    Fertilizer does not kill flytraps-it does make them soft and weak though if u over dose. Nurserys who produce flytraps in massive proportions tend to fertilize their flytraps cause they don't have the time to buy millions of bugs and pain stakingly feed each plant individually.

    Hey Mondo,
    I wonder what they'd use for fertilizer, though. Probably, (sadly)something cheap and readily available, like MiracleGro, which is great for 'normal' plants but a danger to cp. I'm totally just making assumptions, however. If you are *crazy* enough to try MiracleGro on your cp, you should dilute it to AT LEAST 1/4 to 1/8 of the usual amount. This'd mean using one quarter to one eighth of a CAPFUL, kindly provided, once or twice monthly, per quart. Or, you could even be so bold as to try around two drops EVERYTIME you water, per quart of water. I personally would never take the risk. I'd rather stick with Superthrive and ED. I'm sorry I'm so fuzzy about the metric system, 'my' system of measurement may not be gone for a long time, and it is a very bad habit of mine.
    RP, I think I'll try some 'conventional' pics of the Buddabelly, scan 'em, and try to post them here, or even send them to you. Don't expect them for a week or two, I'm too compu-stupid(net-dumb?pc-impaired?ha)to rush this. Thanks for showing interest, though.

    Am I the only one having a problem thinking of the Pompom VFT pictured above as anything but the Cookie Monster Flytrap?

    hehh... to me PomPom is the perfect name...

    I will try to get a picture of the Death Camus up sometime as well, it looks a lot like those 'pony tail plants' but green and crisp rather than brown and woody...

    I can't wait to see your Budahbelly!

    I know what he means. Have you read the verses he mentioned?

    From what I read it sounded more like dragons than like dinosaurs though...

    goodness, you know you are the first guys to bite?

    What are dragons? Couldn't they be dinosaurs? Did you know britannic texts describe 'dragons' that very much fit the description of t-rex like dino's? (Huge aft legs, tiny fore claws, and jaws that could 'hold a wagon')

    In the NIV interpretation of the bible, Behemoth, referred to in Job 40 is called a hippo, but I challenge you to find a single hippo in this world with a tail like a ceader tree, and is strong enough to challenge a mighty river when it rages against him. Many people such as myself, interpret this to be a brachiosaurus, and Leviathan, to be a Plesiasaur. (sorry of my spelling is bad, it's 1AM here, I couldn't sleep!)

    Any how, basically, I will say this before going on, anyone who was at garden web for the "great Evolution vs Creationism" debate will know my belief systems, let me also say this, if anyone, and I mean anyone, comes out and attacks anyone on this board for their belief system (whether it be me, or anyone else) I will ask Phil and Jaie to boot you like a football right off the forums... so keep everything civil.

    OK... basically, I subscribe to a young earth model, I don't believe in evolution, I feel it has to many holes, infact, it is an untested postulation, (as is creationism) and neither should really be called theories (Theories are tested hypothesies) Fact is, neither creationism or evolution can be proven, there is lots of room for middle ground, so the idea of arguing it has lot's of 'tween' space for opposing views to meet.

    Since I believe in the literal account of Genesis, I believe that all the Earth was created in a day, and therefore, mankind must have walked the earth with Dino's, wooly mammoths, and all sorts of interesting critters. Yes, I believe in the flood as well, and there is compelling scientific and sociological evidence that a world wide flood did occur at one time! (REALLY, there is, I am not just saying that!)

    Any how, If man and Dino's were together in the beginning, say, 10,000 years ago, and then in the time of Job, say, about 5,000 years ago (I am not truly sure, and my bible is in next to my sleeping wife) it is not hard to think that they might still have been around during his time, all though probably rare.

    If this really tweaks your interest, I can give you some websites to explore, and discuss it more in private, through e-mail... I am not so sure it is an appropriate topic for this board, certainly not this thread.

    Oh... and one of the biggest things I think anyone should take out of the Creation Vs Evolution debate is this. Teach your children HOW to think, not WHAT to think. Presenting one side of the argument is a diservice, give them both sides of everything, and empower their minds with the chance to make a decision.

    The only other plants I grow are:
    Strelitzea reginae(bird of paradise)
    Cymbidium hybrid
    Stapelia Variagata.

    Each year i also grow
    Mimosa pudica
    Biophytum sensitivitum.

    I recieved recently from a member in here a batch of squirting cucumber seeds (Ecbalium elaterium) When these are ripe they explode off the plant like deflating balloons squirting their seeds in a slimy juice!! Its going to take ages for the first one to ripen!!!
