    Looking any of the following: P. esseriana, P. ehlersiae, P. vulgaris and/or P. grandiflora for one P. gigantea or one P. agnata. I'd give up both for a vulgaris or a grandiflora. The gigantea is about 2 inches across and the agnata is flowering size.

    VFTs growing in Wisconsin?

    Some years ago I read a book that claimed Dionaea had been naturalized somewhere in WI. Personally, I find this a bit hard to believe, but I was wondering if anyone had any idea if this were true or not? And, on the off chance it is, would you care to share location? Does anyone know where the...

    D. regia from seed to maturity

    Does anyone know how long it takes a "typical" regia to go from seed to a mature flowering plant in its natural habitat? Is it usually significantly different when the plant is grown "under glass"? Also, I'm wondering if I can store regia pollen in the fridge and, if I can, how long will it last?

    Tebuconazole, anyone have any problems?

    Anybody use tebuconazole on seeds? The Sarr seeds I treated with this stuff during stratification didn't germinate very well at all. Wondering if my problem might have been the fungicide.

    Anybody grow these from seed before? I recently received some linearis seeds and was wondering if it is really necessary to stratify them in the fridge for 4 weeks, then in the freezer for 4 months, and then back in the fridge for another 4 weeks? I would like to have these guys ready to go by...
