    Had to tell you guys ('cuase they're just more plants to my wife [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img])
    Just got 2 S. alabamensis from the ICPS. I am soooo tickled right now. I'd forgot all about requesting them! Wish me luck growing and propegating them you guys. Of all the plants I have, these are the most important to keep alive. The others are replaceable. These may not be, and I don't want to screw up this opportunity that has been given me. I received one plant from location AL002 and one from AL003.

    Yeeehaa. OUCHH! *BCK throws back out doing backflips and summersaults*

    That is great news. Now I am wondering if I got picked for the plants as well. Guess I will find out soon.

    How big are your plants? I know they are seedlings and possibly different sizes. Did you get plants from the same locations or different locations?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    I just got home and these plants are beautiful! My wife called and said there was a package on the front porch for me soon after I posted my first reply. I couldn't wait to get home. I opened the box and was totally blown away by the beauty of the first plant. The second plant is equally beautiful. My wife looked at me and said "it looks yellow, is it suppose to be that way?" I will be taking pictures later tonight. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    The plants that are in my care are Sarracenia alabamensis - AL001 and Sarracenia alabamensis - AL003.

    As I finish this post I have tears in my eyes to know that these plants depend on us even as our society has helped cause there destruction.

    Woohoo,

    I just got home and found AL001 and AL003 waiting for me! Talk about making my day. Now I just can't wait to flood the seed bank with seeds.

    Here's my new babies. AL003 certainly has a decent amount more red in them than AL001. How does AL002 compare?
