    lol Laura. Well...anyone who knows Matt has heard the broken-record defense... "I HAVE to sell plants...it enables me to continue to support my rare and valuable collection."

    I guess all the rest of us are getting plants, peat, perlite, moss, sand, vermiculite, pots, trays, distilled water, RO water, fluorescent lights, tubes, electricity, halides, shelving and tanks for FREE. Right?? When you think about it...its really a MIRACLE any of us can afford to GIVE AWAY plant material without expecting anything in return!! lol Wow...how do we DO that!

    Aaanyway...I don't know if I'd buy CPs on eBay unless it was a nursery with a good rep...like Tony. Otherwise you might be purchasing poached plants, diseased plants, damaged plants...who knows.

    For the basic CPs, Phil is always de best! Nice, reliably healthy plants. For the more exotic...I guess everyone has their favorite vendors.

    Well, I was going to post a witty retort to the "I HAVE to sell plants...it enables me to continue to support my rare and valuable collection" but felt it best to leave well enough alone. I do want you all to know that I laughed myself silly while I was typing rejoinders and then deleted them all lest I be viewed as a petty female.

    eBay is a moot point, I couldn't find any Schnell's Ghosts, anthocyanin-free psittacina x rubra jonesiis, or Hurricane Creeks which is what I was looking for. I saw pictures of those in a thread here and they are to die for. I also couldn't find any of the pings or utrics I was looking for. Where do they sell these as it certainly isn't on eBay?

    Another sarra you might want to take a peek at is "Leah Wilkerson"....talk about to die for! Its not in production yet but hopefully one day it will be more readily available. You can see it on Brooks Garcia's website...don't know the web address off the top of my head though. If you do a search on the sarra forum for that you can probably find the thread with photos.

    Oh, I saw that one all right! That didn't miss my eye! They are the ultimate. I have a photo of them as my desktop wallpaper on my computer at the office. The photo was taken by saraceniaobsessed. It was my understanding that these naturally occurring hybrids were found in an undisturbed native community and weren't anywhere on the market? I thought it was a big no no to even try to buy these plants? Supply and Demand and all... who wants some unscrupulous resaler in heat going over to where these plants are located and stripping the entire field in front of the woman's home. If we actively start seeking these plants, we create the demand and then some moron goes and digs up every last plant to fill orders! I don't want to be a part of that downward spiral. I sort of figured it was best not to try to purchase these plants. Is my understanding incorrect?

    Well Jerry, PDX gave me a way to get a hold of the man who has them to sell. Here I sit with credit card in hand in front of my computer and it was too late to call him. Now that's called being all dressed up with no where to go! I so hate having a nice credit card in my hand and not being able to use it! depressing, absolutely depressing. Guess I'll just have to wait until tomorrow goshdarnitall.

    FYI...SarraceniaObsessed is Brooks Garcia. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Brooks is a wonderful talent with sarracenia. He's also helping out greatly with the NASC project. I'm working on his second article for collecting and preparing sarracenia seed.
