    I came in to work early yesterday (Saturday) so decided to go on a stroll in the indoors section of the garden centre. I had been checking the CP table for a few weeks but the usual flowering, croaking VFTs occupied the half empty display.
    We got a new shipment in of Sarracenia x stevensii, Drosera paradoxa, Nepenthes "alata" (ventrata), and a newcomer, Cephalotus follicularis (all from Holland as usual). I decided to save two from work, reason being that they weren't shabby at all for the price they were going at (plus my staff discount):


    Big CP companies are quickly catching up, however I'll see if their quality lives up to that of the nursery-grown plants from home.

    Wow! What a nice little plant. I haven't seen one of these guys in the US yet. Thanks for sharing your find and good fortune.

    Cephs have certainly become more abundant. I used to trade Ceph divisions for people's children. Their nice kids; not the brats. Now that Cephs are more common, no one will trade a child for one anymore, but people offer wives. But my wife says I'm not allowed to have another, so I traded my Ceph for a Nep.

    Oh... see... now you're throwing subjectivity into the equation here. I only deal with raw numbers. And you know what Woody Allen says, "Subjectivity is objectivity".
