A year's a long time...I would be scared to see my plants after a year under my maid's care! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] You going to be an exchange student or what?
Dangit...I've just realised the Drosophyllum is only for the ICPS meeting, can't be sent by mail. Just realised that they did add more than just the top part about the ICPS...THEY'VE GOT CEPHS!!! Wooooohooooo! Pretty expensive though...and they haven't added many tropical dosera except for slackii (BTW is that named after Adrian Slack or is it just coincidence?) Expensive also...well have a look through the new ones and see if got anything you like!
Hmmm I'm interested in the 'special order for begginers' seeds though, since its for begginers, might find some rare species in that 150...hope they have it labelled though, otherwise its a taxonomic nightmare, on the other hand it could be exciting, hmmm?
Well, is anyone still interested in ordering (and consolidating) for this year? I'll happily chip in if anyone's up for an order, but I think it would be too expensive (becuz of the phyto certs, shipping and all that costs) + I'll have to order a minimum of 60EUR!!!

Maybe we should wait for ebeyonder to get back (hehe since I already spent my future allowance on the NASC...) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
Yes, I am going to be an exchange student. I may still be ok with placing an order since my maid or someone can always collect the plants on my behalf. However, I'm apprehensive about consolidating the orders since if the plants arrive after I leave, there could be some logistical problems with the payment, delivery, etc. Last thing I want is for all the plants to die while I'm gone!

I think that yes, Slackii is named after Slack. Jason, I don't know about seeds... they take so long to germinate and then even longer to grow into something vaguely resembling an adult plant. Besides, kind donors across the world are always happy to trade (or even give!) away seeds. That's why I was pretty excited about ordering live plants from BCP... somemore the new list has some plants which I really, really want, such as the red filiformis, which seeds I have but are still tiny points of greenish-yellow after 6 mths!!!
The Cep, I think, is fairly priced. I got one from Witabsu with Cindy and guqin last yr and if my memory serves me well, that cost 20 sing bucks but it was very small and died within a week. I think BCP is more generous with the size of its plants and the ceps may actually be bigger. Gotta find out from them. Anyway they do say it's in "clumps", so that prob means bigger plants?
Oh yes, anyone been to FEF or other nurseries? Any new CPs for sale in S'pore? Whatever happened to the CP corner in FEF Thomson which was even supposed to have cobra lilies? LOL.
Anyway, only Jason, ebeyonder are still interested, right?
I'm working part time, so no one will be at home during the weekdays to receive the parcel.
If you guys don't mind waiting till early August(when I stop work), then i'll try to consolidate the orders.
Wooooooohoooooooo! Exams over! Holiday for 2 straight months now *bursting with excitment* [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
After sobering down a little...
No, I don't think so, but I plan on taking a tour of all the nurseries in singapore tomorrow, I'll inform you of any. I'll also be going to the SBG, last time I went it was way too dark to see anyhting at night.

Maybe the nursuries learnt to order plant that can better survive the singaporean weather. Wonder where all the FEF pings and capensis went?

I think I'll flood my plants before going on holiday, asking my maid to water them is as dangerous as asking her not to... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
*sigh* feel so excited, relieved, and anticlimatic... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
