After the horrible winter in California, most of my plants we decimated, and thus after several months I have restarted my collection with a few Nepenthes, Ping, and Cephalotus. (Mostly from Lois :))

5 Flowers on ONE plant!! Then another one from another... Too bad I lost the tags.. gonna have to wait for them to grow out.. :p

Just wanted to know what you guys think, and hopefully I'll get back into this crazy addiction! :)

*Sorry if there were mistakes, Joseph, I tried my best not to make any!*

Good luck this round!
That Ceph sure is healthy! All I can say is propagate that beautiful leaf!! It is ripe for the pulling.

It's nice to see I'm not the only one who has the inclination to take my pings on car ride! :lol:

I saw alot of deathcubes w/ dead vfts... Yeah, my lowes gets pings/neps, but i've never seen sarracenia; and then I pursued to ask the worker there if he knew when he would get the next shipment. He said that they had to "sell" all of them first... or in other words, wait for them to die..

Welcome back even tho i don't know you but still welcome and i requested some Nepenthes, Pings, Sarracenia and many other plants so they replied and said that they will try to get them isn't that cool? Everyone should try it just go to lowes.com and leave feedback.

I'm so sorry to hear about the damage. :-( I think many of us had losses this winter; I did also. I can sympathize. :hug:

Congrats on the new plants, and great job not losing heart!
