(U.S) Another Wistuba group order

by BrunoL » Sun Jul 05, 2015 8:49 pm

Hey guys,
After the success of the previous group order, led by Charlie, I have decided to make another order with Wistuba and I was wondering if anybody who didn't get the chance to join the previous order would like to join this one. The benefits of joining such an order include reduced shipping costs, possible 7-10% discount on entire order and reduced currency conversion costs. I plan to get the order carried throughout summer break or throughout winter break depending on plant availability and the will of the people who join it. ;)

Thanks,
Bruno

Indeed, selection is limited to some extent. However, we have all of summer break to order. Andreas will most likely update Wisuba when he returns from his trip. Plus, we have the ability to make order additions without extra charge.

I'd be interested in jumping in on this. I missed out the group order for BCP, and I'm looking for some nice helis.

A group order is when many people purchase several plants in a single order, instead of ordering separately. The point of doing a group order is to cut down the overall shipping cost which is $55 for Wistuba, a nepenthes nursery in Germany. The leader of the group order (me) recieves a list of the plants everybody wants, makes a total sum for each individual (includes prices for: plants, shipping/conversion fees which is divided among us), recieves payment from every individual and makes the order. Then, when the order arrives, the leader ships the plants to every person who ordered.

I may get in if it lags into next month. I'm sure I can find a couple things I can't live without

I am interested in joining in on this group purchase. I would like to buy a nepenthes Hamata and it seems Wistuba has the best prices available. The shipping is a big turn off...so this group order seems excellent! Please keep me updated and PM me when you are ready to make the order and such. Thank you

Because Wistuba might update the website with some more species, will we wait until after the summer break to order?

We can order during and after summer break. Start by making a list of the plants you desire. When the time comes (sometime in mid-July, early August), send me the list and I will order the plants that are available for purchase. Then, you can wait until Wistuba updates and I'll order the plants that were previously unavailable in an order addition, which thankfully is free of charge.
