He goes above and beyond, providing plants for giveaways, tips, donations, trades, etc. I can say without a doubt that CC couldn't care less about providing that kind of image. Personally, I've acquired smaller plants for more money in general. A half dessicated pinguicula I waited a month to receive. Matt gave an inaccessible plant to me (Alabamensis) because he had a division and pulled a flytrap from his mother pot because I had been wanting one forever. That's the difference. Idk, I consider Matt a friend so having this kinda post bothered me. If it was a Nepenthes or something it'd be whatever, but using his forum to promote a competitor's flytraps got to me.
As far as I know, it's been allowed because they carry different stock. But I do agree with fts. They have an incredible stock and product. Their plants are always excellent. And you know what size you are going to get when you order. He knows when their dormant and tells you so you don't worry about size. He's very thorough in his instructions. I have never had a bad plant, ever. And the way they pot is perfect. I hate moss you get from Cc. But their drosera are decent, minus the moss. I love that you get ultis. I may see if the seed bank has them for next month. I ordered a people ambush and it was supposed to be an adult or mature,I can't remember. But the one I got was tiny, so small. They swear it was dormant, but it wasn't the season. And that moss has spread all over. I have to repot everything. I'm going to wash the plants and see if it will help to stop the spread of that cancerous to plants, plant. It killed all the ultis I had in another pot.
