When I grow up I want to have more plants than MikeB. Color me jealous. You have an AWESOME collection and I find myself going through your list often as it seems I see something different every time. Thanks for sharing.

As my wallet can attest, I do far too much prowling around on eBay. When I see something that I really like, and the price is low, it's very hard to say "no".

If you want to see Sarracenia envy, check out Mike Wang's massive collection. If only I could win the lottery, quit my job, and buy a few acres of land....

Funny, I have been having the same issue lately. I ha won a couple of auctions on eBay tat were from the same seller. So, rather than pay more for shipping I will scout out any "Buy It Now" deals from same seller and buy enough to make it worth paying the shipping charges. My last 2 that I did I ended up with 8 Sars of which I traded off 4 of them. Second time I ended up with 6 more Sars and a couple of Drosera. I will take a look at Mike Wang's list but then I will most likely be even more jealous.

So I finally got a chance to take a look at Mike Wang's site. You are right, he has quite the collection there. Do you purchase from him often? Your link to the sale at Sarracenia Northwest has me eyeballing several more but Mike Wang appears to have a little of everything. My next major purchase is going to be one of the red or purple Cobra Lily. I currently have a green one and would love to have a red one at Christmas time. I am going to put it in with the green one I currently have and decorate for the season (as long as I can convince my budget I really need it).

I discovered Mike Wang's site back in 2014 and purchased "The Beast" from him:

This is still my favorite plant. Since then, I've purchased multiple plants from Mike and never been disappointed with anything I received.

That is a beautiful plant. So 9 years old or so? I am hopeful I will be around another 9 years to see how my plants are!!! I can't seem to get my son to garner up any interest in them and I am not sure what will come of my plants once I am gone. I guess maybe I will try to find a local group to hand them off to.

Believe it or not, it's that gorgeous rubricorpora you got from me.

I have 2 atropurpurea's now, both from a massive plant with 10 crowns. It developed rhizome rot during the winter, and these were the only survivors. :( I keep looking at the 'Waccamaw' cultivars for sale, but I can't bring myself to shell out $200-300 for one.

That may be it, but if I'm going to drop that amount of money on a plant, I'm going to get it from Mike Wang or someone with a sterling reputation.

I totally agree. These seeds just arrived today. https://www.ebay.com/itm/115965602670
I purchased based on recommendation from MikeB. It is my understanding that this guys seeds are known worldwide. I guess I will find out. It seems he only sells seeds. I found this mix to have more of what I was looking for. Without knowing anything about Waccamaw, it appears there are a few different species in this mix. :D :D
