Default Sarracenia selling at Sunway Pyramid

Hi everyone, today spotted some Saracenia selling at one of the inner concourse area of Sunway Pyramid, near the Marrakesh area. The sign said Sarracenia Farnhamii. Large sized plants. Place was selling orchids and plants for CNY but there was a small section of Sarracenias.

Hi,

Welcome to PP.

It is great that more place are selling CP. Sad thing is, most of time, they will end up to heaven. Because most of selling giving wrong information!!!!

Bad experience leading consumer have misunderstanding to CP... --> cannot grow at Lowland!!!

hi casey...

"Bad experience leading consumer have misunderstanding to CP... --> cannot grow at Lowland!!!"

don't quite understand your last phrase...you meant certain Carnivorous Plants cannot be grown in Lowland condition or S. x Farnhamii cannot be grown in Lowland condition?

I think what he meant was because of misinformation by the seller, people get the impression that CPs cannnot grow in our hot, tropical lowland conditions....

Sorry for poor english... I means, most of nursery tell buyer that Sarracenia are from cameroon Highland, then can grow at indoor, need shaded environment. End up, buyer keep it as told and death. Then, buyer will think that Sarracenia cannot grow at Lowland

My aunty and relative are 1 of them (buyer)...

Yes since caseyhoo clarified that, its true! The nice helper at Sunway told me not to have direct sun and keep it in partial shade... But good thing i read the forum before that and i thought i better check once more to see if her facts were really correct. But I think she was also misinformed cos she was just repeating whatever the boss told her...

Here in Malaysia, many nurseries start selling VFTs, neps and sarras ady. Go to sungai buloh and roughly about 1 in every 5 major planting nursery has sarracenias being sold (in my observation)! The CP poison is expanding!
