    Looking for Helis, Sarrs and VFTs

    I'm ready to get back into CPs again after a break of a few years while I made a major move. Looking for Sarrs - to be grown in pots in zone 5B and moved into shelter in the winter. VFTs to be grown indoors and some Heliamphora. Mailed to Southern Ontario. I'm self-isolating for the next few...

    2'' pots in bulk.
