    sadly, yes. Sadly because the chances of them tossing it on ebay or asking for advice is virtually non-existent. Heck, he/she/they are probably reading these posts and smiling at their cowardice.

    That's a lot of plants, and a lot of space. That would've been quite the operation... What sort of time frame did they have?

    Tony...I added your list on the 4 other forums. Good luck man! I hope atleast some of this is recovered. Its really sad to see plants like burb x edwardsiana, black truncata, upper pitcher stage lowii on that list. I can imagine the attachment you have to those things.

    Pssshhh. Of course they're reading this. And I bet it's someone you know. It's too bad this happened. I was looking forward to the return of your nursery opening up (especially with all of those unanswered PM's and E-mail from over a year ago.....) so I hope this doesn't set it back, or cancel your plans. With the return of another nursery, you've got some very good competition :P

    You DID have business or property insurance, didn't you? You can't replace all of them (of course everything has a price if you have enough money... ), but you can get a hell of a lot of money for what was stolen. I wonder if any of the plants will live. Even a beginner can know what's very rare and what's not and positively identify them; doesn't mean they can grow it.

    Arrrgghhhhhh, Tony!!!

    I and and all the NECPS'rs hope you do re-open. I was hoping to replace my N. burbidgea x edwardsiana I got from you that croaked suddenly over the winter. If it had made it, I would have given it back to you so you could take cuttings/propagate it.

    Presto - Fantastic job on the Amber Alert on the NECPS site, and listing the individual plants.
