    Angry Looking for pygmies

    I was looking to get started with pygmies, so i gave ***** a try.

    so yeah, i feel like i got screwed.

    I've had good luck with ***** before. really, i have. generally, i have no problem with them at all. until i bought a D. Scorpiodes.

    the site lists it as "unpotted near flowering size" at $3.25. this, in my opinion, is a good deal, for perhaps a small colony of young scorpiodes or perhaps the advertized "near flowering size" plant.

    what i recieved was a single tiny plant barely 1/4 of an inch in size. probably sick, all the traps are sagging, but hey! i cant tell if its really sick because its so small. i doubt it will survive replanting.

    so that unpleasant experience aside, im looking for a few pygmies. PM me and we can come up with a trade.
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    That is a bit small.
    That plant usually suffers a lot from shipping though, so thats normal that it doesn't look very good. Its stress, not sickness

    they are kind of delicate. you may not have any better luck w/o buying them potted.

    Did you talk to them about your concerns?

    Hey guys, I've removed the name of the company.... I don't allow people to recommend suppliers and to be fair, names shouldn't be used for this either... As it will typically turn in to "Well try *** they got good plants..."

    As a side note, I have some D. scorpiodes gemmae on my plants that are likely not going to be sold in my store...so, I would gladly send them out to you. Send me a PM with your address if you're interested.
    Andrew

    PS - if you rather a plant or a few.. over some gemmae... It will cost you priority shipping....

    Hello, I was basically offering this to Meaven... But to the half a dozen people that have pmed me, I may be able to get you some too... Please no more pms asking for some though... Since this wasn't meant to be a free for all. I'm pretty sure the season is comming and there will be plenty here as there is every year. I just don't have enough to support a full out giveaway right now i don't think.
