    Just curious to see how many years people have been able to keep their CP's alive and thriving!

    My oldest one is a Green Dragon that I purchased from this site in July 2002.

    My oldest nep is 1.5 years old. Its a truncata that I bought from Dean. Its amazing how much I've progressed in this short time. Although I only grow neps now, I did grow sarras and others before I switched to the royalty....

    My first CP, an D. capensis that i bought as a tiny baby only 2" wide is now a big ole flowering monster. That was about 1.5 years ago.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Well my oldest are probably Adrian Slack cultivars such as 'Lynda Butt' and 'Evendine'. They're about 30 years old in theory.

    I know I have a few VFT's that I have had 10 years now!
    but im not sure which ones..I never kept track.
    they are in there somewhere!
    and I also have one nep and probably 4 or 5 sarracenia that have been with me 7 or 8 years.

    well i have an H. nutans that I estimate is probably 11-12 years old but I've only grown it almost 2 months
    The one I'd have to say ive had the longest is my S. rubra spp. gulfensis Crestview, FL, that one came from florida, almost all my collection died in shipping, but they stayed alive
