    Don't waste your time on "natural remedies" when dealing with Thrips and Mites - these are stubborn pests that require serious measures to eliminate. Imidacloprid is very effective on Thrips, but I...

    Sounds like he/she was a bit too young to be dealing with adults on a public forum, so its probably in the kid's best interest to take a step back till he/she is a bit less green.

    No, you weren’t.

    No. I am not going to waste my time (and yours) by sorting and packing up dozens of worthless hybrid seedlings to send you. I'm saving you from yourself.

    This sounds like a manufactured drama to me. Proof or it didn't happen.

    I've raised enough 'Adrian Slack' seedlings to know that its not a great breeder, but if you grow enough seedlings, you will find one or two that are worth keeping.

    No, sorry. This is a 5 year old seedling and is nowhere near big enough to divide yet. In fact, I am not in the habit of dividing plants until they are multi-lead specimen size, so it could be many...

    Jeremiah is a different league of grower and his trustworthiness is beyond scrutiny. This thread is about eBay seed sellers. I think it would be best to segregate discussion of plants sourced from...

    Exactly. What really annoys me is that people give these sellers great reviews, when in fact all they are giving feedback for is the SERVICE, not the PRODUCT. I'm sure many buyers wouldn't be in such...

    Is yours the plant from Jeremiah that sold for $156 a few days ago?

    “It is probably a good thing in a different way if we get bogus seeds.”

    I fail to see how funding an intentionally fraudulent seller is in any way “a good thing”. Rewarding a dishonest merchant...

    "At this rate, my grandchildren will see the first adult pitchers"

    Yes, that's about right. Seriously. It was the slowest grower I had: glacial.

    I saw a listing for "Nepenthes Compacta" on fleabay from a seller in Austraila named "lsf_bootz", and the plant they are selling is just plain old N. Ventrata. There is no such thing as "Nepenthes...

    This merchant has been discussed before: he routinely steals photos from other web sites, blogs and CP Photofinder to support his listings.

    Bag the plant (pot and all) in a ziploc bag (or equivalent) and place it in a bright place where it will NOT get direct sunlight. Your plant is on the brink and needs ICU time.
