    **AMBER ALERT** Stolen Nepenthes! **PHOTOS**

    Below is a list of Nepenthes stolen from the greenhouse of Tony Paroubek.

    Please be on the look out for these plants or cuttings of these plants. While some of these Nepenthes may well be in collections, legal owners should be able to verify their origin (purchase, trade, etc.) without hesitation.

    The thief may lay low for a while so don't forget this as weeks go by. Keep your eye out on eBay, other auction sites, photos of private collections, greenhouses you might visit, etc. These plants are SOMEWHERE! Let's find 'em!

    2 N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana 12"
    1 N. trusmadiensis 12"
    2 N. macrophylla 10-12" and several 3-4"
    2 N. truncata black 12-16"
    1 N. sibuyanensis x trusmadiensis 12-14"
    1 N. jacquelineae red 12"
    6? N. truncata x trusmadiensis 2-3"
    1-2 N. maxima x trusmadiensis southern carnivores clones 10"
    1 N. lowii trusmadi 14" upper pitcher stage
    1 N. ventricosa squat x (spectabilis x northiana) clone APA clump in pot
    1 N. ventricosa x lowii American clone from J. Shafer 16"
    3-4 pots of N. lowii x ventricosa red clone APA and APB

    If you see or hear of anything regarding the theft of these plants, please contact Tony Paroubek.

    This is approximately 20+ plants...not easy to hide! If you have leads or knowledge you can give it to Tony privately and no one will know.

    Contact info:

    I got to wonder how did you even get one in the first place?
    A little in appropriate....

    This is truly horrible, and i hope you can get your plants eventually.

    I am certain he didn't mean it that way, obregon562.

    Regardless, I hope you can find these plants before it's too late. How hard will they be to replace?
