Hello everyone! I will be hosting a heliamphora growing bundle raffle and the drawing will be on July 7 2023. All plants and supplies will be shipped from carnivorous plant nursery (United States region only as international shipping of live plants is not worth the trouble on my end). All people participating must comment on this post with a number from 0 to 99999. Do not pick a number that is already picked as I will be forced to forfeit the prize to another participant. I will use a random number generator on the drawing date of July 7th to pick a number and will announce the winning number with a screenshot on this post on the day of drawing. The winner will be inboxed immediately to confirm their mailing address and I will order the plants from carnivorous plant nursery and send the order confirmation information to their inbox. I cannot ship my own heliamphora as this would be devastating to them and my packing skills are clumsy at best lol. If the items are out of stock at the time I will just send a digital gift card directly from their store instead of equal value.

Contents
Heliamphora Minor medium size x1 (they don't have a large size unfortunately)
Heliamphora Nutans x2 (only one size available)
Live sphagnum moss (red or golden)
2.5 quarts of Nepenthes mix (peat moss, Perlite, shredded sphagnum, fir bark
Cephalotus soil mix 2.5 quarts (perlite, peat moss, horticultural sand, leaf mould, fir bark)

Indeed it is generous. I felt it was better than giving plants like sarrecenia, vft, Drosera and pinguicula that a lot of people probably have lots of those besides them being too common to begin with as carnivorous plants. If I'm going to do a giveaway I prefer to do something that is more worth it for the community.

@DragonsEye the number you chose is the first few digits of pi, rounded. It goes 3.14159265358979323846... and keeps on going forever (I memorized 50 digits since I had nothing better to do lol).

@Lilyofthevalley9 Could you consider letting people from outside of the US join the giveaway, but have to pay for the shipping? Thanks!

Yes I could allow that. I'm very careful though because a lot of countries have different Import laws. Last time I shipped something (to Australia) customs tore the package open. Not to mention import permits and the fact that most local nurseries I go through don't ship internationally meaning I have to ship it myself once received. I could definitely do that though.
