    I can't believe of the low life in this small hobby who resorts to thievery. Just a disturbed sad person is at work here. The satisfaction in this hobby is when one can get a plant at like 2 inches diameter...grow it till mature size with their own effort.

    I am so sorry to hear this. There is nothing worse than a thief. I had my lowland GH burgled numerous years ago and like Ludwig had to install a security system. They took six plants. Although not near as rare as yours. About 2 months later three showed back up on my doorstep half dead.
    I am not known in the Nep community but I do get rare plants offered to me from time to time from various sources. Some Of them may be a little shady. I have your list and if I come across any of them, you'll be the first to know.
    Also we need to be on the lookout for cuttings of these same plants down the road, if the originals don't turn up. If it is an experienced grower maybe this is what he/she has in mind since you can't show these plants to anyone in the CP community.
    Well anyway, whoerver did this should be hung by his testicles from the nearest tree.

    1 N. ventricosa x lowii American clone from J. Shafer 16"
    3-4 pots of N. lowii x ventricosa red clone APA and APB
    Crap! To be so terribly specific. It was obviously no idle theft. It is one thing to take everything in sight but another to pick and choose so carefully. One saving grace is that they are plants after all (and a couple probably on CITES lists) and are still very likely to be in the US. It is obviously someone with a sophisticated setup sufficent enough to maintain them and /or someone -- a dealer -- with a client list with very specific requests. I have never even seen a N. truncata "Black" . . .

    Hey, what if it's a woman? We have to devise a punishment with that in mind, remember?

    Tony, I'm sorry to hear this terrible news. It hurts to know it was someone from the small pool of personal visitors who were allowed entrance to your magical nep kingdom. who must've done the thing.

    The rest of y'all:
    I've been worried about thefts such as these ever since I first saw people posting their addresses in their signatures. There are greedy people out there who will do such nefarious acts as this. I urge you all to change your signatures if you have your home addy listed there. Get a PO box it's nice for the plants too not beng trucked around all day.
