    back2eight- from what I've seen, the only people who actually respond to identification requests (regardless of where they're posted) are the people who check the Identify that Plant! section on a regular basis.

    First off the plants are much too young for all but a true expert who has had many many years experience growing and studying many species to identify at this stage. While there are members who have published many works and have spent many years studying Drosera they rarely frequent this site. You'd probably get a better response on the CPUK forums.

    Secondly, if you purchased them from AG3 than they have recommended "finishing times" that you grow the plants in recommended conditions before selling/reselling them. For Drosera usually 4-6 weeks for 3" pots and 8-10 weeks for 4" pots.

    Thirdly picking fights with the moderators is not likely to get you very far since you are treading on the ground of advertising that you sell carnivorous plants from probably one of the very same wholesalers that Andrew purchases from.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    If one looked at the situation with a little compassion, I believe they would realize that no one is "picking fights with the moderators". I think it is more a situation of expressing frustration from being in an awkward position, and being reminded of the unusual situation they are actually in here.

    Indeed, even bringing up AG... is in violation of: "we do not allow the discussing of "other" CP vendors" if you want to point fingers. Fortunately it seems that tolerance is given unless it gets "out of hand", as this would be a rather unsavory sterile environment if the rules that were created were followed to the letter, with zero tolerance.

    For people who share a common interest of loving the same expression of life and nature (CP's), it is amazing to me just how little tolerance and care people show here for one another.

    It was thoughtful of you to point out exactly, all the wrong things she was doing, for all to see however. Now she can hopefully feel horribly guilty and we can all look down on her!

    In reality, I personally think one reminder for her was enough, and to let it go at that.
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
