    I absolutely HATE my job but not my plants! LOL

    I'm disappointed when I can't succeed at growing the ones I'd like to but I simply don't grow those types who need dormancy or ones I've been failures at more than a couple times. No sense to keep killing them over and over again.

    Not that this is the fault of the plants, but I hate seeing the nepenthes at my local nursery. For some reason they receive almost all lowlanders and they all look terrible and wilted. The soil they're in is almost entirely peat, too. Sorta grosses me out.

    As a rule nurseries don't understand how to care for Nepenthes, CPs and orchids and will not pay attention when you try to tell them how to care for them properly. If you wanna get them there buy them as soon as they come in, before they have a chance to wreck the plants.

    Only plant I've bought from them was a miranda that was in pristine condition. Their orchids and other plants look great, they just receive their cps from one of the crappier wholesalers.

    Speak for yourselves. My local nursery get's 90% of their CP's from me, and they are question asking FREAKS! We'll sit and chat CP's for hours before I even start potting things up. But that also helps.. I pot all the CP's for them.

    It would make a huge difference if they had better media.

    That's the thing you caught me on. They give me the crappy Canadian peat (no offense to our TF Canandians) rather than the awesome pure Michigan peat they sell to me.
