    These are the same pictures I just posted in my introduction, but I figured I'd share them here, along with some specs.

    GIS experience?

    I was accepted into the GIS (Geographic Information System) Certificate Program at my school. I figured that since I am majoring in Geography, I might as well jump into one of the most demanded aspects of mapping in the field. The "program" itself is smaller than a minor; it's only composed of...

    Hello Everyone! I'm GrowinOld!

    Greetings All! I am not new to Carnivorous Plants, but have been out of the hobby for some time. As a kid back in the late 60's I ordered some Venus Fly Trap bulbs from some ad in a magazine. They grew in our kitchen window in a little glass dish for a number of years, and I was hooked...

    book - Growing Orchids at Your Windows winner Est $7

    This was my first orchid book when I bought it ~10 years ago and it gave my first orchids the opportunity to survive while I learned how to grow them. Originally published in 1963 (this edition is 1972), it's older than most of the people here, but it's the best introduction to orchids I've...

    Come on out guys ! REAL men don't watch sports.

    I'll be the first in this thread to admit it. When you all are talking about the QB from '82 that should have won the Superbowl or whatever, I don't have the foggiest idea who you are taliking about. Never have been interested and never will be. Scotty Chaos brought this up in another...

    Free Nepenthes good starter plant

    Hello, I have a nepenthes that was one of my first ones that I never really took great care of. It is even still in the original "junk" media. It was purchased from Homedepot so is one of those mystery hybrid things I guess. I don't know if the lack of lid is from horrid breading, or me never...

    My Rafflesiana Elongata snapped growth tip

    Hey all. This is my Rafflesiana V. Elongata I just got recently. The growth tip was snapped along with some leaves during shipping. I left them on there in case the plant was able to pull its nutrients from the dying parts. I'm not sure if Neps can do this, but I know many other types of plants...
