The Energizer D. Carbarup giveaway

by ChefDean » Sat Dec 07, 2019 10:39 pm

This dang plant (actually 4 plants) just keeps on keepin' on. All 4 are producing gemmae right now, but I wasn't as aggressive in harvesting them this time, so all should be viable.
I have 60 D. Carbarup gemmae (for now) that I want to give away, 12 each to 5 winners. The plants themselves appear to be going down, but I'll get more gemmae to keep them going.
I'm going a little redneck in this giveaway, with a 5 part question. You pick a part, 1 through 5, and answer it, providing the number you're attempting to answer. The first correct answer for each number wins.
This time around, the winner sends a SASE for the gemmae, I'll PM the winners with an address to send a SASE.
Here we go.
1. Will Ferrell starred in a racing movie, what city is in the title?
2. His characters name is 2 first names, what are they?
3. What was his mantra that he learned from his daddy?
4. What did he refuse to say that earned him a broken arm? (2 possible answers)
5. In the end, who did he race for?
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.

Great start. 1 and 2 have been correctly answered.
Who's gonna do 3, 4, and 5?

Do it! Answer one and get some more! You could always spread the love and do a giveaway with the plants if you feel you get too many that germinate.
Just sayin'.

Number 3 down! Woot, woot!
I've got a few sprouts also, a couple have already opened up their first carnivorous leaf. I sowed the small ones, the ones that I was a bit aggressive in harvesting, and most are still green. One is even sprouting.
Congrats, I'll PM you the address.

I'm going to close this down so that the gemmae get to the winners as fresh as possible. I'll sow the remaining gemmae so that I have fresh plants next year to give away more gemmae.
Congrats to the four winners! The weather is looking pretty good here for now, so I'll get the two envelopes I have out on Monday. The other two envelopes, when they come in, will likely not go out until the following weekend due to below freezing temperatures predicted here.
Again, congratulations!

Good news! The remaining two envelopes arrived yesterday, and the freezing temperatures held off a bit. Two envelopes went out Monday, the other two will go out today.
Congrats, again to the winners for being versed on redneck.
