This guy claims to have the largest collection of FLAVA in the WORLD. He is north of Seattle but does not allow visitors to his greenhouses. He "Says" he has plans to in the future. If I had that kind of collection I would want it open to the public, but that's just me. Scroll down to Description. Nice looking plants though.

I've heard of him, and heard good things about him, but never purchased from him.
As to not allowing visitors, that's not surprising, and I wouldn't be surprised if he never allowed them. There have been many stories about growers allowing people to come look, only to get robbed a few days later. Mostly losing a lot of plants worth a few bucks each. But it adds up. There was one guy who was hit, and the thieves bypassed many uncommon plants to hit his rare, high dollar Neps. A few plants were valued in the low to mid four figures. To my knowledge, none of those plants have ever resurfaced.

dj_almightydolla is Steve Galic. He's on the board of directors for the North American Sarracenia Conservancy (Administrator of Plant Materials). I've bid on some of his eBay auctions, but the prices always go too high for my wallet.
