    Cool Soon to be Plant order!

    Hello,
    I got an Honor Roll at school so my dad is going to buy me a few cp's.
    I'm planning to order a S. Alata, S. Flava var. Rugelii, and S. Leucophylla from Andy and I was wondering if anybody here had any experience with any of these plants. I would appreciate if anybody who grew these plants had any pics to post of the size that Andy offers.

    Good job getting Honor Roll. That's what it's all about... don't forget that.


    As for the plants, you can search the forums to get all the info you need. They are quite easy starters. I know Andrew (and maybe some other members) posted pictures of the rhizomes/plants here some where...

    I have a 4.0 gpa, I am not eligible for the honor roll though because I am a freshman I have to complete a school year first.
    Congrats welcome to the parents buy you plants club. sarracenia are not tropical they will need a dormancy during winter. They don't need high humidity and they grow well in full sun and a 50/50 mixture of peat moss and perlite can be used for them.
    Andy sells nice plants but since sarracenia can get tall and also because it's just the beginning of growing season, your plants are likely to have haircuts.

    MG,

    I have actually purchased all the plants you listed from Andy and they all arrived in great condition and well packaged AND they were much bigger than you might expect them to be for the price. you cant go wrong if you order thru him(flytrapshop.com), most of my collection is thru him!

    dm,
    he's got new triangular boxes that allows him to ship some pretty tall plants. its like 2 ft tall.

    Thanks for the replies ,
    I've never seen triangular "boxes" though it is a good idea to ship tall plants.
    billyh, could you post pics of when they arrived if you can?
    Thanks,

    Looks like the topic is pretty well covered I'll just add the following:
    Billy- I even have larger boxes if needed hehe I always hated getting sarrs that had been cut. So I'm doing everything I can to not have to do that. And so far, I haven't

    edit: I don't have any current pics of just what you asked about.. but here were some camera phone pics I took randomly just the other day.

    Thanks Andy for the pics, I see some leucophylla's and Flava's in the first one. I think I'll make the order tommorow.
    BTW, do all the sarrs have pitchers? I too hate getting pitcherless plants.

    They all have at least started... but not all of them are completely open yet.
    Take care,
    Andrew
