Hi. This is a historical post. I sold everything on here! I am moving on to just Venus Fly trap collection. (Maybe Nepenthes)

Now with winter coming to an end, Plants will be coming out of Dormancy!

I WILL pay for shipping in purchases!

I am beggining tissue culture and will trade flasked cultures soon, of darlingtonia and various nepenthes! Or whatever you want that I have on my growlist I can TC it! 8-)


Note to TCers...
I am willing to send explant material of any plants on my grow list, and only ask that you send back at least 25% of the results, and credit for any special mutations that it yeilds. ;)

Darlingtonia seeds... yep darlingtonia seeds for trade!!! LIMITED AMMOUNT!
Capensis (alba, normal)
sensitive plant
various orchids (unknown types)

Nepenthes viking a whole bunch!

planifolia (my favorite, easy to grow, nice red leaves!)
Essrenia (I constantly undergo cuttings, winter is ending, and the winter leaves are the best to use for cuttings. I have several!)
Sethos (like essrenia, I have SEVERAL cuttings)


filiformis (both forms tracyi and filiformis) Cuttings upon request
Capillaris cuttings, or plant
Binata rooted root cuttings
Capensis Alba cuttings upon request

venus fly traps Coming out of dormancy now! Chance to cross pollinate and get interesting variety!

some are small half inch or less traps.
i have a limited ammout of seedlings
medium plants


purpera venosa
a "specimin" sized rubra (i beleive it is rubra, like 90% chance!)
a 4 or 6 inch high rubra gulfensis (i have multiple of these) - EASY TO GROW SPECIES!
cuttings of a leucophyla X rubra
cuttings of a psittanca
rhisome divisions of any of these

1 Nepenthes Ventricosa
Im making cuttings of my Crazy growing Miranda (grows alot of shoots! and plus its HUGE for me anyway!)


Unidentified orchid, with long leaves. willing to give away for free, if someone pays for shipping.
Sensitive plant (seedlings and seeds)
flowering size chives (green onion)

I do enjoy cuttings of any sort. Money is ok, though not preferred.
I am looking to expand my collection, anything I dont have is Ok.

Looking for:
and one that everyone has... CAPENSIS (any form, preferably the red or typical forms.)
Venus fly trap Culivars (any, Dente and cupped traps are high in the list)
drosera binata (any form)
sarrcencia purpera (red form)
any nepenthes (if anyone is willing to offer it)
any utricularia thats quite a "weed" in collections
s. flava red tube form
s. alata
any pinguiculas
I am starting to get into TCing , so any TC equipment (jars, MS media, Hormones, ETC.) is acceptable!

Cobra Lilly (seeds, plants, stolons, cuttings)

Thanks 8-)

pictures of a couple plants up for trade. some plants are here that are no longer for trade. a trade may be canceled at any moment for unknown reasons to come. hopefully i wont do that though!
I will only ship bare root. this makes shipping cheaper.
if you want to know how to care for any of these plants, i can help you! feel free to ask below!
I will try to get photos of plants up asap. when you order a plant, i will take a photo and upload it under the plant's name, and your screen name behind it. ... 20trading/

Don't have a Bohemian Garnet. Sorry Aaron.

Bombsboy: The binatas are mature and flowering at the moment. I have 6 or so of them. I'd sell them for $4 each. You could have a small capensis red for $2--I think. But the limit is one. They still aren't quite established in my collection yet.

Shipping shouldn't be that much since you live so close. Probably $ 2 or so.

I would trade them for a rubra gulfensis or two. Are they genetically different? Or are they are divisions of the same plant.
