I won a giveaway of Sarracenia seedlings from elaineo. The Sarracenia were packed very securely and it was obvious that she took great care of her plants. Sometimes you can tell a lot about a person just by the way their plants come to you. You can see the attention they give, and how they protect their "baby" as it leaves them for the new owner. I would gladly trade or make a purchase with elaineo again. Thank you

I recently received my package from Elaineo for a trade. I haven't sent mine out because of USPS's stupid "ship date" policy. I left the my end of the package out on my doorstep and USPS didn't even pick it up. It's already past the ship date so I'm refunding the label. Since I haven't sent my end out yet, I'm giving Elaineo some bonus plants because of the delay. Just don't tell! The plants I received were better then ANY nursery I've ever bought from. There even was a bonus plant in the package! I'll post some pics. I feel as though I got the way better end of the trade. Thanks Elaineo! I'll PM you the new shipping label.

Elaineo was offering a starter box of sorts with various seedlings I'm not sure the shipping cost was enough to cover the shipping let alone the plants.

The box arrived crushed thanks to the post offices "gentle" handling of packages but much to my surprise the plants were very well packed and survived the trip. After potting them all up and looking at them I came to the realization that I don't think she sent me a single seedling. She sent me fully grown plants that are ready to flower.

Not that I'm mad about it but talk about misadvertisement! Thank you thank you! I can never recommend her enough!

Recently did a trade with elaineo and I am very happy with the trade! I traded Dionaea M. 'Wally' plus some bonuses for a 'Red Dragon'. Turns out instead of one 'Red Dragon', there is three!! These plants are bigger than any nursery flytrap! Would definitely trade again.

I won some seedlings from ElaineO in the holiday extravaganza. I always love her packaging.

I was expecting a few seedlings, maybe 5. I got over a dozen and one drop dead gorgeous one.

Thanks. That's a 40 year old Parks light rack on the left and some Chrismas gifts on the table. The neps are hanging out under a couple of shop lights. Oh, and a sled of peat/perlite drying after being rinsed.

I didn't know you could use LED shop lights. How much did they cost? What is the color temperature, luminosity, and length?
