I am offering this sarracenia division. It came to me labeled only as "sarracenia species" so I really have no clue what it is. It did flower this spring (pics included below) and the division you are getting ships with whatever flower stalks are attached. I never bagged or Covered the flowers, so I am assuming they were Polinated, but don't know for sure. it has grown happily in My zone 5 Michigan bog for about 3 years now.

I return I am seeking mature specimens of any cold temperate drosera, such as rotundifolia, Anglica, linearis, etc OR other sarracenia divisions, either species or hybrids.

I will cover shipping on my end. You cover shipping on yours.

Open to US residents.

this is the division you are getting.

Sitting here wondering why I had no takers. Re read my post, and realized I only put about half of the plants I was Looking for in The list of stuff I'd accept in trade. Allow me to amend that. In addition to cold hardy bog plants, I am also looking for weedy terrarium plants, preferably dews (Adelae, binata, capensis, anything really, as long as it comes with a label.) Would prefer established plants, or generous cuttings thereof. Sturdy pings, any flowering utrics, (I already have sandersonii ) pretty much any cp that is Easy to grow/sturdy/weedy, Does not require a cold dormancy (at least not fridge, but My house gets into the fifities during winter) spreads easily.

She said shed lije some of those utrics sflguy, she likes the weedy ones they tend to be survivors of everything got the most part lol.

Id go in on this to trade some stuff but i really don't have things that are weedy that aren't already taken by my friends daughter for her class. But you shouldn't have any trouble, plus i couldn't grow a sarr for my life they all get spindly and long then fall over no matter how strong my light is. Goodluck hun

Sarracenia are supposed to be grown in full sun. No artificial or supplemental light can even come close to the sun.

That might also explain why your Dionaea seem incapable of digesting flies or 3 insects in succession. If your light can't keep your Sarracenia happy, it won't keep your Dionaea happy either.

For the record,I happen to like many of the 'weedy' utric flowers. sandersonii and bisquamata are cute. Yellow ones all look the same to me though.
