    Thumbs down

    yesterday i went to register my plants at a exotic plant show in arcadia for labor day weekend and i was talking to the president if the L.A.I.F.S., and he told me a story that the people around his house STOLE most of his collection!!!! NOW WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING!!!! now i do understand that people who grow nepenthes or carnivourous plants might know the value of that plant but just regular people. they dont even know how to take care of them. id be better of with someone that knows how to grow them because i know that they will take car of the plant, but some regular people. this guy had some rare plants too...

    And, if you grow them in the closet, the neighbor you took them from will never know.

    I'm always a little worried that someone might steal one of plants. Not my Sarrs because they are big and strange, but my VFTs. I have a green dragon that probably would look tempting to some teenage kid. A lot of people pass by my porch...luckily our apartment complex is all gated in (though never locked).

    i hate bad teens because they ruin reputations of those who want to make a diffrence in the world(i belive hours of gardening help for the towns seniors would put me on the list of those who want to make a diffrence), bad teens should be PAINFULLY taught a leason , just think: a bad teens= prisoners and killers of tomorow deal with them today and you wont in the future. well eny way most of the teens in this forum are well established and not trouble makers. i have had a venus fly trap dente from my bog pulled out and stollen, as well a s. leocophylia wile i was on vacation.

    I have some plants that live out on my sweetie's fire escape - the only place that we have that gets any direct sun. It's not the greatest building/neighborhood, so I'm always paranoid that they'll get stolen, or at least poked and prodded at. So far, so good, though....*crossing fingers* I'd be super mad if that happened!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
