That's awful! I guess she thought it was dead or something. It's sad that you can't find Green though. My VFT froze in the back of the fridge.

Man, I swear, people just don't THINK. It's like you gotta put a BIG FAT SIGN over your stuff "DON'T TOUCH ON PAIN OF DEATH!"

Darcie, I'm so sorry! Milk it. Make her feel so guilty she buys you a whole new tray of them!

I'm sorry to hear that Darcie. But I guess she didn't realize what it was. It is good if more than one person is using a fridge to label any bags clearly so that doesn't happen. Still...I know its hard to lose a plant you've had for a good while.

Darcie: I can relate, sorta. Reminds me of my second VFT that got killed. My friend, while driving up to college, accidently knocked it onto the floor. It was a goner! What is your major, by the way?

I am sorry to hear that Darcie. I can relate to having things tossed out simply because the other person either doesn't see a use for it or they think its dead. What gets me is why people toss something out that isn't thiers in the first place. Seems to me they should ask first.

sry to hear that darcie , i've never had a problem like that but i know how hard it is to lose something you cared about so much , i can relate , my grandmother once thought that my dormant bag of s. pssitacina was a red onion and almost cooked it with her soup

Thanks everyone. She did ask, but about a different pot of dirt. She assumed the same went for all pots of dirt apparently >_< The good news is she felt bad enough to let me use a strainer in the sink and threton it with vile "dirt" in order to help me find Greenie. The good news is that in addition to last weeks stir fry, I found it

! YAY! I can't belive I found that itty bitty leafless minni potato of a mutant flytrap (it's had some health issues ever since a fungi attack). I don't know how badly hurt it was by the ordeal, but it's down to 1 root... not that it was using it since it dropped all it's leaves for winter insted of just slowing growth like my others do. *Sigh* I'll have to wait and see if it is still alive next spring
