    Nep seeds needed

    Hi, i need some nepenthes seeds ( any would do fine but id prefer ampullaria glabrata fusca rafflesiaspotted, talangensis and villosa.) OK, now, i have some sarracenia rubra seeds or rehderi, and if i were to get 5 nep seeds you would get 6 sarr seeds. 10 would be 12, and so on. Anyways,Right now i cannot have the seeds, as the windowsill is too full. If you would please reserve the seed i could reserve mine. Thx very much.

    Nep seed is notoriously short lived so you kind of have to sow it out fast...

    Oh yeah OOPS lol, well i mean i can take about 10 seeds at the most

    Also, what i meant about that was seeds that ARE safe to be stored in the fridge( the very few ) that could be reserved

    You're more likely to find hybrid seed than pure species seed. Even if you did manage to find 5 (or 10) N. villosa seed, they wouldn't last long on your windowsill, if they germinated at all. And, why are you trading such small amounts? Usually people want more since who knows what might happen to 5 seeds, especially when the storage of the Sarracenia seed is suspect at best.

    It has never really worked out well for "advanced trading" or "reserved trading" since there are all sorts of things that may happen. May I suggest waiting until you are ready to trade before announcing your trade intentions?

    Finally, I can't help myself, but when you say you need Nepenthes seed, does that mean if you don't find any you will die? Nep seed is necessary for your survival?

    My comment was meant about the ultrahighland conditions of a N. villosa.
