Keep in mind that this is the same person who belittled our precious use of
CO2.  This was three years ago when I payed a visit so I don't know if he's
changed any.  His plants are still doing well by me, I hasten to add!
Opinions!  I thought I'd never get out of his basement alive, much less
with any plants.  I think I spent two hours just trying to get the
conversation back to my purchase.
