    Thumbs down

    So there were some painters at the developement lately. They decided to throw their drop cloths right over my sars, which they could easily have moved. Broke a number of nice pitchers.

    But that's not the really bad part....They knocked my N. ventricosa, which was going to go to the NECPS show with me (was looking PHAT), right off the deck. They even had the audacity to just toss the thing under the deck and leave it there. 6 or the 8 nice pitchers were smashed, and had to be trimmed off. No show for this plant this year. So much for months of good growing.

    May I vent here also?

    I'm dog-sitting for my brother and his wife. They have two french bulldogs, one of them a puppy.

    darn things went for the plants out of the blue while I was watching some TV. I ran in, and found my N. burkei x villosa totally destroyed. Also badly damaged, and maybe goners are BOTH of my N. reinwardtianas. Minor damage to the N. maxima x veitchii. All of these were rooted cuttings on my lowest shelf, so they were small plants, but ARRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Months and months of growing gone in a flash.

    Dave,
    You should take up a suit against the company. I have worked for in construction a number of years and beleive me people win $$$ for workers destroying even just plants. I know of a case where a lady had prize winning roses that were totally destroyed by shingles thrown off the roof. She was able to prove the $$$ involved with the roses as well as prizes awarded etc... and she won a couple thousand for a single bush.

    Sorry to hear that man - I can sympathize!

    The painters at my condo showed up outta the blue a few weeks ago and ripped down my giant Aristolochia gigantea off the trellis so they could paint behind it... I came home to find many unopened giant flowers (finally!) laying all over the yard below my patio. If they woulda sent a notice that painters were coming I'd have made arrangements to be home and paint the railing behind the plant myself, carefully. At least they left all my slipper orchids alone which are worth much more in monetary value than the Aristo and I would've had a real fit if they'd destroyed those!
    I guess that's the hazard of not owning your own property and having plants outside. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    I feel for all of you, truly sorry.
    Dogs like neps for some reason. When I got back from the 2000 ICPS conference, I was potting up some plants I bought. I had a N. fusca I had bought from Ch'ien Lee, and I looked down after potting it, and there was an empty pot! My beagle had snatched it like it was a sandwich that I had within reach.

    Cheers,
