    Tim,

    How would this process(reserving plants) work? Would there have to be 30 people who want a certain plant


    Many of the 'rare' plants(nepenthes) are available in the U.S.,and can just be bought for a reasonable price at a reputable cp nursury, but rarer plants from other genera(Drosera, Pinguicula, Utricularia, Genlisea etc.) are much harder to acquire. So far, I have never seen plants like U.alpina, reniformis, humboldtii, P.crassifolia, heterophylla, gypsicola, Droserae from S.America and lots more cps, offered for sale in the U.S. In places like the U.K., these plants are very often seen in collections and offered commercially.

    I think Phil is doing a great job now.

When you purchase a stock plant, possibly add a donation to the purchase, it could be a option added to the check out process.

    You are so funny
    no one had ask Phil if he is willing to take it on himself
    he for sure doing wonderful job but to throw extra work
    on him without asking him or don't you think as a firm
    a work has to bring some profit? no one can make a work for free.
    I can also add that all of you can see what had happened at the last few mounts
    Nearly all the plants so called RARE ones had now Reduced price did I need to give the example N. campanulata from 120$ to 20$ N. hamata from 100$ to 25$ and so on.
    As funny as this topic goes people already start to write down which plants they like
    come on start to think be4 you post a nsg.

    Arie, who said that? Nobody was saying Phil had to do anything, or that he wasn't already doing a good job. In fact, I said just the opposite.

    People who write books do it all the time. And you should read more carefully, as I specifically said that there should be a profit motive.

    Have you ask Phil before you put this topic?
    How can you do so ? first ask him if he want it at all.
    people who write books do so as they do write and want to sell.
    you are not going to put an add at the newspaper say let collect money and we offer it to the writer and ask him to write a book and say here is a deposit for it.
    The right way is first to go to the man and ask him if he willing to do the work for you and others.
