    Well,
    you must be Loved & appreciated to get a plant like that!
    WOW! I AM jealous!
    If that doesn't get you onto Neps, then nothing will!

    But I am sure in a few weeks when you master Neps as well as you've done on the Heli's, things will be going along fine.
    In fact, let me know when it starts vining a few yards long, as I will get in the LONGGGG line for a cutting!

    Again, you really have nice friends! But then I don't know of anyone else as deserving of it around here! With all the help you freely give to everyone here, not to mention all the give-aways & such.

    Glad you were home to get it!
    Otherwise, a sad surprise it coulda been!

    I would have loved to see any of them at the show! (Now THAT would have had my vote!)
    They are one of my top plants (if not "the" top plant to grow & master), along with a nice looking Villosa. (Next would be some other plants I would be terrified to slowly kill off!)
    But some day (like many others) I hope to master these, along with the other highlanders such as Jacquelineae, Hamata's, Edwards... etc.
    (And I might, if you start growing more Neps & find out the best & easiest way to grow them!)

    Truth is, I was actually hoping to see a few more "desirable" plants such as these here (at the show) for sale. (And not at "arm & leg" prices!) I thought that this would have been the place for such things...
    some plants a little more rare, but potentially affordable perhaps.

    Oh well as for me, I think bills & credit card statements are what awaits me at homefor now!
    But perhaps just as well, for I already have enough stress as it is. At least for the moment....

    Anyway, all kidding aside... Congratulations Butch. You are well deserving of it.
    I wish you good luck with it!
    (And nice job to whoever it was who showed you such an honor as this!)

    I just want to honour them by growing it as well as they have :-)
    Seems it worked!

    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Wow what a beauty! :O It sure is a very nice and generous gift, especially considering that macros are one of the most valuable yet commercially available Neps! Good luck growing!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Best. Gift. Ever.

    Wow. Wow, I say, wow.

    What comes around goes around I suppose! If you're worried about killing it, you could always pawn that responsibility off to someone else. . . :P

    "y'all are conspiring to get me to grow neps and I know it!"
    Apparently it is working! (And like refusing food from the tribe, it would be an insult not to accept!)
    ["There, I now did my part to help the conspiracy!...with Guilt & Manipulation!]

    Just look at the plant! Look closely! ...See the gorgeous form & nice colors...!
    Now repeat after me... "This is the plant I'm looking for!...
    I can't just go about my business!...
    Grow along...! Grow along....!

    Don't forget to get a couple clones of macro too; just to make sure you have a buddy with whom to compare pitcher features and growth rates
