    Wow, I hope I never do that to one of my Neps! Although I'm sure I'm more than capable of it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    My burbidgeae wasn't pitchering properly, and I was told it might do better in a more shaded position.
    So, I tried to move it and it's most promising pitcher was tangled up in a nearby fusca. Of course, I couldn't see that.........

    I've fried several poor Droseras. And I managed to lose a red dragon VFT in my fridge that didn't turn up until 3 months AFTER dormancy ended >_<

    I think about the most stupid thing I've ever done is slam my head in the car door...and I've done it more than once. It really hurts. It made me what I am today.

    Plant-wise? Siting plants in the wrong spot. Putting full sun types in shade, etc. This gets expensive after a while. I also used Safer's soap on this rare plant I had...it did NOT like the Safer's soap, it lost all its leaves and croaked. But it was a rose, and I didn't care that much, but I did make a "note to self" about it. AprilH

    "Doctor, doctor, it hurts when I do that." "Don't do that!"

    Several weeks ago I put 4 hanging baskets worth of Neps under the overhang of our front porch, giving them lotsa "bright shade". They were doing fine. I thought it would be a good idea to give them more sun, so I had them hang from the eaves. I fried half of them. Two died and the many pitchers turned black. They are still recovering.

    Then there was the cobra lily / stream experiment....
