Seriously I recently passed this time limit (or so I think). I have many friends. I have enough plants to give some away to newbe's. I give favors, I get favors. It does not seem like all that many people are annoyed with me. People are more willing to contribute to the Cp book now that we have stuff done. I seem to have enough experience to identify at lest some plants by sight. I can pick an S. flava var. rugelli out in the middle of a forest as well as S. minor and so on. So I guess I passed the "give up" time limit and everyone can know that I wil continue to be a presence in the CP community. A big plus is random people from around the globe contacting me for no reason other then to talk about cp growing techniques for something like D. brevifolia.
Has anyone else experienced this?
