Yeah, but i'm not about to make a year-round snow melt habitat for them... C. montanum occurs along streams that are cold year round from snow melt right??? Or was that a different one???

Since your lab burned down, you have too much time on your hands. You're getting me into trouble. Get your clean room up so you stay off the internet

I ended up ordering some.

Leo, it doesn't take me to get you in trouble. You do a fine job of that on your own. :rollhappy:

There are some interesting ones on that list! Good luck with montanum - that is a tough one. Arietinum and kentuckiense grow very well for most folks.

I am not happy with Woodside Gardens. They claim they shipped, and the tracking number does show they shipped, but the plants have not shown after 17 days of Postal complaints. Now the cheapskates charged my credit card for the shipment, and refuse to issue a credit as the plants have not shown. I will never do business with Woodside again, and council the rest of you to beware. If there is a problem with your shipment - you won't be given credit. I am going to resort to a stop payment through the credit card company because they are not co-operating.
- So I sit here, with no Cyp kentuckiense and out $145 for the plants & shipping. ~ Simply Marvelous ~ I hate having to resort to these measure, in 35 years in the hobby this is only the 4th time I have been burned on a purchase or sale.

Hmmmm, they have a deal on eBay but you don't get the plants until October. They're located in upstate NY. Maybe you can contact one of our members near them and they can call about a pass through and maybe get your plants?

The latest update on my missing Cyps. They turned up. Almost 3 weeks after they were mailed the Post Office finally delivered them. The seedlings had been growing in the bags they were shipped in. The tips of the new roots were already beginning to die back. But I potted them up - we will see how they do.

Woodside has had no further contact. But at least now I have my plants, so they did ship when they said they did. They did not ship to the ship to the correct address, so the plants floated in limbo. They have not made any further offer to adjust or replace if these do not survive.

Oh well. - Leo
