Venus fly traps - FlyTrapCare.com - Care, feeding & more - Tissue Culture Kits

Discussion started by vicks 7 years ago
Ok, Im taking the plunge

I will be ordering a Tissue culture kit in the next few weeks. I contacted Carol at hometissueculture.org and will place an order for an extended kit.

I think this will prove to be an interesting challenge, as well as a opportunity to really share our plants. Growth is sped up and trading means everyone an now share!

I'd love to meet up and then get a free tissue culture from someone who has a rare plant. grow and divide it. give a whole plant back as a thank you or give you one of my own plants.

I am planning on bringing a Ceph or two in sometime this year. If you like to share shipping costs for a kit please let me know ASAP. Shipping cost will be about the same if we bring in 1 or 3 kits.

Cheers guys

I bought recently from Peter at Pans Carnivores in Cape Town. He is very helpful and friendly. I ordered a Big Mouth (VFT) and he sent me that and 2 bonus plants a young typical and a little Alice sundew (my first - definitely not my last!)

I recieved my Kit today!
Ended up been rather expensive with shipping, vat and customs taking a share. Taxes and custom fees added on another 25% to the cost. However lets hope for the best. I have a few seeds to prepare over the weekend. Just need to buy some alcohol and bleach then off we go!!!

Also, if you are looking at buying cephs, take a look here: panscarnivores.com/cephalotus-follicularis-albany-pitcher-plant/

Its a South African site, introduced to me by Sundewman. I dont know where you were going to purchase yours from, but this seems to be the only place in SA to sell live ones, and I assume it would be much easier (and probably cheaper) to buy one locally.

Just thought Id mention it!
