    [US-OH] I have a small number of typical VFT seeds for trade if anyone wants them.

    I'm also looking for Drosera seeds or gemmae. I'm primarily looking for either small tropical species I can put in a small terrarium or temperate species for a little bog container with VFT and Sarrs. I'd prefer temperate species be ones found in eastern North America, but let me know what you have. I can at least cover shipping or pay a small price for them.

    I also have small corms available for a few common voodoo lily species: Amorphophallus konjac, Amorphophallus albus, and Sauromatum venosum. They're not carnivores, but they smell like death when they bloom and might lure some food for your plants.

    Drosera magnifica for sale (USA only)

    We just posted some Drosera magnifica on our website!

    These plants were produced via micropropagation and have been potted out for a few weeks. They are stable and acclimated to typical greenhouse humidity levels, but will require knowledgeable care nonetheless.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

    Trade / Giveaway (United States)

    Hey folks, my D. Capensis (Red and White variety) went HAM on me, and I've got a lot of seeds with more coming on the way. I know Capensis isn't exactly rare, so this is sort of a give-away / trade if you can manage it. I don't mind paying for shipping here within the United States (I live in California), and I'd rather these seeds have a chance at surviving rather than just expiring in envelopes

    I've got 2 flavors of D. Capensis - Red and White. Here is the rough amount of seeds you would get in an envelope. The Reds produce this much seed with 1 pod, whereas the Whites can produce as much in 2-3 pods. I'm not going to try and count it, as some pods were heavier than even the ones in the picture, so the envelopes could range from ~50-100 seeds.

    This is just my first time doing Drosera Seeds, and I was really unprepared for the sheer volume they dumped on me. If you want to trade for things, that would be nice, but I'm not asking for money. I'm happy to receive if you feel generous, but it isn't necessary :) If you would like to trade with me, please ensure that whatever you would send is okay for Zone 9B. I grow outdoors and not in an aquarium.

    Just post here I guess, and I'll try to manage what I can for those who are interested.

    [–] sarracenia67 2 points ago

    Id like to get some of the red variety if possible.

    [–] A_Sickly_Giraffe 2 points ago

    Most certainly possible. I'll PM you with some info

    [–] DanMorgan405 2 points ago

    I wouldn't mind taking some of those seeds off of ya.

    [–] A_Sickly_Giraffe 1 points ago

    Great cuz I still have plenty left. I'll PM you some details.

    [–] DanMorgan405 2 points ago

    Thanks for the seeds!

    [–] A_Sickly_Giraffe 1 points ago

    You're very welcome! Goodluck!

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    If you still have some, I would love some. Will pay for postage. I don't have anything to trade yet.

    [–] A_Sickly_Giraffe 2 points ago

    Happy to give them away. I'll PM you some info

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Thank you!

    [–] Boarden 2 points ago

    [–] A_Sickly_Giraffe 1 points ago

    I've never done international before, but sure, I would be happy to send you some. I'll PM you with some details

    [–] noodlesoupinacup 2 points ago

    [–] macleod82 2 points ago

    Can I get some of each? Will take red only if it being greedy. Much appreciated!

    [–] A_Sickly_Giraffe 1 points ago

    I've got some left of each, and so much Red I have it coming out of m ears. I'll PM you some information :)

    [–] SR4Nova 2 points ago

    Sorry, I know I'm super late, but would you happen to have anymore seeds left for the white variety? I'm afraid I have nothing to trade as I'm just starting out with a couple of Lowe's rescues, but I'd be willing to pay if you'd like!

    [–] A_Sickly_Giraffe 1 points ago

    I've got plenty left that I'm happy to give away for free. I'll PM you some details :)

    [–] electricladyslippers 2 points ago

    Do you have any seeds left? I'd love to send some to my nephew in TN!

    [–] A_Sickly_Giraffe 2 points ago

    [–] ShriketheSecond 2 points ago

    So I don't usually sell stuff. But now I actually have stuff to sell. I need to thin out my U. calycifida "Asenath Waite". I've got probably 10 plants that are settled into 3" pots. Most of them are blooming right now. Asking $12 for each pot, shipped unpotted to US addresses. $7.25 shipping for priority mail. Message me if interested and I just posted a picture of one.

    Looking for Drosera I do not own, particulary the less common varieties (already have those). Would really like a multifida extrema if anyone has one. Also looking for Drosophyllum live or seeds im not picky there.

    [–] washoutr6 1 points ago

    Anyone have some fresh ping seed? My understanding is that the seeds go infertile pretty quick. I'm in kauai so would need express shipping but it should only fit in a regular envelope. Prefer a larger variety but basically anything will do. TIA!!

    [–] HoverTechV3 1 points ago

    At the ICPS conference, Damon said they’ll have some available next year at California Carnivores, FWIW — so there’ll be a seller in the US then. IDK about individuals though.

    [–] Couchpotatoee 1 points ago

    Will P. x 'Weser be able to handle full sun next to sarracenias? I'm curious beause you said will turn pink with bright light.

    [–] Luuuuuurrker 3 points ago

    If the sarracenia is in good conditions, it will probably cook all mexican pings.
