.
    2) Get them into a nicer enlosure.
    3) Get some more indoor CPs.
    4) Raise a few Darlingtonia and Drosera outside from seed.
    5) Build a climate controller (I'm cheap.)
    6) Get involved with CP conservation.
