    Pinguicula lusitanica seeds! Captain Hamata $8

    Well...better late than never! I managed to find something to offer.

    Up for Auction...

    Just collected TODAY! P. lusitanica seeds! Yep...these are the cute little guys! My container was a carpet of these sticky little pings...really pretty. Broken camera so no pics. :-/

    From Wikipedia:

    "Pinguicula lusitanica... is a small butterwort that grows wild in acidic peat bog areas along coastal western Europe from western Scotland (north to Orkney) and Ireland south through western England and western France to Iberia, and Morocco in northwestern Africa.
    It usually forms rosettes 3-5 cm (1 inch) across. It is a perennial plant that sometimes acts as an annual plant as it may die after one growth season. It flowers just months after germinating and produces copious amounts of seed, making it somewhat of a weed for carnivorous plant growers. The flowers are small, pale pink with a yellow centre, and funnel-shaped. It self pollinates to ensure that it will grow back the following year.

    P. lusitanica grows easily in most environments as long as it is not directly exposed to the sun and is kept wet with rainwater. It will feed on any small insects.... is considered an easy grower by many carnivorous plant growers and is a good candidate as a beginner carnivorous plant."

    I'm not gonna count the seeds but it was one seed pod and part of another. Enough to start your own little sticky colony. I love this ping!

    Bidding starts at $1 for one pack o' seeds. US shipping only. I will pay shipping.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    Presents are the best way to show someone how much you care. It is like this tangible thing that you can point to and say 'Hey man, I love you this many dollars worth. -Michael Scott, The Office
