D. Spatulata is one of the bonuses this month, but you can definitely still request it.
Where you're a new member, would you like to change your request to one of the Capensis varieties in class 0, with a + bonus? That way you get 2 packs for the price of one.
Just a thought, let me know.
Chef

I was looking for a Class 0 packet that had more than others because I thought they weren't popular.

I'll take your recommendation on the seeds.

It's not that it's not popular, it's actually pretty common. It's that we got a couple of big donations in over the past few months, so I'm trying to clear the older seed out.
Let's change this to a request for D. Capensis mixed + bonus, so you get a variety of Capes as well as the Spatulata. Both tropical, both sow and grow. Two dews for the price of one. Cool?

Would that mean that the order is double dewty?

Order received.
Your order number is 0271.
I'll PM you shortly with a mailing address for your SASE.
Thank you for your order.

For Sarracenia or Dionaea seeds, I strongly suggest you use a 70 cent non-machinable stamp on your return envelope. (The inside one) For Drosera, Pinguicula, and Utricularia seeds, the extra postage is not necessary.
If you can't find a non-machinable stamp, I suggest a forever stamp plus a 15 cent stamp or two regular forever stamps on your return envelope.
The USPS machinery loves to crush those seeds. 

Reminder to all:
Please remember return address on all envelopes.
Please remember to write your Forum username and order number somewhere on the envelope or in a note.
I don't have access to a cross reference of real-world names linked to usernames.
Remembering these things helps me fill orders quicker.
Thank you.

Happy growing,
Dean

I didn't forget to update. Seeds haven't arrived but it may be a holdup in Philly

That seems to be the case with a lot of people, but not consistently.
I sent a SASE to a member, then I mailed out another envelope to him a week later. The second envelope arrived in three days, but the first one just arrived a couple of days ago, about a week and a half after the second.
I'll keep my fingers crossed they arrive OK.

Seeds still haven't been received.
Could I make a new request next week and send them to another address?

You could do that, but you may end up with a metric crap of Capes if you request them again.
It's probably just delayed. I received an envelope two days ago that was mailed to me from Florida on the 5th. I was very surprised that the gemmae were still alive, but they were also packaged very well in anticipation of a possible delay.
Yours are just seeds, so I wouldn't worry about them dying or anything. Maybe make your February request for something different and, if the Cape seeds haven't arrived to you by the time I get your February SASE, I'll throw a few in. We only have 9 or 10 grams of Cape seeds (that's a huge amount).
Take care.
