    just meant that i dont think someone would give me an a. slack in a trade as most things ive traded havent been of similar value to the slack, i would certianly give a slack for the nep if i had one. i do think kinjie is asking for a fair trade.
    cool whimgrinder, no hard feelings.
    .
    and now i have to find adrian slack for myself wish me luck. LOL

    Hi Scotty,

    I got my Adrian Slacks - yes two different sources - from very reliable people: Brooks Garcia and Jeremiah Harris. I hate to burst your bubble but you are very mistaken. It is definitely Adrian Slack. You maybe confused by the fact that the pitchers had just opened and the angle is a little odd so here's a new pic:

    It is not. This is my picture, not Upwiz's. It is definitely Adrian Slack.

    oooh! now I get it..
    wow, thats Adrian Slack? huh, must be the angle, looks nothing like it to me..
    but if you say so!

    hmmm..I hope we arent starting to get false Adrian Slack's out there..
    that wouldn't be good..
    but it seems we are..Jimmy has one that someone told him was Adrian Slack, and it clearly isnt..
    and now Brokken also has one that, IMO, looks questionable..(although the second photo he posted does look like an Adrian Slack,
    so maybe its just that first photo..)

    and..a lot of the Leah Wilkerson photos in the "CP photo finder" are also looking pretty iffy to me..
    Im afraid we are probably starting to get some fraud in the hobby, related to these plants..probably because these plants go for $$$..

    Scotty: Adrian Slack does not acquire its typical coloration until the pitcher has matured for a couple of weeks. Until such time, the pitchers are fairly green and yellowish. The lid doesn't get its characteristically white top and red lips until maturing. As I mentioned: I got my plants from Brook's Garcia and Jeremiah Harris. Different growing conditions also result in slightly different looks.

    The form of that plant (Brokken's, not Upwhiz) is unmistakably Adrian Slack even though it hasn't colored up yet. Leah Wilkerson is much more robust with a bigger mouth, smaller lid and wider column.
