    Jerry,
    The wife and I was planning on going to the Washington Zoo on Sat. I found out there was a nursery nearby that has that type. First time I've ever heard about it myself.
    Unfortuantly the weather looks bad and I told him I'll come down some other time.

    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    I have this variety. The leaves are a little outwards-bending, and in the inards of the traps will colour up nicely under strong light. It is flowering right now. Strange, I thought this species was fairly common... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    It doesn't look much different from the typical vft. I can see the leaves look a little "wavy". Is this the main difference?
    The mind is like a parachute, it only works when it's open.

    I think that weyx's plants were all light starved from Triffild park...(Triffild park I think has a habit of doing that) so being light starved it started making longer erect leaves to try to catch some light.
    With good care and time Paradisia should be a plant that grows in a very compact circle with the traps hugging the ground. Quite a site to behold!
