Back for now

Decided to unlock my account after locking myself out last year due to too many failed login attempts. Sorry for all of the unanswered messages in the inbox all, but I wasnt here. I'm usually on FB most of the time. Hope to reconnect with old friends if there are any prowling the forums anymore. Cheers

I forgot to water my dang plants!

Uhh I came back from school today only to find that I should have watered my plants this morning. My Flytraps are okay, but all of my Sarracenia look ghastly. I'm not afraid that they're dead or anything, I've had this happen before, they're tough. I'm just angry because I know they're going to be set back up until next spring.

I've been so busy with school rolling around that I don't have the time ...

from the USPS with "Tender, Loving Care"....

So a very generous soul on another forum sent me a micro-mini orchid of which he had an extra. This is the box it came in:

I strongly suspect the box was originally cube-shaped. Amazingly enough, the plant was -- though a bit dry -- okay.

I'm sure most everybody here is familiar with above site and I hope the guy who did it is still active and also present here.
