A trick may be a plant that you got that was clearly not what you had expected. A small plant that was actually a large, a mislabeled Nepenthes from Pikes (I wonder whom that happened to?), a long awaited pitcher that never opened, you get the idea. Anything that played a trick on you, good or bad.
A treat is something about your hobby that pleased you this year. It may be the aquisition of a plant that has long been on your want list. Or maybe you were able to sprout a cross of your own making. Or maybe it is a particularly spectacular trap that grew. Anything that you might consider a pleasant surprise.

From the Flytrap Store website:
"Polish Dracula" originates from an unknown grower in Poland. "Polish Dracula" has short, pointy teeth that often develop a red coloration which are reminiscent of blood-stained vampire fangs! It's an upright grower (when not Dormant), a beautiful vicious Flytrap! Note: Interestingly, the saw-tooth development for Polish Dracula is seasonal, showing up most strongly in the Summer. Unlike Trev Cox's Dracula, which tends to have a more compact, low-growing growth habit, "Polish Dracula" has large traps on long leaves. But similar to Trev Cox's 'Dracula', "Polish Dracula" is capable of attaining excellent deep red interior trap coloration that sometimes "bleeds" onto the teeth and outside of the trap.So don your costume and show us your favorite 'trick' or 'treat'!
