Drosera meristocaulis(mattb $70)

Not open for further replies.
Up for auction is a pot of D. meristocaulis - the South American pygmy sundew. I received these t/c plants in a trade last fall but quickly realized that I did not have the time to properly care for them and my subsequent neglect allowed the LFS to both dry out & later to completely grow over the pot. I assumed the plants were toast. However, as I was trying to reclaim some space a few months ago, I checked under the LFS in the pot before tossing in the trash & found living plants - buried. I chopped away the sphagnum and have attempted to keep it trimmed since. I have no idea how many plants are now in the pot. There are two that are somewhat larger (top 2 pics) and as I look more closely, I can find significantly more (2 examples in bottom 2 pics).

Here's a pic of the pot they came in (and, in which they currently reside)

... and pics of a few individual plants

- This plant is rarely available in the USA but I suggest interested bidders do their homework and understand the plant's requirements. This thread is probably a good place to start...
- Yes - the entire pot is up for auction
- Bidding starts @ $2.
- Buyer pays shipping - which is estimated to be <$10. If you win more than one of my auctions, I will combine shipping to reduce costs.
- USA only.
- For questions or suggestions, I can be reached @
- - - - -

- As May's weather can turn hot quickly, for the safety of the plant (& my personal sanity), please plan to pay quickly at the end of the auction.

Winner should contact the lister/donor within three days to make shipping arrangements. Payment for the ITEM WON will go directly to Sheila Stewart, Treasurer for NASC (see payment methods and address above); please do NOT send ITEM payment to the seller! But DO remit any shipping fees directly to the seller. Once Sheila has received payment for an item, she will notify the donor (and copy the bidder) that s/he can ship the item; the donor should have received shipping fees by this time. Donor has 14 days to ship the item once NASC has received payment.

PAYMENT FOR A WON ITEM: Payment can be made by personal check, money order, cashier's check or Paypal. Make your checks out to North American Sarracenia Conservancy; send your total payment amount to:

NASC Treasurer
ATTN: Sheila Stewart
PO Box 43
Wesson, MS 39191

Paypal to treasurer (at) nasarracenia (dot) org as "Goods, other". Please make sure you use the "note" function and title it "AUCTION" along with ALL other pertinent information listed below...so Sheila (catrus) will know what payments are auction related and for which items/seller.

When you send in your payment, you MUST include the following information:

1) Your real first and last name
2) Your TerraForums ID (if a member)
3) Phone number and email address *just in case* we need to contact you
4) a) full list of EACH Item you won and are paying for
b) Ending bid (price) of EACH item
c) The FORUM name or email of the donor (so they can be notified to ship!)

If you are MAILING a payment in, please use this handy PDF form. Print it out, fill it in with the above information and send with your payment: http://www.nasarracenia.org/wp-conte...-form-2012.pdf (Please note that this is an old form. Send your payment to Sheila Stewart at the address above.)

Any "mystery payments" (no identifiers) will be refused by NASC and returned to the sender.

SHIPPING FEES: The LISTER (DONOR) will choose who pays the shipping on their item. He/she may offer to pay shipping OR require the bidder to pay shipping costs; this information MUST be disclosed in the listing information so the bidder knows prior to bidding who will pay the costs. Shipping fees (as accurate as possible) and/or restrictions should be clearly posted in the listing (item topic); shipping costs can be estimated. Seller/donor should take all care possible to ensure their item is well packed and will arrive in good shape.

PAYMENT/SHIPPING POLICY: No item will be shipped until payment has been received. Each winner will have 30 days from the close of auction to remit payment to NASC and any shipping fees to the donor (seller). Items must be shipped to winners within 14 days of receipt of payment. If item payments are not received within the 30 day time allowance, the bid is voided and the next highest bidder will be offered the item at their highest bid. The same time allotments apply to each winner bidder if previous bids have been voided. Insurance will be at the request and expense of the buyer.

Please post here any updates to your auctions. Please post when payment is made, item shipped and item received.

Thank you
