    Cuttings giveaway: Brugmansia "Suncrest vulsa". Restricted by climate/conditions I urgently need to cut back my Brugmansia, and I will not be able to use all the cuttings. So I'd like to offer some of the cuttings in a giveaway. There are several problems with this. One is that the plant is...

    Free Seeds (non CP)

    I have a bunch of extra sees that I won't get around to planting this spring. They are from last year, so not all of them will sprout. If you have extra space in your garden, please give the seeds a chance! All I need is a SASE to get the seeds to you. Please send a PM! :D *Carrot -...

    Variegated Monstera deliciosa contest/giveaway

    I should start out by warning that this contest will probably take a couple months to resolve itself. The plants are slow growing in my conditions. I bought a Monstera deliciosa albovariegata at a sale 3 or so years ago at a San Francisco Botanical Garden plant sale. It was a nice looking...

    Terrarium Stuff

    This post is a testament to my technological ignorance. Attaching a photo to a pm is beyond me, so I post these for jcal's perusal. Clockwise from upper left: first two pics are Masdevallia 'Fuschia Dawn Rolf', unidentified Tillandsia, Ornithophora radicans. Although potted in the pics I will...

    Passiflora edulis f. edulis Seed Giveaway. Unfazed by 24 F, Killed by Raccoons

    A friend in Palo Alto had a big, heavily fruiting P. edulis f. edulis (self-fertile, small-fruited, dark purple passionfruit). It survived the cold without significant damage in December of 2013, only to be killed by raccoons last year that dug the plant up, presumably in search of worms. My...

    Begonia luxurians seeds giveaway

    I have a Begonia luxurians plant which is about 12 feet tall and produces tons of seeds. So I have more seeds than I can easily deal with. I gave a huge number to the American Begonia Society Seed fund. These are mainly seeds that were harvested after that point. Here's the deal. Since...

    Is it Illegal to Send Nepenthes Seeds Across Borders?

    I've had multiple people message me on eBay asking if I can ship seeds to France, Brazil, etc... And I hate to tell them no, because it's probably very hard to find viable seeds there unless they know other hobbyists. However, I recall reading that it is illegal to ship Nepenthes seeds...

    Amorphophallus Konjac 1st time bloom questions

    Hi guys. I have an Amorphophallus Konjac bulb I’ve been growing for maybe the past 3 years and just noticed it is starting to bloom for the first time! But it seems really, really early….I normally have it starting to sprout just a tiny leaf tip around March or April and by the time the weather...

    S. x areolata: FREE for one winner...

    I really like dinosaurs. I mean REALLY like dinosaurs. I am sure some of you are the same. The first person to list an obscure dinosaur fact I don't know wins a nice, well-rooted S. x areolata division. If I know all of the posted facts by Sunday night at 9:00 PM Eastern I will have my wife...

    Non CP, (Pre) Giveaway: A pod arrived with seeds that looks like small brains...

    This is not a carnivorous plant. This is slightly premature in a couple ways. I just got some seeds and I'm struck how odd they look when a bit of the skin is peeled off. Notice also the odd gelatinous material associated with the seed, after soaking in water. Interestingly, I have heard the...

    Propagation of Passiflora foetida by cuttings and seeds

    Passiflora foetida has intricate sticky bracts around its buds, flowers, and fruits. It can definitely trap insects there, but whether it fits the standard definitions of carnivory is dubious. Some claim yes, but it seems that the consensus at the moment is that Passiflora foetida is not...

    Aristolochia macroura giveaway (a Nepenthes wannabe)

    I know a lot of people who grow Carnivorous Plants also grow Aristolochias. I'm always surprised that more don't. These I'll send for postage. I am also looking for trades, for Nepenthes plants, seedlings, cuttings (rooted, unrooted). See also my other post...

    My 100gpd RO membrane for your 75gpd or...

    Hello! I have purchased a 75gpd membrane to build a dual membrane/high efficiency system for my reef tank system setup. I thought I had a 75gpd somewhere already, but turns out I have a 50gpd, 24gpd, and 2 100 gpd systems. I have verified (by measuring water into the membranes and water out...

    For the cacti/plumeria fan

    The other day I saw a large cactus plant in a yard and stopped and talked with the owner. And got a couple of pieces. I do have a couple of this type, but do not usually seek out others as the tiny glochids are a pain to get out of your skin if you touch them by accident. This one was a...

    Have Chaetomorpha macroalgae for ?

    Was planning on cleaning my reef tank soon and just wondered if anyone else had a saltwater tank and wanted some cheatomorpha macroalgae for a refugium. I thought it might be fun to do a cheap/easy bubble envelope trade of some cheatomorpha for something else like seeds or gemmae that would also...
