    TDS meter question

    I looked at your New Haven water quality data and agree that your TDS reading of 55 ppm seems to be in reasonable agreement with the published report. What comes out of your faucet after transit through miles of pipe may be expected to be a bit higher in TDS than at the source. I would feel safe...

    Is there a carnivorous plant that you obsess over finding in habitat?

    FredG: You might be indeed surprised! Lieutenant Uhura (AKA Nichelle Nichols) is now 83 years old! BTW, Lt. Uhura and Capt. Kirk are cited as the first example of an interracial kiss on U.S. television (1968).

    I would be happy to receive a memorial for CPN. If I get it by next week, I could run it in the September issue -- otherwise it would be in the December issue.

    My first pings

    It is interesting that I have been unable to find any other mention of the hybrid P. emarginata x ehlersiae anywhere. I wonder where this plant originated?

    I think the photo you are requesting is here. http://icps.proboards.com/thread/3764/moranensis-blooming Even though williamg does not specifically say his plant is P. moranensis "J", that is the only one he lists in his growlist included in his post.

    I bought the seeds from China .... help me ....

    mexican ping experts come (water question)

Try your untreated tap water and, if you have enough spare plants, try your diluted tank water you throw...
