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
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)

moranensis ‘fraser beaut’
laueana (2 plants in pot)

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!
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 ½” 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 ½ years from seed, approx. 3” wide, very colorful pitchers
Nep. ventricosa ‘Red’ x Mira- 1 ½ years from seed, approx. 4” wide
N. ventricosa ‘Red Giant’ x ventricosa ‘Black Peristome’- 1 year old from seed, 4” inches wide already!
debilies- new species, multiple growths, one clone, from Queensland, Aus.
May be some other carnivores (Sarracenia?), if I can be convinced …
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!)
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'
