I'd like to trade a couple d. capensis alba seedlings for some basic VFTs, Sarrs, or other Droseras. Still just trying to grow my collection, so not hoping for anything fancy. If anyone has a spare Dente or Sawtooth VFT that'd be awesome. Here's my wish list if you're feeling generous. ;)

I got these seeds from Matt and they first germinated in early December 09. You can check out their early stages in my thread here: ... t3169.html (be warned, there are silly cat pictures)

As you can see, they've grown quite vigorously in the last few months. :) This picture is current as of today, March 30th. I've fed them betta fish flakes every few weeks and have kept them under a mix of sunlight and florescent light. The biggest leaves are about 1.5 - 2 inches long. I plan on separating them next week, about 2-3 plants per cup. The cups are 8.5 oz, if you're trying to get a sense of scale.

Drop me a line if you're interested! :D

Ooh I'd be interested! :D
But all have to trade is tons and tons of regular capensis seedlings :( I may be able to spare one of my VFT seedlings that I got from Matt. They've grown quite alot, but it's so hard to let one of my babies go *sniff*

I can trade some typical venus flytraps! I have lots and lots of babies that I separated about a few weeks ago. I also have a few flowers coming up I'm going to pollinate if you're willing to wait... a long time... for more seedlings. They will be considered "typical" because they'll be seed-grown.
