    Lol, i started to crack up when i read that! What happened?

    Anyway, my Nepenthes collection is loss-free. Except for that cutting... oh well i kinda messed up anyway. So far, my biggest problem is a cape sundew, i dunno what the heck happend to it, but it just shiveled up literally overnight.

    Guess that's why i grow about 15 types of Neps, and about 7 types of anything else.

    Your not supposed to depress me with the variety of ways you manage to kill the Nepenthes I send you!!! Just a polite 'yes it's doing great! btw I need to buy another .. you know for a friend yeah that's the ticket.'

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] well, I was repotting my ventrata today and caught a whiff of chlorophyll (spelled torn leaf...) while adjusting the pitchers. Checked the leaves but didn't see any tear...until I placed the pot back onto the rack and saw the first and only basal shoot broken. arrggghhh...

    Um, did I say I got that plant from Tony?
    I see how you get replacements w/o admitting you are a cold-blooded killer. I will have to remember that.

    I think I take way too much care of my Neps because I haven't managed to kill any so far except the harder cuttings (heck, even a haphazardly hacked N. sibuyanensis top rooted in cruddy LFS! They're very easy to root, so I've discovered). I am however absolutely terrible with Sarracenia and VFTs...

    shokuchuu, we are opposites! I am MUCH better at growing Sarracenia's and Dionaeas, and not as good when growing tropical species such as Neps, Heli's, ect... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    i cant grow a VFT to save my life. havent tried ceph's yet. only tried heli's once and failed. Utrics, Genlisea, Drosera, Sarrs, Pings and Nepenthes have posed no real problems yet. killed one or two here and there but i generally know exactly why they died off. except for the darn VFT's im on failure number 3 and dont feel like killing any more of them.
