    Well its alway fun to find a "gift with purchase" in a pot...like a sundew in Sarracenia you just bought. That's happened a couple of times.

    Troy...I'd say that would rank right up there at the top of "pleasant" discoveries. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Must have been an awsome feeling.

    Just recently I found a byblis seedling in my container of P. luscitanica. Not sure if it will survive but I hope so. Didn't help that I pulled it up thinking it was a bit of sedge before I realized it had "dew" on it.

    Any time a plant grows and does well, its always big kick. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Really? Mine are extremely lazy. I look at them 20 times a day, and they don't seem to kill anything except my time. Aprilh

    My N. alata x Ventrata is always surprising me with new basal shoots. I've had six new shoots in the six months I've had it. One even seems to have made a pitcher without a leaf. That's been a pretty nice string of surprises, especially after I bought it pitcherless.

    Really, my most pleasant discovery has been how beautiful and complex they are. How it's a miracle that they survive around us. I had no idea, previously. Nature always keeps me in complete awe! Aprilh

    Some times they need a helpful push into the pitcher or trap. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    The most pleasant cp discovery was these forums and the friends I have found here. They still support me even after I pulled a nasty joke on them.

    The second most pleasant discovery was finding a plant in NC that had only been found in the state one other time in 1972 U.floridana.
