    n. peter d amato

    just out of the shipping box , wanted to do a pic or two more , when I got in from work ,but had to mow, so here it is , at the shop , i get most plants delivered there so i can get them out of the box asap.
    I didnt get to pot it up either, ill do it first thing before work.
    they also sent a freebie , which i didnt get a photo of either it's. n.'Sabre' very nice but no pitchers , it has some developing though .
    Is there any way to encourage the nodes on the peter d amato, to grow? without cutting the main stem

    OMG how do I get a free N.Sabre?

    Very nice plant! I'm sure the cup will encourage strong new growth

    Buy a Peter D'Amato?

    That PDA wouldn't happen to have been the one on eBay would it?

    someone else is also gonna have to confirm but i think you got ripped off.....i think that is not 'Peter D'amato', the mature pitchers should not be green......even first opened up mine has more red than that one.....looks to me like you may have a different ventricosa x lowii clone and not Peter D'.....

    Bend the growth tip below the roots.

    Brokken, I hope I haven't stepped on your , or any other toes here.
    Were you bidding? was anyone else?
    Wish someone would have responded to the thread I posted right after the auction was pulled, I had asked if anyone here had seen the auction or knew what happened.
    Might have been able to save me, if you were watching and knew it wasn't PDA.
    As with every thing. Live loose learn
    If it's not PDA that will be ok, I just paid more for a lowii x ventricosa red, and im pretty sure this one is a lowii x ventricosa at the very least.

    .
    the moral dilemma was ,should I, or shouldn't I?
    .
    When the auction was canceled before its end, I was stumped, so I messaged the seller, and he e-mailed me in a few days, saying someone had offered to just buy the nep., and after he had canceled the auction, the guy backed out , and he suggested i was next up to buy it, if I still wanted it . I'm aware it sounds fishy. My first thought was do i know the seller. It turns out it was glider14 from this forum, he say's he is getting away from cp's for a while.
    So I thought , if it wasn't going to be me , he would offer it to someone else, so i sent the money and he sent the plant in two days. along with a free n. 'sabre'
    So if I was taken it was by one of our own , I didn't realize there was some kind of auction issues here as well , till he mentioned it, wish he were still on here so he could defend where it came from.
    Any how. if anyone is hurt , or feels taken I'm sorry , but someone was going to end up with it, whatever it is.
    Maybe he came to me because he knew I had posted looking for a PDA around the first of the year, and knows I'm still very new to neps.
