    lol my wife doesnt mind them. she doesnt particularialy care for them but we live in a small town in the middle of nowhere and she knows a person needs their distractions, besides i spend less on Neps over the course of the year than she does on books(her main distraction) so she isnt about to say anything about what i spend on Neps

    Sure, a guy needs his distractions, and Nepenthes are so much cheaper than hookers.

    ... Or, uh, so I've been told!

    Come to think of it, some Nepenthes are more expensive than hookers. Seriously, I do believe that several of the great CP godfathers of the 70' and 80's suffered through bitter divorces.
    Personally, I don't tell me wife to stop feeding her horses, and she doesn't tell me to let my plants freeze. It is an uneasy truce, but it's working so far. We'll see how she reacts next month when I get huge boxes from Germany, Sri Lanka, Australia, Malaysia, and Thailand. I might be sleeping in the doghouse for a few weeks.

    I thought about posting a humerous response - but my wife might hurt me. Seriously, relationships are way more important than plants. Don't let the plants ruin a good thing - (right, honey?) It is far easier to replace a plant than a relationship. And as soon as you get that plant you have been lusting for, you find a new plant to lust after. Enjoy the pursuit, life is in the journey, not the destination.

    I try not to mix my personal life and plants. Although, when I bring girls into my room and they see a bigas cage full of carnivorous plants, it's rather difficult. Oh well, better to be out the house I guess [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] !

    I feel your pain FC. I'm on plant restriction at the moment too. I'm also an Orchid guy and some of those can be quite pricey as well if you get them big enough. Seedlings are inexpensive, but you have to wait years to see them bloom sometimes.
