    Hi Tamlin:

    It looks like you have described "the complete recycling guide for a nepenthes plant" [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    is there anything left at the end?

    Hi Dave,

    Something similar happened to me a couple of weeks ago...I was getting ready for an LACPS meeting and I placed a potfull of Pinguicula gypsicola in flower and a 12in clay pot with 2 large Drosophyllum plants in the back of my car. After getting out of the driveway and making the first turn, I looked in the back of the car after hearing a thud and found that the Drosophyllum pot filled with sand had tipped over and smashed some of the delicate P.gypsicola. The flowers on the gypsicola were destroyed and every one of the plants were covered with sand. The roots of my Drosophyllum were exposed and the leaves were completely engulfed in sand. My plants are still recovering, but luckily none were lost!

Expect thuunderstorms, tornadoes, hurricaines, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Just when it all is working out, look forward to squirrels, cats, birds, dogs, kids, wives and garbage persons to dump, tilt, knock, dig, break, steal and dump. Expect to neglect the plant when it is at its finest.

    Then you won't be disappointed

    Pondboy is right on the ball with that. I used to spend days mourning over what I lost, or what was doing poorly. Now I adopt a more laid back approach. Plants come, and plants go. On any given day the roster changes as to what thrives, what does nothing, and what is headed to the big bog in the sky. Disappointments have been hard and many, but ahhhhhh, for that one sweet moment when all looks perfect, happy, and thriving I gladly take the hard hits in stride!

    CP2K:

    NOT THE DROSOPHYLLUM! Ahhhh, the pain. In all my born days I have never so much as had a seed germinate. No, save your advice. I tried that. I think I have tried everything except using chicken noodle soup and dynamite. I figure Mom forgot to invite the old neighborhood hag to my christening. She showed up anyways, and poining a long cooked finger at me she intoned "Never will thy child Drosophyllum grow".

    She also put the curse of the stalled checkout line on me. I can stop a checkout line that has been moving like a mercury/exlax cocktail through a roadrunner until it becomes a strata in the fossil record. I even proved it once to a friend by buying a single candy bar. I predicted the curse would manifest, and sure enough, I got the beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.
    "Just a minute.........", says the clerk, reaching for the phone. My friend was amazed.

    errrr, what were we talking about? Sorry. Its the ragweed pollen!
