    JEEZ! I hear ya! I've got things set up pretty nicely so nothing gets blown over, but if they did, it'd be a loooong plummet down to the ground! But seriously, the wind has been pretty heavy lately! Today was niiice though, felt like spring!

    BTW, I live very close to Nisene Marks state park. The San Adreas fault runs straiiiiiight through it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Ahhh...well good thing that expected rain and wind didn't come.

    I've passed through Long Beach; I think, on my way to San Diego. I don't know where Nisene Marks is, but sitting right on the fault... mm hmm...

    Elk Grove is nice. =)

    San Diego. Yep, thats where I live [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] We have the faults, the earthquakes, the good weather and sometimes the bad weather. We're far enough south that we miss alot of the storms that blow through here in the winter. And you can't ask for a better place to grow highlanders [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Try Sydney! On New Years' Day we had our hottest day in 67 years, 45.3 degrees centigrade. That's 114F. Let's just say that I won't be updating my website for a while, as burnt leaves don't make for good photos. And that was with the airconditioning system going all day...

    Same here, Hamish. We're still recovering from hurricane Wilma. Ripped and torn leaves with windburn is also not photogenic.

    Wow
    I had plants wrecked during the xmas period but not from heat ,my heater tripped off and atleast -5 for the entire night has burned the tips off a lot of my plants,burbidgea is trashed,fusca ,truncata,albomarginata,merrilliana is not looking good,emmerana,spathulata x maxima has had to be cut back as the vine went black,ventrata is cut back to basal shoots as the rest is gone so all in all a pretty crappy christmas [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    For me, I love Nepenthes and I am satisfied chosing whatever species or hybrid adapts to my own conditions. I know people drool over highland species, but there are a lot of different plants out there that are wonderful and adaptable. I've been to Trent's website, and I must say you have plenty of great Nepenthes that can grow in Florida!

    Let me see the little highland punks grow a monster bical or rafflesiana!

    Thanks Brian [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    You make a good point. Man, can we grow lowland stuff down here. I love the highland stuff, and some of it is adaptable, but we specialize in lowlanders. There's still so many different lowland forms of species and hybrids we do not have. Why worry about trying to grow lowii, when we could be putting less effort into raising a showstopper of a merriliana, or a sultry Viking with twenty or more red pitchers. Not to mention ampullaria and bicalcarata, and the big challenge, northiana.
