This is an auction specifically geared towards those of you who have just entered the carnivorous plant experience.
Up for grabs is a book: The Savage Garden by Peter D'Amato. This is widely regarded as the "Bible" of carnivorous plant cultivation, and is a must have for new growers.
Along with the book are 2 species of plants to start your collection:
1 Typical Venus Flytrap
1 Drosera Capensis (The Cape Sundew)
All pictures are of the actual items you will receive.
The book is used, but in good condition. All the pages are present, untorn, and not dog-eared. It covers cultivation for almost every type of carnivorous plant out there.
The flytrap has been grown outside in full sun. If you look closely, you will see a young flytrap at the base of the larger plant. You WILL receive this little guy too.
The capensis has also been growing in full sun, and therefore, is very hardy. If you kill this plant, I'll congratulate you.
Sorry guys, I'm broke, you bite the shipping on this one. I'll get back to you on how much I think it'll cost. I'll assume full responsibility for making sure the book cannot smash the plants. These plants will be shipped bare root, wrapped in sphagnum, with a generous amount of soil coating the roots.
USA only please.
