    *PLANTS STOLEN* Help find the thief.

    Hi Everyone.


    Over the weekend I had a number of irreplaceable plants stolen from the greenhouse.

    I am still doing construction on the new greenhouses and quite frankly this gives me pause to wonder if I should just tear them down.

    Pass the word.

    Keep a look out for black truncata, trusmadiensis, a variety of EP plants, large macrophylla .. and I dunno what else..

    They new what they wanted and I suspect they have been to the greenhouse. Which means it's a pretty short list.

    Tony
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Damn, those were some nice plants. Sorry they got stolen. Wish I could help but I live on the other side of the country.

    Tony!! Long time no see! That's terrible that someone broke into your greenhouses and stole plants. What kind of person....

    Don't let it get you down, though. Nothing is irreplaceable. Make a list of what's gone, and I bet the good people here will help you replace some of them at least.

    VERY glad to see you here Tony but not under these circumstances!

    If you have any pics to show...give them to us and maybe we can make like a "Wanted" poster so people can be on the look out for these plants. Not everyone here would know what they look like.

    Wanted posters work to catch criminals all the time.

    I'm really sorry to hear about this. It's sickening someone in the CP community would do this...

    Hope all is well otherwise.

    Those are really rare plants so unless whoever stole them keeps them in their private collection they have a good chance of showing up once the word gets out. It's not everyday you see a mature macrophylla or a trusmadiensis for sale(or even pics of them for that matter). I'm terribly sorry to hear about this though. I don't have anything 1/100th as rare as the plants you listed and I'd be devastated if mine were stolen. Spread the word and hopefully something will show up. Don't let it get you down and make you give up because if it does then they win.

    Wow some people are just heartless. Its sad to see when you have to put padlocks on a greenhouse to keep people out. Hope they will be caught soon
