    well, just took a toll of my plants today. I won't bore you with the specs, but I mismanaged the plants water over the winter in my garage, and lost about 35 pots of plants. 20 of those pots had at least two plants apiece. basically wiped my sars out, killed every one of my vfts. so needless to say, I am mildly upset. I will be posting a thread in the trade forum if anyone cares to check it out. I am basically sick right now. I learned a valuable lesson, but it cost me a bunch. just had to vent

    I expect a full morbidity & mortality report, detailing the failures that lead to the deaths of your plants, that others may learn from your mistakes.

    I will provide you with some replacements if you do this.

    Me three. But I'll probably only be able to replace the ones you didn't have in the first place [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] .

    Been there myself. Only not with Cp's. Rare prairie plants, in my case. aprilh
