    You're just not doing enough. Surely, you can rescue a couple of Home Despot Nepenthes mutts, a capensis or two, to round out that paltry collection. Looks too, like a varmint has invaded your house . . .

    NASC cobras fieldtrip!

    Once again, such paltry documentation. Couldn't you just take couple of snapshots -- would it be too much trouble?

    What are you listening to right now?
