It takes anywhere from 6 months to 7 years to grow a carnivorous plant from seed to maturity although most mature in 1 - 2 years. If you lack patience or want to build up some familiarity with growing CPs, you can always order a full grown plant from FlyTrapStore, which is run by Matt, this forum's administrator and owner.



Happy growing,

FlyTrapCare Community Seedbank Rules & Suggestions

This is a community project to allow FTC Forum members to share excess seeds from their cultivated Carnivorous Plants. Its main purpose is to help beginners get started. It can help experienced growers expand their collections. It won't work without your support.

The seedbank does not want to discourage individual seed giveaways or replace them.

FTC Community Seedbank is open to all FTC Forum members. Initially, we are limiting distribution to USA mailing addresses only. This may change.

There is no charge for seeds, send in an SASE, get seeds. (What is an SASE?)
We believe in the "Pay it Forward" philosophy. Contribute to the community and help other members.

The seedbank inventory will be listed in this forum and updated. Seeds will be classified by ease of cultivation with the more difficult species going to more experienced members.

You must be a member of FlyTrapCare Forums to order seed.

You may order one package of seeds per calendar month.

Seeds are distributed on a first come - first served basis. If there are 5 requests for a species and 3 in stock, then the first 3 requests get them.

Seeds may not be resold or traded, but excess seed may be given to a fellow grower.

The seedbank is run by volunteers, please be patient with us.
Please contact the Seedbank Manager by P.M. with all problems and suggestions. This Seedbank is a work in progress. Everything here is subject to change.


This is Matt's forum. He is the final arbiter. He has the final word.


Ordering Seed

Please read all the rules and stickies before you order. Make sure you're eligible to order the species you want.

Procedure
1) Start a new thread in this forum (For Example...Hollyhock wants Drosera capensis "Typical") and post it here.
2) Seedbank Manager will reply to your thread and P.M. you with an order number and his mailing address. He will remove your seeds from the Seedbank inventory.
3) Make up an SASE. (#10 business size envelope suggested {4 1/8" x 9 1/2"} ) Write your Forum UserName, Order Number, and Species Wanted on a piece of paper and enclose it in the SASE. (What is an SASE?)
4) Mail the SASE.
5) Post a reply to your thread, stating that you have mailed the SASE.
6) Seedbank Manager receives SASE, fulfills order, mails it back to you, and replies to the thread that he has done so.
7) You receive seed and reply to thread that it has arrived.
8) Thread is closed.
9) You participate in the Forums, be a member of the community, and learn how to grow those seeds that have just arrived. Ask questions. Answer questions.

These replies to the original request thread allow everyone to follow the order and encourage timely transactions. They allow the Seedbank Manager to keep track of things and hopefully not make too many mistakes. If an envelope disappears, you can see at a glance when it was last handled.

If you order seed and don't mail your SASE in 2 weeks, your order will be cancelled and those seeds will be returned to inventory. If you don't post that you've mailed it, I'll assume you didn't mail it.

Donating Seed

Please donate the excess seed from your cultivated CP. This seedbank can't survive without it.
PLEASE DO NOT DONATE FIELD COLLECTED SEED.

Donating Procedure
1) P.M. Seedbank Manager for mailing address and see if seed is needed (If there is half a pound of Drosera capensis seed in the Seedbank, that's probably enough.) If your seed species isn't listed in the Seedbank inventory, suggest the appropriate classification for it. (1= easy to grow), (2= Dormancy or Stratification needed or easy to grow but rare), or (3= very rare species or special conditions needed for germination or cultivation.)
2) Optional but it makes my job easier: Clean your seed. Separate stalks and flower debris from seed.
3) Optional but it makes my job easier: Portion your seed into individual seed packets. (Origami seed packets) (Origami envelopes) 25 - 100 seeds per pack for small Drosera seeds, 10 - 25 for Sarracenia or Dionaea, 5 - 10 for rare species.
4) Make sure your seed is legibly labelled with the species, date collected, and your Forum Username. Please be relatively certain of your species ID.
5) Mail your seed. A padded envelope is requested for large seeds and large quantities of small seed. Padded envelopes protect seed against crushing by mail handling machinery. 1/4 inch is maximum thickness for normal letter postage. If you use a normal envelope, please pad it the best you can.
6) Bask in the warm glow and good feelings you get from helping your fellow CP grower.

But Wait! There's more!
Donors will make or break this Seedbank. You should get some special perk for donating. And here's what we're going to do. Anyone who donates seed will get 48 hours advance notice before a new species is posted publicly on the Seedbank Forum. This will give you the first crack at new species and an opportunity to beat the crowd. But to keep things as fair as possible, even seed donors will be limited to ordering one package a month, same as everyone else.

The Seedbank uses SASEs for transactions. The return envelope must have US postage stamps on it to be acceptable to the mail system here. These are usually not available anywhere except in the USA. So yes, the Seedbank is currently sending seed only to US addresses for now. This may change if I can find an acceptable way to deal with foreign SASEs that doesn't involve too much extra work for the seedbank manager, me. Another option we are considering is establishing a second seedbank, outside of the USA.

By the way, I mailed seeds from my personal inventory to you today, capensis and aliciae. I had an extra international stamp so I used that for postage. I hope they arrive safely. That was me personally, not the seedbank.

Good growing,
Mike

You become a member of the community when you open your account.

The Pay It Forward principle is our goal, not an immediate demand.
Someday, when you are able to do so conveniently, send us some seeds or give some to a new grower. Either way it strengthens the hobby and our community.

It looks like you just joined recently so you are eligible to order seeds in the Class 0 group.
When you've been a member for a month, you can request seeds from Class 1.

Good growing,
Mike
