    Angry More snazzy new plants!

    I suppose I should start with the "good news" (we'll get to that quote shortly)

    I wanted a pair of seed grown Nepenthes boschiana hopefully a male and female, well this little guy (or gal) looks pretty nice:






    Then there's N. boschiana #2 Ick, maybe? I guess the curl on the emerging leaf is the same but damn...


    Now onto the really good news. I got a note that said "Good News, we were out of the smaller size plant you ordered so we have sent you much larger "parent plants" that we have removed the growing tips from. These plants should be ready to put out awesome new growth."

    Well, aren't I the lucky duck!?

    My N. truncata qoh x kos is doing what your boschiana #2 is doing. :c

    Haha wow, "Here, have these chopped up plants that might not grow for some time, but when they do it will be awesome we think."
    Gotta love THAT customer service.

    Yikes! I would be definitely calling those people up and be having a little talk with them! They sure don't look like the plants they advertise!

    Dannnnnnnnng...why to you keep getting the crap-covered end of the stick?
    That's terrible.
    And I'd like to know the logic of removing the growth tips >.>

    "ok, thx.. To pay you here are one dollar bills that i've removed the ones offa. Pleasure doing business ! "

    Gorgeous first bosch, and the second plant is what my MT faizaliana came in looking as.. I moved it to semi-shade, neemed thoroughly, then misted daily for ~2 months or however long ive had it now. It recovered, but im certainly thinking twice before orderin from there again.

    Funny how one word would have put the thing into perspective. Probably should have read...

    "Good News, we were out of the smaller size plant you ordered so we have sent you much larger "parent plants pieces."

    Sorry about your luck. Were they rooted at least?
