I used to collect comics and keys. I had over 1000 keys before I left them at the last place I lived and forgot them. Oh and I forgot about celebrity autographed photos.

I think I collect mostly dust. LOL

I do have almost every Stephen King novel he's published, except for the Bachman novels. But other than that I've been moving around too much for the past 5 years to even try to collect anything since it would just have to live in storage for a while.

I am jealous of your collections! Pretty betta stamps, gorgeous plants and pictures! My Chloe cat, aka SpiderMonkey, makes it her goal to climb up as high and kill as many of my plants as she can. My plant collection has been reduced to a handful of bamboo, half dead corn plant and a pothos.

I forgot, until the mention of book collections, I do have almost all of Christopher Pike's books. He was my favorite author in junior high/high school, and I have dozens of his books and read them all a dozen times. And now that I think about it, I think I'll re-read one this weekend. :king6525:

I collect carnivorous plants; I'm still a novice and so far my main limitation is financial. I have 17 or so varieties, I think, with multiple plants of some of those (some grow a bit like weeds). Honah also has quite a few varieties that I don't have. My dream plants that I don't have yet are Darlingtonia californica, Heliamphora, Cephalotus, Nepenthes jamban, and a few Dionaea muscipula (Venus flytrap) cultivars, including 'Red Dragon', 'B-52', and 'Dente'. On some it's because I don't have the ability to make a proper setup yet, on others it's just I cant afford to buy more plants yet. XD

Drosera aliciae and a terrestrial bladderwort.

Posted Image
Sarracenia purpurea purpurea.

Posted Image
Nepenthes ventricosa.

Bad photo of the profusion of pitchers my N. spectabilis produces.

Posted Image
Bad photo of my N. sibuyanensis. It's a touchy plant but I've had it for several years. I'm not sure it's going to produce any offshoots though, and it's getting pretty old.

Posted Image
A winter photo of my Venus flytrap, as it was starting to go dormant. I also have a Colorado Giant variety flytrap, and a bunch of other regular flytraps.

Posted Image
Winter photo of my Sarracenia pitchers; S. leucophylla 'Tarnok', S. minor, S. alabamensis and 'Judith Hindle'. I just mowed all the growth off these for spring and repotted, so they're looking pretty boring right now, but soon the new growth will start to show!

Posted Image
Pinguicula laueana.

Posted Image
Same sundew and bladderwort from above, a year later; look how the bladderwort has spread!

I'll try to get updated, pretty spring pictures. These are mostly crummy shots!

I also collect books.

And dragon statues, but I don't have any photos of those, I don't think.

And Zlato and I collect art of our characters in adventure type scenes. XD

Beautiful plants Tser! We had a venus fly trap once, and quite promptly killed it. Some of those don't even look carnivorous. And I think your book collection is bigger than mine! Half of mine are in the attic in boxes labelled '"boring" school books- not suitable for display.' :puppyeyes: We have pretty crummy MDF bookshelves though right now so I can't put nearly as many out as I'd like without ruining them permanently.

We have thousands of books, I really have no idea how many. We had one room shelved wall to wall to accommodate them.
