    Well I have come to a conclusion that bragging will kill a cp (or any other plant). For instance: when I got my first oreophila I told everyone and was quite a bit egotisticall about it. 2 weeks later it was dead. Why? B/C a rhizome borer ate it. The only Sarr it killed or attacked was my oreo. If I brag about the size of my VFTs they shrink to an inch across or so. Anything I think Highly of dies or gets disreputated. I know others have had this experence. Something w/D. adelae ont he "what cp have you killed the most" thread. Post here about your "brags" that turned ugly. Maybe this will cure those ailing plants.

    hmmm, I have really bad luck so I have never bragged about my cps except maybe my their color, and then poof that particular trap gets eaten or broken. I won't brag about anything else for fear of loosing the whole plant.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    My drosera regia. Had it in a twelve inch pot, growing in bright shade. It took off and grew huge, leaves 30" long and one inch wide. The plant was actually catching yellow jackets, and winning. Of course, I was King Grower, Big Cheese, De Man!!!!! And I told everyone so. Within three days, regia was totally gone, the root a mass of goo. So much for being "De Man", and all those other guys too. Just grow, and watch what happens. That is pretty much all you can do.

    So, in the future, you should only deprecate your worthless, POS plants!

    Then they'll thrive, if only to evolve enough to eat you...

    Not exactly. But it sure lets you know that you don't know everything there is to know about the plants. Always plenty of room for error and lost plants, and it happens to everyone sooner or later. Always best when you get cocky, and too big for your britches!!!
