    hey guys,

    just a little note to keep in mind who is paying for these forums, and what he does for a living.

    thanks,

    believe me when I tell you that tilleys, did NONE of the work themselves. if they did, it was certainly on accident. don't get me wrong, they have some nice water plants that they grow and grow well, but infact any work they did on the cps was quite by accident. they don't even know of dormancy for the plants.

    I don't know about the other cps. I only saw the ones that were outside, went in to an outdoor greenhouse, saw they had no others and left. I have seen them leave plants over the winter when they are closed with no attention given to their watering needs. I like the place, and the people, but they have no clue about cps.

    technoracer-I do the majority of my business through this site, it is simply a gripe about prices, nothing further

    Hi Jim
    I am from the area, I am heading up to get my mom this weekend and will stop by tillys. and I am not sure of the other place. How far it is from tillys Kutz town.. Kutz is where i am picking up my mom . Baby is comming soon and need to have heeer around for help.. As for tillys thye didn.t raise the plants , they ordered them from Another state 3 years agaon and in winter they place them in the outside Greenhouse.. What they did was see that some grow Very good and some don't so they up the price of the good ones and discount the not so good ones. I passed Copy of **********s Web sight and they siad they would take a look at it and if they get more in they would consider ordering from them if they could produce large orders of plants that could live in our area..

    So maybe we can help Our favorite Sight and pass them some ordering by giving places such as tillys or others thier info !!!!!!!

    Food for thought

    Jim

    A plant sitting in a nursery cost money every year simply by sitting there. It cost money in lost revenue by taking up space for something else that could be brought in and sold. It cost money in water, supplies, care costs etc. Sounds like they were priced at one #### of a deal and they finally realized they were giving them away for what they cost to grow for all those years.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    yes, it was a heck of a good deal. I picked up multiple plants there, and was VERY bummed to see the price hike. I guess they just finally realized it. the wierd thing is this. they had s. alata they reduced in price along with some pretty good combos by ten bucks. I didn't sit around to see why, maybe I should have. It'll give me reason to go and see again next time I am up there.
