Wow, I hope I,ll not forget anyone... I think some are not on the forums, but I,ll list only canadians that I think that are still into the hobby
Syble Cchang Mabudon purpman/Niagara carnivores (exotics?) Lloyd Gordon Matt Pate Frank Breil Dan Sierzega Chris Fieger Curlinguy Treefrog Dom1234 seedling David Wong/Flytrap Cark Mazur/purpman and there is plenty of others not on the forums...
I've ordered from Rowlands twice in England and had very poor germination and no plants that lived more than a few weeks. This could be my poor technique plus maybe seeds that are too hard to germinate. Otherwise I've never really had a bad experience. At the worst some people are just busy, don't check their email or forget to finish the transaction without reminding. Generally I've had great experience with everyone I've dealt with (almost all Canadian) and have managed to get almost all the plants I want by trading or buying at very reasonable prices. CP'ers as a group tend to be eccentric (in a good way) but honest and reliable.
Lloyd: I did, once for gemmae and once for plants. Very nice plants, on the small side but several 'portions' so you can easily have numerous back-ups or share/trade immediatly on delivery for others to increase mutually your collection and avoid to put eggs in the same basket. Plus, they always add a few plants as a gift.
I would be in for sure for a group order

Is anybody up for organizing a group order from BestCarnivorousPlants? I've never bought plants from abroad so I don't have any experience. Tom, was there much trouble or work involved ordering plants from them?

Hi Lloyd and Tom,
BestCarnivorous are cool guys, and their plant quality has always satisfied me (droseras, neps, hellies AFAIAC). Usually, they send you 4 seedlings for the price of 3 (but don't you believe I have shares in their company
Enjoy ! OL
