    Nepenthes truncata "Queen of Hearts" x "King of Spades"

    I finally jumped on the bandwagon with a few other growers and picked up Borneo Exotic's seed-grown Nepenthes "Queen of Hearts" x "King of Spades," a well-known cross between two very rare forms of N. truncata, all but extinct in the wild. The photos of the "parents" are stunning.

    It arrived today, along with my damnable jury summons (I thought that I went through this crap last year). Does anyone know where I can purchase a temporary henna tattoo of a swastika or an Iron Cross for my forehead for the first day in court; or, lacking that, some passable reproductions of Russian prison ink -- something fashionable for the knuckles?

    I ordered one, but it seems to have been delayed in the mail.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Don't worry, I'm sure he hasn't forgotten.
    I ordered one back in December, and I got it yesterday in the mail. They hold shipping sometimes in the winter because of weather and it creates a backlog of orders.

    Mine had been delayed for several weeks by the Icelandic volcano -- say it, class, just the way it sounds -- Eyjafjallajökull . . .

    I just got a summons last week -- appearance date is one year and 3 days since I last served!

    Nice looking plant, BTW!

    Thanks, I've had the plant for just over nine hours and I am taking full credit for its appearance.

    There is a mix of live sphagnum with some pumice thrown in, since I have a primal hatred of perlite . . .
