Order received.
Your order number is 0242.
I'll PM you shortly with a mailing address for your SASE.
Thank you for your order.

For Sarracenia or Dionaea seeds, I strongly suggest you use a 70 cent non-machinable stamp on your return envelope. (The inside one) For Drosera, Pinguicula, and Utricularia seeds, the extra postage is not necessary.
If you can't find a non-machinable stamp, I suggest a forever stamp plus a 15 cent stamp or two regular forever stamps on your return envelope.
The USPS machinery loves to crush those seeds. 

Reminder to all:
Please remember return address on all envelopes.
Please remember to write your Forum username and order number somewhere on the envelope or in a note.
I don't have access to a cross reference of real-world names linked to usernames.
Remembering these things helps me fill orders quicker.
Thank you.

Happy growing,
Dean

Yes, I did mail it. I can mail another one and if it shows up you can just hang on to it for next month?

Or stolen. Hella miffed, I was about to send my Flava Carrabelle to @flavaman on instagram and some porch pirate just took the box. My tip for all CP growers is to write PLANTS on the side of the box, or to put it out /give to your mailman as he comes up the stairs. I don't think porch pirates are very into plants, so plant stickers should likely deter them.

EDIT, yes pirates will steal your envelopes too. Stay vigilant. It's COVID season, Holiday season, and dark early nights season. AKA criminal's paradise.

I just needed a little patience. It arrived today, but looks like it had been run through multiple machines. It's folded over, multiple markings, front and back. But it's here.

SASE received.
Order is fulfilled.
Return envelope going out in tomorrow's mail.

Happy growing,
Dean

For the first time in the nearly 10 years we've been operating here in Ashland, Oregon, we had some of our boxes stolen off our mailbox area at the end of November. I'm guessing that all of the awesome plants that were in the boxes are dead now :( :x :evil:

I mean... Thieves have more time... The video shows the guy going door to door picking small parcels. And COVID has made people desperate. And it{s holiday season meaning thieves want to steal your gifts. So I suggest handing the boxes off to your courier. And reminding you that this happened at lunch hour, so it{s not a darkness thing anyways.

Yep, we aren't leaving any boxes at our mailbox any more. Our incident also happened around lunch time so, as you say, it's not always a darkness thing. People are getting more brazen with their thievery!

I'm sorry that happened to you guys. Could put up a fake (or real) camera outside your door with a note like "Smile! You're on the cloud" I imagine it's going to be particularly bad this year.

We had that here too. It was a bunch of teenagers. They were taking packages off the porches. I just don't trust anyone. I make sure my packages come right in. I thought about making a glitter bomb and leaving it outside lol.
