    I don't know if that is directed at me in particular Philcula, but I will post a reply to you.

    I'm not trying to screen out anyone or telling who this guy should sell to or not, I don't even know who he is. All I'm saying is, that whomever the vendor is, he should be responsible enough to sell the plants to a good home, where they can be raised correctly. Do you honestly think I would sell 2 N. edwardsiana seedlings to a 13 yr old kid that just bought his first N. alata?! You've got to be kidding me if you would do that!

    It shouldn't make a difference whether it is a 13 year old kid or a 45 year old man. I was twelve when I started growing, but that doesn't mean I didn't know what I was doing. Kids can read, too. I saved up lots of money to buy plants and could've had a villosa or a hamata (back then everyone said it was impossible to grow on Wistuba's forum) but I didn't because I knew the conditions they needed and I also knew I didn't have them. If a 13 year old kid has perfect conditions for edwardsiana, knows how to take care of one, and is able to shell out that kind of cash, why not let 'im have at it? I realize that if someone just bought their first nep, edwardsiana probably isn't a good choice, but I still don't think we should judge growers based on age or years growing. Both are (in most cases) completely irrelevant.

    P.S.- I'm not a 13 year old kid or a 45 year old man, I don't have the right conditions to grow edwardsiana, and I'm most certainly not gonna buy one!
    Check my growlist! Nothing currently available for trade...

    Well, I'm past 45. Maybe I shouldn't be allowed to grow plants because I have fewer years left on this planet than most of you?

    Come on, people. Demanding "qualifications" of growers seems a bit much. Of course, a greedy person would never lie about his growing experience, right?

    Apparently the source of these plants is limiting the number of plants one person can buy. IMHO, this seems like the best way to insure thay will be divided among numerous growers and thus ensure the largest number will thrive.

    End of my rant,

    Well, if it was a botanical garden trying to disperse them so all the eggs were not in one basket in case of a accident, that's one thing.
    But seeing how it is a vendor(as NG said, though his operation changed directions in Nov.), I don't think you can legally tell somebody their $$ are not as valid as this person's.
    I am 41 and have been growing longer than NG has been alive, but he definitely has more experience with highland neps than I do. So what is experienced?
    I beleive Tent mentioned that he knew they were TC, so down the road, we may all have a hot with no guilt attached anyway...

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Thank you D. Lybrand, killerplantsguy, and Joe for being the voices of reason. At least someone out there sees the irrelevance of screening. It makes one come off as an elitist.

    Nep. gracilis - my comment was not directed at you personally. I was making a general statement in the event more people started chiming in to support the screening idea.

    Oh yeah....I'm 44 and have been growing for 33 years

    Ugh only 33 years Phil? I dont know if this will qualify you for a N. edwardsiana. Expecially since you started when you were 11. Maybe eventually your resume will be good enough.

    LOL Wolf! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    At this stage in my development the only thing I want is to keep what I have alive and thriving....and to stop creaking when I get out of bed every morning!
