    Ah yes, i have one, but it got a fungal infection on the leaf tips....its been dry for 3 months now, and im about to restart watering! looks VERY thirsty indeed. I like these, they are so different! they remind me of a hawk or eagle swooping down on their prey! GRRRR
    and they smell funny too!

    For once my mum and dad actually marvelled at the plant rather than reply with the occasional "uh huh. very nice dear" that i usually get. Congrats Lars!
