Don't know who this is but please don't confuse this site with www.carnivora.nl, only 1 letter and the extention off but a totally different site, that of the Dutch CPS.

Just a heads up as we are often also swamped by mail for people who don't know the difference between Carnivora and Carniflora :whistling:

Some things caught my attention about this site.
I think this is CZplants
Their pic of Trichterfalle is the same plant and background as on CZplants website but a different angle. So they are either the same company or share the same location and plants.
Their picture of VFT 'All Red' is the same picture as CZPlants but is a higher resolution image (larger size, more detail). They must have access to CZplant's original image to do this?
There may be more similarities I only looked at the VFTs

edit
Sorry same picture but not higher resolution. I was only looking at the thumbnail

According to Google translate 'Dawna BohemicaPlantae' translates to 'Former BohemicaPlantae' and Bohemica Plantea
homepage has David Svarc's name on it. Domain lookup tools result in a similar registrant email address's for both domains.

Same question, I'm quite interested in the answer, as they seem to have some really nice species, but, as far as I know, I have never seen any advertising.

Hi…

This was the worst part of your fine work. That person should also think about it as you were working for the plant. And you are saying that that were quite new species you have ever seen then it may also happen they doesn't suit you climate.

sabulba, are you using an online translator, as some of your posts are difficult to make sense of?

Not only that they always seem to be completely unrelated to whats being discussed.

But I enjoy reading them anyway. Reminds me of Monty Python ;)

Argh I'm sorry guys, I've just seen this. I wish you'd sent me a PM and reminded me of this thread.

Well I've shopped about ten times from that website by now if not even more. First of all, yes it's the real deal, he really has every species he has listed. Prices for some are amazing (quelchii for 10 euros...etc). I'll be honest and say I'm usually not happy with the nepenthes I've ordered from there, they are not hardy at all. But for those of you who have advanced terrariums or greenhouses, they should pose no problems.
Everything else was great for me. Shipping cost is the lowest I've seen so far, they ship fast and they always put in a few extra plants.
