    Maybe I should move my amp outside. I haven't seen a pitcher in years. My other lowlanders are happy including northiana and bical - both of them recently repotted.

    yeah same here. the only lowlander that i got is rafflesiana, which i have indoors. i am very limited to the lowlander genre but highlanders are ok for me. check my growlist and you can see that i have way more highlanders than lowlanders

    I just simply can't see why my viewpoint isn't valid. Wouldn't it just be smart to let the plants go to those who would know what to expect?

    Josh, in regards to the CD deal. That would be in a public store. I'm not really sure of any CP place that I've been to that I can pick out plants besides Tony's. I'm saying if I had a flat of N. villosa's for sale, and all the sudden one developed varigation, I'm gonna keep that guy because he has potential. I'm not snagging it out of anyone's hands, just taking it off the sale bench.

    no, its valid and i do understand, not trying to, what you are saying. But i think no one really cares, btw i think there should be enough to go around...

    I'd probably lean towards that.

    No one said anyones view point wasn't valid but the view point has changed from the original "this guy should not sell edwardsiana seedlings to 'just anyone', especially 13 year olds" to "I'm not selling my only seed grown variegated villosa" (??).

    Seperating breeder plants is a totally different attitude than telling someone they can't buy this plant which is maked for general sale because you don't think they know what they're doing based on whatever reason you've concluded from seeing the person for 10 minutes in your store. Maybe that sort of attitude is legal, but I know if I brought a plant that was potted and marked for sale up to the counter and they said something like "you're not important enough to own that plant, put it down". I would be literally beside myself at the audacity of their arrogance. They don't know who I am or what kind of growing setups I have going. I would put the pot down but certainly never return to their store/GH again and probably tell other people what kind of people they are at that place. Not a wise way to conduct business and keep a customer base. If you don't want customers it's fine to be a click and you surely won't have any.
    However, if they said "do you see the red tag, that indicates it's one of our breeder plants, we don't sell any with the red tags" that's a totally different story. End of story.

    My cousin Katie (who is 16) has the same fears with selling her veiled chameleon babies. "How do I know they're going to a good home where they will be well cared for?" is what she always says. But she certainly can not feed and give proper care by herself to 40, 80, and more baby veileds every couple years. Her adults are beautiful but what would ahppen if you where to try and keep every baby that hatched? They have to be sold or given away or risk steadily decreasing culture standards by an overworked caregiver. I suspect Robert can not care for several hundred N. edwardsiana for the rest of his natural life or spend his days emailing every person he's ever sold a plant to, to find out how they're doing. He is likely a very busy man with plenty of other eggs in his basket.

    Of course all vendors hope their cuttings and seedlings go to good homes but in reality we can't hold the worlds hand. I wonder how many cuttings and plants I've sold to various forum members are still alive? I don't even know who all I've sold to. I can't lay awake at night worrying about it because there's nothing I can do to make them grow when I'm not taking care of them. If you can't bare to part with the plants best not to be a vendor and merely trade with your friends, which is fine.
