Peter Paul's..... Yet again

Chris Creel mentioned another thing that I have also encountered: plant id
from Peter Paul's. I can't tell you how many stories I have heard about
their sending incorrectly named plants. But then again, if he doesn't grow
the plants in the first place, how is he supposed to know what they are?

I forgot to mention one other thing. He also offered me .50 to .75 cents
for each drosera/ping (from other countries) that I could send him. I was
truly offended. Needless to say, I did not take him up on this offer either.

He told me flat out that he is only interested in this for the money. I
think it is a real shame. I grow these plants because I really find them
fascinating. I still get excited watching a VFT close around an insect!
Pardon me for venting here, I just think everyone should know.

Take care & keep on growing,
