I can't applaud optique enough. I paid him for my first Sarracenia, and he gave me two plants I didn't have for free, plus live moss! He shipped the plants almost instantly, sent me the tracking number as soon as he had one, and packed everything soundly. I normally don't make these posts, but this was a five-star experience :)

I have to agree. The plants were excellent quality and the packaging was awesome. Optique did an amazing job on protecting the plants from any USPS shipment damage!
Also threw in a thank you bonus. Surprises like that really make a difference when you open up your package. I look forward to our next transactions. Thank you !

I just realized that I never left feedback for my transaction with @optique, a tremendous oversight on my part. I bought a Florida Giant and Filiformis var floridana, and both plants arrived healthy and dewy. Optique also included a bunch of live sphagnum moss as a bonus. So far this is my favorite moss to grow, because it has the longest and thickest fibers.

Also, I learned from @optique that any colored pot or 1020 tray can be spraypainted white using Rustoleum spray paint -- a trick that totally changed my life. Prior to this, I was scarfing down 4-pound tubs of whipped cream to get white pots for my sarrs. Now I just buy a 1 gallon nursery pot and spray it white.
