    Thumbs down

    i went to target today , hoping to get a pair of shorts [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] and to see the garden center to see if there were any cp's . when i went to the garden center its was really quiet and there was only one person there . I said " do you sell venus flytraps " the guy said " no , sorry , i have'nt seen those for a long time , i don't think they were ver sold here because people feared that the plant bite " , isn't this rediculous , these are very stupid old rumors , i wish that if people knew how to grow orchids and african violets then why can't they learn and grow cps . i told the guy " thats stupid , i have grown many different species of carnivorous plants including the venus flytrap and they don't bite " the guy said " sry , too many people don't do the research and they assume that the plants are aggressive and will grow big and harm the grower , try OSH " . never have i heard a pile of crap about carnivorous plants " well , is there anyways there well ever be cp's here , i can try to give you names of a few companyies that have these plants and you can try to sell them " the guy still said the same old thing . I wish people knew about cp's as well as they knew other plants . very rediculous / [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    Question

    Quote
    sry , too many people don't do the research and they assume that the plants are aggressive and will grow big and harm the grower[/QUOTE]

    Well the same can be said about kids. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] They bite, grow big and get aggressive. Yet people still want them. Go figure. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    If people are stupid, and think that plants bite, I'd rather be a biting plant than a stupid human. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]


    Peace out

    I am not sure if they are stupid...maybe just a little bit uneducated about vfts. It is like someone talking chemistry to me - I would be giving them the look like someone let one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] .
