    One of the highlights of my entire life was finding a new species of Nepenthes.

    I would say finding a mystery D. binata seedlng emerging from a Nep. in a hanging basket, this winter. I haven't a clue as to where it came from or why it took 6 months to germinate. This is that plant, from 2 months ago:

    Bought: I would have to say finding my N 'Holland Hybrid' (overcrowded 6 inch pot when I bought it) for $4 when I bought it.
    Found: some CP sites. Expecially those in Western Florida that I can visit everytime I go (actually I have a favorite site in AL, but it is about 2.5 hours away from where I stay so it is kind of a long journey)
    Plant found: D. rotunifolia and D. intermedia sprouting from seed in my bog this year.

    First: One of the D. binata growth points I thought had died just underwent a magical resurrection [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Second: When I ordered a double potted VFT, not only did I end up with 4 VFTs (3 normal sized and one tiny), but a tiny green dot that grew into my D. spathulata [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    hMMMM..
    Must be the time I found my N. 'Coccinea' had come back from the dead.

    I had cut off the whole plant, down to the soil (it almost dead, and was taking up space). The I put the pot (had bothered to dump it out, too lazy) on the bottom shelf and promptly forgot about it.

    Months later I was looking for a pot just that size, and reached for it....Low and behold, the 'Coccinea' was growing back from the roots! I hadn't watered it in MONTHS!

    Now this sucker is hardened off to just about anything, lol.
