    Wow...congratulations. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] That's quite a haul of some really nice plants.

    It must be nice to be able to go there...I've seen some nice photos of their plants and greenhouses.

    Yeah it is really nice to go there. They have larger plants, and plants that they don't keep in stock very often, for sale in the nursury that they don't have for sale online, or they can't ship. Some of the plants for sale were almost two feet tall and had upper pitchers on them. They also had some N. villosas, N. khasianas, and some flowering size sarracenias. I even saw a N. Spathulata (for sale) that was in flower!

    Go up there while you still can, they have a 20% off sale on everything until the end of december.

    California Carnivores is AWESOME!! I go there all the time. I bought these my first trip. They were my first plants.

    Heliamphora heterodoxa x minor
    Drosera capensis
    Nepenthes bicalcarata
    Nepenthes albomarginata 'spotted'
    Pinguicula primulifora

    They are a bit pricey, but the quality is the best I have ever seen. BTW- HUGE heliamphoras there. WOW!

    I live in Las Vegas, NV, but my dad works at the airport so we fly for free all over the country. We go to CC as a 'day trip' lol.
    When my dad saw their greenhouse, he was inspired to build me one! And that is how I got my greenhouse!

    Nice, D. capensis is a great first plant. Mine was D. capensis (seed grown from my good friend Andrew). I've got a Bical too, it's grown two new pitchers for me in the 3 months that i've had it. Albomarginata is great too, i have yet to get one though.

    Did i mention that the reinwardtiana is the beautiful red variation. Go there, now, they only have two left!

    I myself have two greenhouses, they aren't very big though, at least compared to theirs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] One of mine is 6' by 6' by about 7' tall (stovehouse). The other is 8' by 8' by about 7' tall (warmhouse).

    I can't wait until my truncata grows at large as the one they have in their hothouse. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I have to agree that they are pricey though, i say a <2 inch large N. inermis for $80!!!

    yeah, I saw the truncata. It is HUGE. so are the amps and bicals! Peter gives good trade offers though, when I was twelve (a year ago) He traded me a $40 full grown S.leuco for my one inch long aldrovanda! He's great! lol
    lotsa creepy/weird figurines in pots and on the ground though
