Howdy folks, Peter here at California Carnivores in cold California. Well, at
least the north state is cold while southern Cal simmers in 80 degree
temperatures. It seems "these days" we have no more normal weather; every year
it's extremes!
      I got a call from a producer at the Home and Garden Network, which is a
cable network here in the States (don't know if its overseas). She reports
that the program called "Extreme Gardens" will premier on the network January
17, Sunday, at 5 pm Pacific Time, and it has the segment they filmed here at
the nursery last summer. It will run about a dozen times over the next few
months. We haven't seen the segment ourselves, and we don't get the network
on our cable service, but the producer promises to send us a copy.
    As to the Byblis gigantea discussion, as someone already mentioned, my
experiment with the plants outdoors showed they survived brief freeze, but
both plants died after being waterlogged for eight months in last year's El
Nino and 90 inches of rain we got. I'll not try them again outdoors in winter
      We have only a few of Tom Carow's 1999 Calendars left, so if anyone's
still interested, he who hesitates....
      Th-th-th-th-th-th-that's all folks! Peter
