CP supplier Directory

Recommended Posts

Have you ever wished that there was a kind of “yellow pages” for CP suppliers while you were looking for something in particular, a certain genus eluding you and you wish you had an easy way of telling who stocks it? Well, look no further, I’ve decided that I’d dedicate a little of my time to putting together and maintaining such a list. It is not an exhaustive list of every single supplier but if I have missed a major player in the field that you feel should be included don’t hesitate to message me, though please remember, this is really supposed to be for small businesses that sell our favourite plants, not individual, private sellers. Also, if you spot errors or omissions in an entry, again, message me and I’ll do my best to correct them. You may have noticed that all the ratings sections are empty, this is because I want to get your ratings for them all. If you could all message me, either by PM or email on [email protected] with your experiences and perhaps a rating out of 5 for a supplier you’ve had dealings with I’d be most obliged. (All details were correct at time of writing, I’ll update them as necessary every few weeks or so.).

Anyway, without further ado, allow me to introduce to you …

I didn't know they sold live sphagnum. It's not on the English version of their website.

Me neither. It's here: http://carnisana.pl/?p=productsList&sWord=sphagnum

Doesn't really fall into any of the categories on the left side.

@OP:

I don't think Nigel sells Drosophyllum seeds. They're priced but no button to add them to the basket is included.
