how much I HATE FREAKING GRASSHOPPERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been very very very very busy lately and have had no time to take care of my pot of CPs. Finally last night I had a few minutes. Apparently a grasshoper had taken up residence in the pot and had been happily eating my Cps for several days. Nothing was spared, the VFTs were torn up, all my Pitcher plants were shredded, it even ate most of a D. filiformis. So after about an hour of trimming that saw the removal of over 50 pitchers I guess everything survived. I hope.

The only good news was finding the fat little F'er in the bottum of the pot. It's now little more than dust.

I was just having a conversation with another CP forum member about how much trouble I am having with them as well. They must be pretty bad this year everywhere,.
