    You know, I actually bought some U.bisquamata back in the day on purpose. It does a great job of keeping down the moss and peat in the pygmy dew pots, but I realize I'm the antichrist for even suggesting it's not a weed...

    Have I told you yet that your icon makes me crack a smile every time I see you post?

    Anyway, I'd make the trip. It's amazing to walk through his greenhouses. I've even gone up from San Diego to go see what's in stock when I was on the hunt for a particular plant.

    I feel the same way. Shipping plants domestically should be treated as though you're exporting them: unpotted, moist sphagnum around the roots, no pests, correct labels, etc. Drink responsibly, wear a condom, don't ship pests - if we work together, we can keep this community clean.

    +1 My only beef with this little weed is it invading other Utric pots. I love the little lawn around my dews!

    I also do not mind the U. bisquamata. I think it makes a nice looking ground cover and has quite attractive flowers.
