    Yesterday me,my wife,my little girl(6) and my mother went to a greenhouse that has african violets.We went in our suv because it has more room.Anyway,when we got there we went inside,it was amazing!The greenhouse was 44' wide and 110' long,it had fans,swamp cooler,heater.......my mother sells african violets on ebay,so she bought 90 plants.Any way while she was picking out plants I'm looking around and I see plants in hanging baskets,ferns,some other plants I could'nt id ,a nepenthes.....A NEPENTHES !!!!! Wow,so I was waiting to ask if he whould sell me a cutting,my mother tells him I grow cps,so he let me look at it, it was huge.He gave me a 1 1/2 foot cutting.It was a N.alata,which I did not have.So I did get something out of that 280 mile trip after all.You never know what you will find at a greenhouse.

    Very nice catch, Jerry.

    You never know what amazing plants may lurk in a greenhouse especially with African Violets.
