    Just like a bad check...

    Hello all... I am back!! Its been a while since I have been active here at TF, so I thought I'd take a minute to re-introduce myself. I first got interested in CPs back in 2002 or so when I got my first venus flytrap. After a year or so I discovered this forum and I really loved it. I made...

    Dry Sarracenia

    I would'nt worry too much yet. Sarracenia in general can take quite a bit of "hostile treatment". The rhizome itself retains quite a bit of moisture and unless or untill it turns to mush, you should be fine. Ive grown quite a few Sars in my time and Ive dried out a few.. they all seem to...

    What Am I? (Large Pics)

    Peanut, Don't expect a whole lot of color to show up right now. In general, existing leaves may darken a bit, but the true coloration comes out when the leaves are young and developing. As this plant progresses into spring and summer, you will see that all the new growth will exibit the...

When you pull from a driveway into the center left turn lane, it is there to increase speed so you can merge into traffic...
