Just got back from a 2 week holiday to Australia, I hadn't been back for almost 2 years.
I did a bit of CP'ing and saw plenty of climbing, tuberous and pygmy Drosera. In some places the tuberous and pygmies were so numerous it was impossible to avoid stepping on them, they were everywhere.
As my grandparents live in Albany I went down there too and wasted lots of time and bored the cr@p out of my wife and kids trudging through swampy heathland looking for Cephalotus but didn't see any. I did find a HUGE Dugite (poisonous snake) hiding in a blackboy though.
On the way back from Albany I planned to stop in and finally meet Phill Mann, owner of southern carnivores www.scarnivores.com. He has a large variety of Neps that are not available at ********** so I hope it is OK to put his site here - no disrespect intended to Phil and Jaie.
So I met Phill, great guy, and I decided to buy a few Neps from him - I only had 2 days of my holiday left and still had a bit of spending money so I chose 6 x raff giant, 4 x raff squat, 4 x lowland veitchii, 2 x raff "white", 3 x bicalclarata, 2 x philippinensis, 4 x truncata, 2 x bellii, 2 x mindanaoensis, 2 x ventricosa, 1 x lowland maxima, 1 x raff x clippeata, 2 x Drosera fulva and 2 x D falconerii.
I picked it all out, took a deep breath and said "what do I owe you Phill?" and he GAVE them all to me!!
I spent today (first day back) potting it all and gloating over my massively increased collection.
Just wanted to share my story and put in a good word for Phill.
(corrected the web site address here as it is a bit poor trying to help Phill out and posting the wrong address!)
Cheers (and thanks pthiel)
