    11 or 12, it was a typical. Lived quite well untill it went dorment, my Mom pronounced it dieing and happly got rid of it. She hated plants back then, never would have guessed she would tolerate my big collection now [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The next one had crown rot when I got it. The next got hard water from "helpfull" familly member for about 3 months before it croked and I had no idea why. And then finally, #4 came along about 5 years ago and that would have made me about 15 or 16 and it is still with me today [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] It's also why I have about 30 other plants now too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I got my first(and only) one in September. I had always had an interest in these plants, and luckily I found Barrys site before actually discovering them in Home Depot(lets say I was bored and on the fish forums, and went to google.com and typed in...). This plant is either a green type, or a typical which hasn't yet gotten enough lighting. I woke it up about a week after Valentines day(brought it inside) and its been on the windowsill since then.

    I got one when I was 8/9. It was just a typical one too. My aunt gave my it and it died because I wasnt educated in CP. Now that I am, my CPs arent dying anymore!

    Over the years I have occasionally picked up VFTs from the zoo or elsewhere, but they were usually weak and died fairly quickly (well, I didn't do as much research on raising them as I should have either).
    Now I'm 37 and so I have the excuse of buying them for my 2 yr old daughter, who, of course, never looks at them unless I am, which is quite often (it's so fun seeing them close on a bug!). I just picked up a red dragon, dente and common about a week ago and they all look healthy as of now. I think the California weather is similar to their native habitat, except perhaps a bit less humid, so I hope I can keep them alive for many years to come.
