Hi there,

Question 1.
I am thinking about purchasing some Typical Drosera capillaris seed and was wondering if they would have the same genetics as the ones located in the Green Swamp North Carolina?

Question 2.
Does anyone know of anyone that sells "Typical" D.capillaris seed, possibly with origin attached?

Thanks guys.

Answer 1.
The only way to get capi seeds with the genetics of Green Swamp, NC is to get seeds labeled as such, and trust the seller enough to be sure that that's what they are. If you buy "typical" capi seeds, they will have the same genes as some from Green Swamp, NC, but they won't be expressing those same genes. So they won't be able to be labeled as D. capillaris "Green Swamp, NC", just simply capillaris.
Answer 2.
No typical plant, capillaris or otherwise, will have location data attached. If they are labeled with a location, or as a named cultivar, their genotype is specific to that place or variety, so they aren't your typical capi. As to a source, check the seed bank. We have three varieties of capillaris currently available. A typical, a named cultivar, and one with location data. You're eligible to request them all, just one per month.

What are the 3 varieties and one with location data? Also I am international so do you still accept SASE?

Since that last post, the capi with NC location data got requested. The three varieties we have left are:
1. Typical: Self explanatory.
2. Named: "Emeralds Envy".
3. Location data: (Bertioga, Brazil), (Cuba), and (Eatonville, FL). Of these, the Eatonville has been reported as the most successful, the Cuba is new, and the Bertioga, also new, seems to be pretty temperamental. I say that because out of about a dozen people, I was the only one able to germinate them, and I attribute that to me forgetting I had the seeds. After I re-discovered that I had them, I sowed them in the humid, warm Tennessee summer and I think they liked it because they sprouted, and I'm now getting seeds. I can't say that any of them will like Canada, but the Eatonville ones seem to be more adaptive to different climates.
For international requests, you make your request, up to three choices (plus a bonus if desired), once every three months. I send you PayPal info, you send $2 US, I send seeds. No SASE necessary.
