    of course, since we are being particular about people's spelling and grammar, I believe:

    recognise should be spelled recognize, right?

    Anyway, the Atlanta Botanical Garden has a particularly nice raff that had very nice uppers. They chopped it way back this spring/summer. I was getting HUGE!!!

    Now, what was that about glass houses?

    Garren, if you are on these boards to flame someone then leave, if you're here to contribute information to a topic at hand then you are welcome to stay. Correct with prudence but be just when doing it if you must.

    I am confused why he is only slamming on Glider and no one else? Says he is in the UK so I wouldn't think there has been a bad plant exchange? Any ideas Glider?

    Apparently you are missing the point. I wouldn't have even pointed out his (Garren's) typos had the guy not had a track record of just flaming glider14 on here. And I did so to point out that no one is perfect, and hence there is no point in badgering (flaming) any single member. And BTW, I'm pretty sure English is not MrFus primary language. Besides that, he maintains a very respectful demeanor in his address of others (although if you wish to just help him improve his English, then that is legitimate). N. Gracilis I hope you were not referring to me with "Correct with prudence but be just when doing it if you must", because I was trying to be just and prudent.

    ugh...

    is this gonna turn into another huge debate thing that everyone gets "flamed" in?

    i.e. how to sprout nepenthes seeds awhile back with Phission and someone else?

    cant we just grow up and move on? we told him it's wrong for being mean to glider, now leave it alone.

    UGH- here I thought a lot of people had interest in my pictures... Guess not. Garren has been warned before, and has now been given some infraction points. If he keeps it it, he will be banned. Now move on with the topic... There is a good chance ALL these posts not relating specifically to my topic will be removed soon. Just so you all know. Please stay on topic now.

    mmm...

    yea that is right we are moving on tematic from the pictures of your plant to understand the psychological motivations of Garren to annoy glider14, and the spelling issues.

    I really hope my get as big as yours... I love the contrast of colors and organic patterns on the pitchers.

    I definitely agree. I have a regular Raff and two elongatas, and they are growing at an incredible rate. I did not realize how fast this plant grows. It seems like the pitchers are inflating faster than any of my other plants.
