    All of my plants died! The house had a power outage and went back on again, but the swamp cooler for the greenhouse turned off! It did this while I was on vacation. All of my plants, including heliamphora and cephalotus cooked abd died. Numerous nepenthes also perished. I'm really bummed.

    There is nothing left that is alive...I cant get over it.

    Doh! That is not good. I nearly died when ONE of my plants died while I was on vacation.

    Don't let it get you down! Plants can be replaced. Good luck, and camp the trade forum!

    wow that sucks... So there is absolutely nothing left? How big was your collection?
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Sorry to hear that [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] .
    Just remember, it could always be worse. Pus you don't have to worry about watering anything!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Don't tell me you don't feel a slight weight has lifted from your shoulders?
    Not making fun, just trying to point out the positive [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I'm sorry to hear that... BUT in the time I've grown CPs I've seen many surprises... Keep watering them for awhile... They can be stronger than you think.... It's ALWAYS worth it to water once something has "died"... I've had plants come back after "dying" 3 months prior!
    Good luck!
