    Post Cleaning out my Collection! Lots of Rarities!

    Hi All,
    I'm putting up this list- I'm trying to gauge how to go about doing this: I'm hoping to offer the following to those in the general area where I live, near Philadelphia, PA, or anyone who wants to come here from where ever, as I'm pretty sure some would drive a bit for some of these plants. Basically the deal is, these are all plants that I don't want to ship, as they are either too big/ too rare/ or too heavy. I'd like to trade towards Sarracenia, but what I'm most into is Sarr. purpurea and rosea; I'd like to trade these plants towards Sarr.s w/ locale info., esp. purps. I just wanted to see how feasable this would be/how many people are in my area or would want to come out to this area, and whether a one day open house trade at my house would work, or if it'd have to be on a first come first served individual basis. Also, maybe 'meeting in the middle' might allow more people opportunities to trade. In other words, I need responses to this thread from anyone who'd be interested, so I can get an idea. Anyway, no more talking, this is what I got (I can post pics too-just ask);

    All traded by pot, plants are not broken up- I don’t have time to repot, for pickup only, can’t ship

    Drosera:
    glabripes(old, long stemmed specimen)
    regia (in one huge pot, multi crowned, 1 from California Carnivores (could be ‘Big Easy’- not sure, haven’t tried leaf cuttings), 1 seed grown from wild seed from Bainskloof, many pups- overall approx. 10+ growth points- 11 years old, windowsill)
    cuneifolia (about 5 plants in pot)
    slackii (1 plant in pot)
    aliciae (wild seed from Cape Town, spectacular clone, 1st place at Philly Flower Show)
    hilaris (4-6 pots of, from seed collected above Durban Gardens, RSA- mature size)
    cistiflora (4 growths in one pot, purple flower)
    sp ‘silverhill seeds’ ‘cape town rosette’(3 pots, each crammed full of sundew)

    Brocchinia reducta- densely-crowned (8+ growths) huge pot, flowering plant

    Pinguicula:
    cyclosecta X 2 (2 plants per pot)
    sp. ‘Huahuapan’
    macrophylla X 2 (2 plants per pot)
    sp. ‘Lautner 92/52’
    rectifolia
    ‘Pirouette’ X 2
    agnata ‘red leaf’
    rotundiflora
    gracilis
    esseriana (3-4 plants in pot)
    gigantea x moctezumae
    moranensis ‘fraser beaut’
    laueana (2 plants in pot)
    moranensis var. orchioides
    sp. ‘Koehres’

    Heliamphora nutans- 9 time 1st. place winner in the Philly Flower Show- nearly got best in show rosette- spectacular- don’t know why I’m selling- has approx. 3 mature divisions in 1 big live sphag. pot, and two seedlings-have owned since 2000- presently has maturing seed pods, and one crown is dividing to two- the pride of my collection for sure!

    Nepenthes:
    clipeata- the real deal, from Wistuba, mature, near flowering, with a large basal growth as well. Pitchers near 8-10” tall- must be a good deal for this one!
    rajah- BE clone 2- have owned it since 2001, when it was ” wide- now approx. 12” wide, with nice pitchers coming
    lavicola- approx. 2 foot vine, mature, don’t know sex yet, large basal offset
    N. ovata- from Exotica Plants, about 7 years ago; a top cutting, with a basal node- exceptional clone, lower pitchers are as black as a ramispina pitcher, and robust-my last and only cutting from original large vine

    Many Nep. seedlings, though not sure if I want to release any just yet:
    Nep. macfarlanei ‘Mt. Ulu Kali,Genting Highlands, Malaysia’- 2 years from seed, approx. 3” wide, very colorful pitchers
    Nep. ventricosa ‘Red’ x Mira- 1 years from seed, approx. 4” wide
    N. ventricosa ‘Red Giant’ x ventricosa ‘Black Peristome’- 1 year old from seed, 4” inches wide already!

    Stylidium:
    debilies- new species, multiple growths, one clone, from Queensland, Aus.

    May be some other carnivores (Sarracenia?), if I can be convinced …

    Non carnivores:
    Cycad; Encephalartos macrostrobilus (magnificent young, caudex plant)
    Orchids: Bucket orchids,etc; Stanhopea xytriophora, Coryanthes bruckmuelleri, Cory. macrantha, Gongora sp. ‘1202’(undescribed); SPECIMEN; Gongora chocoensis (Spectacular clone and specimen- HUGE!)


    In production:
    Nep. mira xx Briggsiana ‘Hortus Botanicus clone’
    N. aristolochioides x diatas ‘meadow form’
    N. aristolochioides x (ventricosa x talangensis)- seedlings, should look very much like an aristo, but one that can grow on your windowsill, and withstand neglect, with hardiness like ventricosa
    N. aristolochioides x tentaculata ‘Mt. Kinabalu form’
    N. mira seedlings

    Anyway, that's the list. Tell me what you think, thanks all, Nick Haywood 'bluesboy'

    Nowhere near you, but I hope you decide to at least post pictures I'd kill for a glimpse at some of that stuff.

    I would kill a man to live in PA or the tristate area right now. Nice collection. Hope you get some great Sarracenia in trade.

    I saw this H. nutans and the pot of D. aliciae at the Philly Phlower Show. They really are spectabulous. I might even have some pics somewhere, if I can find them on the comp.
