    Notice to those who have received D. filiformis 'Florida Giant' from me

    Recent events have led me to believe that the original plant labeled D. filiformis 'Florida Giant' that I received from a local nursery a few years ago was mislabeled by that nursery. The plants you received from me are all from seed of that original plant and its offspring as I have never had any other form of filiformis other than that one original plant and its progeny. In speaking with the nursery, the plant I got from them is either a hybrid of typical D. filiformis and filiformis 'Florida Giant' or a typical filifromis.

    Please accept my humble apology for the mislabeling of these plants I sent to you all. I am now calling what I have simply D. filiformis, unknown variety.

    Thank you Mickey for not flaming me. I am truly sorry I sent these out mislabeled, but glad I found out so as not to perpetuate the mislabeling further.

    we all probably have done it , you get a plant from someone and its labeled as such , it is real hard sometimes to tell if it is miss labeled so look different when young also, not shore of some of my binitias

    if someone complains alot you can offer a different plant if you want to make them happy, im happy with all you sent me , the sarr flava must have a dozen new pitchers in the last few weeks
    love the maybe giant wish it would bloom so i can grow more
    thanks for all you have sent me your one of the most generous people around

    PS i can flame you if you would like lol

    DJ - no reason to feel bad. When you find something is mis-labeled, you let people know (just like you're doing) & unlike the fraudsters who were selling U. tricolor as U. quelchii and continued to do so even after they were informed of their 'mistake'.
    All the best,

    No need to worry. . . I've sent out my share of mislabeled plants as well. . . Even one that turned out to be a S. Leucophylla XD


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
