The International Pollen Agency for Nepenthes a product of the GFP opened her doors.

Please visit under International Pollen Agency for Nepenthes and register.

The aim of the International Agency is to provide private persons, companies and institutions with the possibility to find the right partner plant for their flowering Nepenthes. The purpose is to facilitate the exchange of pollen of different Nepenthes species and hybrids; on the one hand, to protect the plants in their natural habitat and, on the other hand, to make it easier for both hobbyists and professional growers to obtain seeds for their collections and for propagation.

Hi,

The Idea came from Günter Seiter (i think he was it) last year at our general meeting of the GFP (Geselsschaft für fleischfressende Pflanzen - the german carnivorous plants society). It was clear, that such a project does only make sense internationaly. I hope it will be accepted by many!! So, feel free to use it.

regards,
Christian

So it is still legal to ship Nep seeds & pollen (Cites App II) and pollen internationally without paperwork? Excluding rajah/khasiana (Cites App I).
Just want to make very sure, since I heard that it was supposed to be changed.

Seeds of CITES II plants are exempt from CITES, although some countries have phytosanitary requirements for all plant parts including seeds.

Anyone able to help.

I tried adding an entry today but it did not seem to want to go through.

I sent and email to Admin to ask if there was a problem and got this response from Gunter:

As I don't speak the language I have no idea what he said.

Hey Aaron,
His language was a little unclear (odd for a native German) but he said:
[They] are attainable starting from 28.09.04 again in the office. Yours sincerely Guenter Seiter Knorr brakes SFS Vie r/tkp

The [] is a word I added. It literally translates to what I said pre brackets, so I don't know what he means are attainable...

I assume that means entries...

Sorry guys for the confusion about my mail.

My admin mail adress is splitted to my home mail adress and to my companies mail adress. And when I leave the company for some days I have to generate a automatically return mail that our customers will know when I am back to the office again. The next time I will also generate it in english

Based on population you Americans should be whipping out butts!

Come'on everyone, get your flowering Neps on there!

The more who use it, the better the resource will become.

I can already see a M & F N. campanulata coming into flower at the same time in the same country!!! Sounds like a perfect match to me?

Aaron.
