I was very pleased to find a misplaced packet of Drosera regia seed I purchased from Silverhill Seeds about 4 years ago while sorting older supplies.
These are all the more special since they came from Silverhill Seeds.
A good number are germinating, hoping for a decent amount of variation...

Dear fellow nature lovers and carnivorous plant enthusiasts:
Hopefully most of us in this community understand that many of the plants we love to grow are becoming...
Also looking for this rare Australian Drosera. I heard there used to be European collections with it in the past but am unsure as of present; I've never seen this species in cultivation before.
Very keen to trade for it. Check out my growlist and we can definitely make a deal :)
Heya laddies and ladies an all,
I'm Carson from Portland. I've been growing CPs since I was 5 or so so that makes it sixteen years of growing I guess, damn I'm getting old hah
I'm a part time student at PSU going for an International Studies degree with a minor in Japanese...
I've recently harvested quite a few P. chilensis seeds. These are pretty darn fresh, the last batch I harvested 7 days ago, and the most recent batch I harvested about 2 days ago. In my experience, these are a very easy species to germinate, much like lusitanica. If you're interested in trading...
I've never known anyone in the US to grow 'Linda' and it's just as rare to see someone with a khasiana in their collection but it's worth a shot. Anyone with an extra cutting or plant, please shoot me a message and let's see what we can work out!
1. I have about a dozen or so cuttings of my Nepenthes "graciliflora" (the "smooth alata") available for trade. This is a very easy and vigorous species that can grow as a lowlander and highlander, although it seems to be pretty scarce in the trade right now. I have unrooted 2- and 4-node...

I am trading away my nepenthes hamata AW clone #3 ( about 2 inch diameter) for rare ( and I mean rare) cephalotus varieties. I am not interested in Hummer's Giant.
I am mainly looking for:
-Eden Black clone
-Triffid Albany Black clone
-Other clones ( I choose if I am...
I have (at least) 4 N. x 'rokko' plants from cuttings I've taken from my "mother" plant over the years. They are all well established, various sizes & ages, a few suffering from neglect but otherwise healthy & wanting to grow. N. 'rokko' produces nice large pitchers(4"-6+") similar to a larger...
Up for auction is 1 large seed grown D. 'Albino'! You don't see these very often, they are so very rare!! (yeah, right) This is likely you ONLY chance to get one! (well, and support the NASC at the same time at least) so bid generously to get your hands on it!
I will send it either potted...
Before bidding please read the entire auction.
Ok Up for bid is a mystery dew. I'm not really a dew expert so I'll tell you what I know about it. I believe this to be a Mexican variety. It's medium sized, and very dark in color. Almost a blood purplish red color.
In addition to your mystery...
Up for auction is one seed-grown N. cecilae.
It is roughly 4 inches in diameter and this species appears to grow rather quickly and is not too picky about temps. I have found that it can be grown in the intermediate to highland range. This species produces deep rich maroon and black lower...
A rare and unusual hybrid form of the traditional E. Tirucalli 'pencil cactus' that produces heavily pointed, bushy branches. I only know of one grower (aside from me) that even has this hybrid available. At maturity it grows into a tree and begins to form a bark-like skin on it's largest/oldest...
My whole area tends to be a sort of honey hole where exotic plants grow wildly all over the place. It used to be a massive grass farm eons ago. Several years ago I became aware of a large patch of Giant Japanese Iris (japonica) that was growing in a ditch around the corner from me. I only notice...
The actual plants for bid.
For me the adult plant looks like this.
This species is closely-related to Drosera arcturi and is from New Zealand. It is said to be easier to grow than it's better-known cousin and to get larger when mature. For more, and better, photos of this species look...
What is the availability of D. brevifolia in the hobby? I've looked for it, and haven't had much luck finding it. The only place I managed to find it was relatively expensive. Is this considered a rare species, or is it just not desired? I'm only asking out of sheer curiosity; I figured that...
