Hi everyone. I have recently decided i have bit off more than i can chew with my nepenthes collection. I havent been able to give as much time to my plants as i would like to, and my apartment isnt really meeting their lighting needs even with a huge 300 watt CFL. Some of them have also gone nearly dry several times and dont look very happy.
The point is i need to get them out to people who can manage to care for these plants. I will post a picture of each plant for you to look at. Pm me if you would like to give a new home to one of these little guys. I will accept trades for plants, money, and possibly Paypal which we can discuss. I am interested in cacti or anything that can survive temps down to 20F without protection and is preferably a little drought tolerant. I also like anything small and interesting. Just no carnivores please.
I have left the dead pitchers and leaves on for you to see their condition, but they will be cleaned up before i send them.
First come first served. If someone wants to buy multiple plants this will help me, and cut down on your shipping cost.
Here are the plants. Serious inquires only please.

Growth was stunted for awhile as you can see, but is on the mend.

Never pitchered for me. Got it cheap from Sarracenia NW because the tag was missing. They suspected it was alba.

Send me a P.M. about the ones you are interested in. I plan to use the smallest usps flat rate box I can fit them in with plenty of bubble wrap. So just the cost of the box for shipping.

I'd be willing to take the Miranda and the x fusca off your hands, and give them a good home. Hit me up to talk details.

I just PMed you again, but I cannot find it myself. It is like I never even typed it. LOL

I am interested in any of them except the Home Depot Rescues ( I have plenty of my own LOL) or the ventricosa. I have Dragon Fruit Cactus, Stapelia gigantean, Stapelia sp (small maroon/burgundy flowers) and 8-10 more cactus and succulents but I do not know the species of. I could take generous cuttings of any of them that you are interested in. I also have some Sarrs and Drosera that I would be willing to trade. Let me know if anything interests you. It gets down to about 30f here in the winter. If you want I could try and take some pics, but I think you would have to give me an email address or someplace to send them to as I do not think the PM is working. At least not for me. LOL

and here are the Petiolata and Maxima "wavy leaves" that I received.
They're smaller than I thought they'd be but it will be fun watching them grow.
Let's hope they're happy with their new environment (and the too big of a pot that I put each of them into :))
Thanks plantfreak1!
