    A while ago I lost all my neps , I got the same admonishment about asking for plants that you did. People still sent me cuttings

    IT'S PAYBACK TIME!!!!!!!!!

    I am just taking my plants out of storage, but I know I have a bunch of stuff to send you .. pretty basic, maybe a few nice hybrids... and maybe a couple of surprises. I can also throw in some drosera and a VFT if you like :-)

    Congratulations on your house

    PS
    Am I the only one who has noticed that we refer to just about all CP by their latin names .. except VFTs ... why is that ?

    Many people in this community abbreviate the names of most genera: "Neps" instead of Nepenthes - "Sarrs" instead of Sarracenia. Its true that Dionaea gets abbreviated to "VFT" but likely because its common name is three words and cannot be contracted as readily as the others. That said, I am an exception in that I do not use these casual abbreviations and nicknames - I prefer to use full genera and species names; I value accuracy.
