    Hi alltogether,

    please do keep your ethics high and don't buy poached toubers!!! As far as I know nearly all tubers Allen sells, are collected from the wild - illegal of course. Think of it: Who would be able to produce tubers of a reasonable size (which does take some years of growth) for that few dollars Allen is asking for them?

    Please do only buy nursery grown tubers!

    Australia is far away, but buying poached Drosera is as ugly as buying poached Sarracenia or Darlingtonia - which none of you would do!

    George,

    To be honest, I don't remember getting a SASE or what-not from you, unless it's in the Sarra seed you sent, lol.
    E-mail your address to

    Killerplants@aol.com

    and I will mail one ASAP. Sorry for that.

    Regards,

    Joe

    BTW, if you saw Lowrie's catalog and noticed seed of N. edwardsiana ,Trusmadi, Sabah, even if that was viable seed, it would have to be N. macrophylla, as that grows on Trusmadi and N. edwardsiana is only found on Kinabalu.
    I guess it goes back to the name N. edwardsiana ssp macrophylla for this kind of thing to happen, and most consider N. macrophylla to be of species rank.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Thanks for pointing that out, Joachim. I was wondering about that.
