    Cool

    I'm going to Niagara Exotics soon... I certainly hope... Depends on if I can get a ride... Half an hour, why not? Thats my question... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    I talked to him about those three plants already, so that IS the price... Ouch in the pocket, but I guess in the long run its a good idea... Hmmm...

    Greg, I suggesting to start off with one. What if you did buy them all and they all kiked the bucket? Then 60$ down the drain. Start off with a Jonesii if you want rarity or start off with Oreophila for a beautiful plant.

    Some of the colour forms are pretty rare. There is an all green mutant form of S. rubra ssp. jonesii which I believe is not very common at all in US cultivation. Even the all green form of purpurea ssp venosa is rare. I have only seen a dozen or so at ABG. That plant was a 'one off' find in the wild 9 years ago.

    All I am saying is start off slow. And I am trying to help you with your budget, don't go on a buying craze jsut get 1 or 2 this time. But of course it is your money and entirely up to you.

    I don't think Parasuco would kill any Sarr..........

    BTW, Parasuco pick a number 1 through three.

    I understand, kinda, your thinking... But I would still have to pay the full sixty bucks, eventually, even If i only start with one... Theres that, and the fact that I'm not sure the next time I'de go out to Carls to buy it... Hey, NepG... Practice what you preach, huh? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Mr.Lets go out of state, and spend hundreds of dollars on Neps... Hehehe... j/k...

    Tristan, 3

    If you are gonna tell me which plant to buy, I'm getting all three...

    Ok.. here's my 2 cents..
    Go for it! If I were in your shoes I'd get all 3 if I could afford it.
    And I agree with Tristan. I don't think the Sarracenia's are all going to just kick the bucket. Seems to me they'll be in capable hands.
