    Anybody purchase from flytrapshop?

    I usually buy from all the BE distributors on the west coast, and I like the prices, size, and pots that flytrapshop offers and I love the "home grown" look of the plants. Does anybody have any pictures of the Nep's they send to your door? I have two long troughs of Sarrs outside so I'm good on those for years to come.

    I wish they gave out samples... I order a couple hundred bucks of plants a year and experimenting with failed vendors has really cost me dearly this quarter already.

    I ordered many Neps from Andrew, but out of them these two guys stand out.

    N. x 'Miranda'

    and N. sanguinea

    FlyTrapShop has great service, IMO.

    My sang never really looked presentable at all. I'm going to get in contact with Andrew soon. I really just want a functioning sanguinea, it looks so half hearted now but it's going to cost me dearly for shipping for just one plant. I dont think a Raff would work in my closet either...

    My sanguinea took a good 6 months to look presentable, so don't give in and get another quite yet! Unless you want another one.

    Anyone with a green name has bought about $10 worth of stuff from Andy. Quality plants... my Sarracenia I got from him last year are flowering this year!

    You dont understand, it was stunted for a year and JUST started growing. I'm past being excited for it. My sarrs are going to be huge this year. They didn't flower for some reason and started sending up 5" pitchers shoots already. Probably gonna have a few 2 footers this season. That California sun does something special man.

    I'm thinking of ordering some D. Filiformis to plant between the sarr's to prevent any aphids from coming in during the warmer months. Arizona's got some great weather for these guys so I think I'll shoot in an order within next month for some plants. What does your sang look like?

    Aphids will eat your filiformis too. I think you should get one anyway!

    Mine refused to pitcher (and grow) for a few months. It got frozen this winter and is now a hedge of basals outdoors.
