Well I've been interested in the CP buisiness for the last 2 years with it actually helping me choose my education choice (Botany). One of the first things that caught me being a Canadian is how difficult it can be to find the darned things in the country. Also looking out of country it becomes apparent how difficult it is to obtain import permits. I may just be an Albertan, but I wanted some and I want some more so to all of you Canucks just starting out, Check out your local nurseries, Home Depots, Lowes, Walmarts, and the occasional time the SuperStore or Loblaws carries them. Or if your like me you can try these websites that I have found.
This is the only place thus far that I have ordered live plants from which arrived in pretty good condition and are currently growing healthily. One drawback was that they took a long time to reply to emails.
Rare Exotic Seeds
I ordered some seeds from this fins site and they arrived very shortly after, and the germination rates are high.
Right now this is all I can think of off the top of my head if there are any other resources or vendors any one can think of it would be much apprieciated by myself and other Canadian growers.
