    S. purpurea from Reedy Creek Bog (Deathstalker - $50)

    Up for auction are 3 young Sarracenia purpurea legally collected from Reedy Creek Bog in Caroline County, VA. The site these plants came from was destroyed by a local power company spraying herbicide along a power line. 80-90% of the mature plants died as a result. However, many were dug up and transplanted to a preserve as a last ditch effort to save the genotype. I kept and raised the seedling, as they would have been overwhelmed by Sphagnum moss during transplanting. Not only are these very attractive specimens, but they are also highly valued for conservation of the species diversity.

    Here are some sample photos of the plants that are up for auction;

    Only two of the plants up for auction are depicted (bottom right in the first photo, and the plant in the last photo). They all look fairly similar, but I will update with images of the actual plants upon request.

    Bidding starts at $5, shipping will be $6, U.S. only please.
