    my point with Jerremiah is he was dealing with plants in the edwardsiana class at 14ish. i really dont think that there are enough kids in the 12-13 age group that would be able to lay their hands on the funds to get these edwardsiana to make a darn bit of difference one way or the other for the individual selling them to be worried, i figure the USPS/fedex/UPS will kill off more of the seedlings that will ever wind up in the 10-12 year olds hands.

    f....whatever the rest of your username is, the only reason I am saying this is because I was once condemned for this. I was a young kid and couldn't handle the ultrahighland plants. I listened to the advice and I am a successful cultivator of them as of today. I speak from, gotta love this word, experience.

    rattler, like I said, MOST kids at that age couldn't handle those types of plants, Jeremiah was an exception, he did his homework and is a successful at them. Lets put it this way, would you trust a 12-13 yr old, who just got into CP's with your entire collection? I sure the frig wouldn't. I know some people that have been in this hobby for a long time and still can't figure out why plants grow like this or grow like that, I'm pretty darned sure a 12 year old couldn't figure it out.


    I wonder why I bother to post, its 1 against about 5 people, a never ending battle, even as legitimate as I can be no one can within reason accept anything I say about age and experience. Lets just put an infant in charge of a handgun while where at it.

    NG - You're not the one selling the plants so please stop. If a 11 or 12 yr old kid can afford one and the vendor wants to sell it, so be it. It's not your place to say. You're a moderator and you're not making a very good example of yourself if you keep obsessing over this subject. Time to move on young man.

    i agree with phil NG....its called "experimenting".... i tried out a newt(off topic) for a pet and it died [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/ghostface.gif[/img] . i tried a tarantula but within 3 years it died. and now im with my sugar glider who is doing awesome! the moral "you never know until you try". i think i just summed everything up for ya....BATTLE ENDED! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] (score one for GLIDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
    you never know a kid could provide the perfect conditons for a true highlander but he doesnt know that. he would get a bical then it would die then another lowlander and it would die...this kid wouldnt know what he had the potential for. so he goes and gets a hamata and it works and thrives for him/her. he makes cuttings and gets alot more neps and the rest is history. it reminds me of well me! i wanted to get lowlanders but i couldnt provide the night time temps so i went to intermediets. and they are perfect temps now.

    lol sorry Nep G its been a long week and im probably just in an arguing mood. but point of fact a 12 year old probably could take care of my entire collection, i only am actually taking care of things maybe 15 minutes a week, the rest of the time they are on their own and im having minimal problems. actually the easy stuff is giving me more of a headache then the "difficult" species. the aristo, hamata, jac. x izumae, lowii, epiphytic Utrics ect are doing wonderfully with 15 minutes care per week. but i cant keep my freaking D. regia happy to save my life.

    Odd way to treat the voice of wisdom... NepG and I are similar in age; our collections are radically different. He was given advice, followed it, and reaped the rewards. He is right to hand that advice on to the next generation.

    I wish I had had that kind of sense a few years back. At one point I had a 50 gallon tank full of nepenthes in my room, under the window. No lights. Nobody ever told me that I needed certain conditions, and it was a long time before I realized myself. I accepted several nice nepenthes from a generous guy who was dissolving his collection at the time, and looking back, I certainly didn't have a good home for them. If I had a buck to spare, I would choose to spend it on plants rather than the equipment needed to house them properly. So I learned the hard way how to grow every single plant I grow now.

    I hope the seller is being wise in his choice of customers. I also hope every customer will have a good reason for whatever the condition of their plants a few years from now. I'm not going to tell anyone how I think they should do it, but we should all be aware that genetic material does not have a monetary value. Acres of rainforest are destroyed everyday by "frustrating business"
