I had done a larger trade with madrone at the beginning the season that was in the works for a few months. Wanted to wait until the weather warmed up in her area. When the time came, not only did she provide stellar plants, but she actually "upgraded" a few of the trades with some better options that she found in the time since we agreed. I thought that was awesome because I ended up with larger plants than expected. She also did her best to try to get me the plants that I was looking for (began propagating them for me which was another factor in wait time) so I got some really interesting pinguicula. To top it off, she threw in a couple of extras.

Madrone sends high quality plants and wastes no time in getting things together and sending them out. Also takes a lot of pride in the quality, wanting to make sure it's something she's satisfied with sending out herself which is nice and sometimes lacking in trades. I definitely plan to trade with her again as the season ramps up and different options become available. Really looking forward to the U. Quelchii growing. Thanks a lot!

Agreed, Madrone. This is a great CP community! I've been a grower (hobbyist) for some 30+ years, but I've still got a lot to learn and get lots of info from the great folks here!
