    Ahhhh...does a body good to read things like this. This is how it should be between people--being kind to one another. You never know when you do a good deed when it will be returned to you, whether by the same person or someone else.

    You just can't beat good friends who care.

    And congrats on that rajah...I hope it grows well for you.

    Thanks a bunch Ozzy!

    The first comments out of my mouth were on the lines of "Who sent me a Nepenthes rajah"? But on a bit more color in the wording.

    I recognized the plant right off. I just couldn't believe it.

    I spent a few hours trying to verify that it was indeed what I thought it was and also to find out who sent it. As Ozzy said, he tossed out a few hints. They all just flew right over me.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    You got it Spec, I didn't think you'd get that.

    Doug, you might not get a hug but, I'd be sure to give you something in return, maybe a boot to the.....

    I knew this was the opportunity to say thanks to Nick. So I ordered the plant and had it shipped to Nick with no plant ID, return address, nothing.
    This was a ton of fun to watch. You guys seem to know how to have a good time. I wish I could have met you both in person when you were here! Maybe next time.

    I have had a few people PM me to ask what I have for sale here at Frederik Meijer Gardens, so I wanted to add a quick note to this whole story.

    The plant that Oz bought was one that Amori had here from his own collection. Oz got it from Amori not me. I just had the pleasure of sending it off in an unmarked container..

    I don't really sell plants, only trade them...

    Great story guys, makes me feel good everytime I read through these posts...
