    Be leary of a guy known as [REDACTED]


    N. burbidgeae, Notice the trend of smaller leaves


    N. campanulata, Notice the trand of smaller leaves


    N. vent x hamata Notice the one off to the side? That was the largest new growth point that broke off. Main stem has long been dead.

    I will get pictures of the other two soon. This guy claims to have had a bad winter in TN of all places. Bad winter or not it seems he still doesn't know how to take care of nepenthes. Claims to have been growing for ten years.

    Has the nerve to ask me to send them back. It would just kill them. I jumped on these in a hurry admitedly, but this info wasn't disclosed.

    This guy charged you money for these??!! Unconscionable, to say the least. Pursue getting your money back, whatever it takes.

    Absolutely unacceptable... I'm sorry this happened to you Josh, what an utter load of BS. PayPal dispute it and get your money back. Those poor plants....

    Thanks for the warning. It's good to know this kind of thing to know who to avoid. Just as important as knowing who's good.

    Ah.. yikes! If you cant get your money back, I think its safe to say that the campy and burb atleast look like they might live...Not certain about the vent X hamata though...


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Yowsers! Thanks for the warning... I hope at least some of them pull through.

    Those are not items worthy of sale, unless condition was given ahead of time.
    Don't feel sorry for the plants...
    get a refund!
    Sad situation.
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
