    Sorry, but I'd be pissed if that N. diatas showed up in my mail box and I'd try to get my money back or a replacement asap. FYI - another vendor currently has 4" plants for $18, and another one has the "Meadow form" $35 for 3". I'm not familiar with the species, so I don't know how they differ to warrant such a price range.

    I saw on another forum where you got this from - it seems nobody has a positive story after dealing with these people and I'll certainly never order from them. The raff seems ok (just ok) for $7, but that diatas is unacceptable.

    Oy, I purchased diatas from them too. They'll be arriving Thursday, and I'll post pictures then.

    If mine somehow lives, and yours doesn't, I'll send cuttings as soon as I can take them. I hate being ripped off, and I hate seeing others get ripped off.

    Sad indeed

    Regarding the two you see from other vendors... there is no difference. They are the same plants from BE
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Same here fotr. if mine lives and yours doesnt i'll send you a cutting when I can.

    Just contacted them about the plant. Hopefully, something gets worked out but I dont have my hopes up.

    I'm kind of crushed about this too. I just recently started collecting nepenthes again and this was the plant I was looking forward to the most. Guess i'll have to try another vendor.

    That's exactly what I suspected. Thanks, Tony.

    Guess I should add, I didn't specifically look at the other vendors.. BUT N. diatas is only available from a few suppliers. BE, MT and AW. 95% of the plants on the market are BE plants. Most vendors will specify where they got their plants too. BE only has one N. diatas for a number of years now. WAY back when.. they did have 2 a forest and a meadow form. The mix of clones they have now are the meadow plants. (which are nicer imo)
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
