Well, since the Sarracenia seed season is almost here....

I really like growing carnivorous plants from seed. So this winter I would like to sow as many kinds of Sarracenia seeds, hybrids and species, as I can. I have a few species of seed currently for trade, but I can also trade some plants for the seed.

I am also interested in temperate Drosera and Pinguicula seeds.

Let Me Know
I have some leucophylla seed, if you are interested.
Keep an eye on this trading post. In about six weeks, or whenever I harvest the final seed pod waiting to ripen, I plan on having a big giveaway here. I have kind of a unique idea planned. I won't have any species, but all hybrids from crosses I performed this past spring. Unfortunately, squirrels (I'm assuming) nabbed several developing seed pods from some unique crosses, but I should have around 10-15 different ones available, provided there are no more losses.
Sarracenia, let me be the first to say...WOO HOO!!!
Ok, all you have to do is get a plant big enough to eat a squirrel...
... with acorn-scented nectar

And there are already sarras big enough to eat squirrels. anyone seen gardenofeden's flava?

Probably mice got the seed pods. They are notorious for this. Grasshoppers are bad to eat a developing ovary too.

GardenofEden Flava! Show me!
I'll be waiting too!!!

Heres a link to the picture that I think you're looking for, SarraceniaObsessed.
