    Poor thing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] Pop in to the Trading Forum and see if you can get a N.gracilis for free. It is quite a easy grower so I am sure that other CPers would mind taking a cutting or two. I would love to give you one myself but I am not in USA.

    Well, my father decided to give me 20 bucks.The N.gracilis wasn't in stock, but I'm getting a N.madgsarcensis(sp?) and another judith finn, I was going to get the highland form, but that's 20 bucks not including S&H and also getting live lfs. It was a red form gracilis. But on the plus side, unrelated to Nepenthes, my D. rotundifolia from new york finally sprouted [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Is your backyard accessible to plant thieves? Meaning the two legged kind. I put a lot of plants out front and the only thievery has been by squirrels, who've been known to knock over the smaller pots and, at least once, carry a little Nep several feet. Far enough that I couldn't find it and only noticed it when I almost stepped on it after walking away. My two most impressive (relatively speaking) Neps were within reach of anyone walking on the sidewalk and someone could have made off with more than 3/4 of my CPs and orchids without straying more than 15 ft from the sidewalk. And, in a neighborhood of 50 x 100 ft lots, plenty of people go by. I wouldn't trust hanging jewelry or bottles of liquor out there, but I don't sense much a desire to steal plants. It's random destruction/vandalism I've worried about, but it hasn't happened either.

    I have a dog in my backyard and my backyard is facing traffic, so it will be kind of hard to jump the fence without getting caught. The only people that can go there is usually landscapers or fema, but he has to open the door for them. Part of our side fence recently got torned apart and we had to put some sort of fence to temporarly hold it until we can repair the fence.

    I think this is enough reason to create a monster CP to guard your collection.

    20 foot tall, Nepenthes x Dionaea x Drosera hybrid anyone? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/blues.gif[/img]
