Hi all. Recently a private seller had a list of sarracenia up for sale. On that list were 3 Leah Wilkerson. I asked if they could hold one for me, since i had to work the money from my mom. Last night, she bought it for me. Only costed 35.00 and shipping. I can't wait for it to get here.

A few weeks ago, my dad was on his way to a loss (He works at a insurance company) and he stopped by california carnivores. While there, he was able to pick out a adrian slack and it had 2 plants in it instead of one. He said i can have the smaller one when he repots it this winter. the on i will get is making leaves almost 6 inches tall.

Great bloke Adrian Slack.
Got me first interested in CPs years back (but i didnt grow back then with much success) after reading his book "Carnivorous Plants"
He ran a nursery over here called Marston Exotics.

Adrian slack was a amazing man. I am happy that his legacy lives on though his book and some of his plants.

Just a little update, my dad ended up buying me a 2 growth point AS from CC for Christmas. It is pushing up a new leaf. My LW seems to be growing a flower, but i will cut it as soon as it comes out of the rhizome to have it put it's energy into leaves and roots.
