Thanks Kevin, for posting that wonderful description of the Darlingtonias.
The writer must have been rather taken by them, imagining herself it seems,
to be one of the insects ensnared by this malevolent green thing. I shall
treat my own diminutive Darlingtonia (which does nothing but produce inch
long pitchers that snake along the surface rather than standing up) with a
little more respect now...

For all those interested in RO ssystems, many aquarium suppliers carry
small scale RO systems that are suitable for home use, and reasonably
priced. Write me and I can send you toll free numbers of one or two mail
order suppliers. Before you invest in one though, perhaps you might want to
get a water quality report from your local water department. Some tap water
is of suprisingly good quality. Often a pH adjustment is all that is needed,
which is easily accomplished.
