    S. Jonesii (LIVE) Giveaway

    Yes, that's right. free. shipping and all.

    I will do a drawing based on certain criteria

    1. have you (honestly) been growing sarrs for 2 years?
    2. Do you own any of the three extremely endangered sarrs (Jonesii, alabemensis, oreophilia.) If so, which
    3. do you realize how rare this plant is, even in cultivation?
    4. Why do you think you deserve this plant?

    I will definatly be giving away 2, possibly 3. all are divisions that should flower within the next year or so.

    Mods: any concerns with such a giveaway? I know that this is a debated issue as to how this giveaway process goes.

    PS.: Just to add, he's paying for shipping and everything. That way it's perfectly legal.

    Not here to enter for one, just comment.

    Just a suggestion - be a super guy and include a detailed letter explaining how the plant came to you, how it was propagated and that you gave it freely as a gift. I have an S. oreophila that came from a forumer here that has apparently since fallen out of the hobby, and if I ever want to start a nursery I'll have to give it away or do a lot of jumping through hoops to prove that it came into my possession legally. Since I got it free, I suppose easy come easy go, but it would bug me less if it weren't so rare. I'd rather keep mine and give away divisions of it.
    Otherwise, awesome offer. If I did a better job of collecting and tracking location data on my plants I might enter for this, but as it is I've got plenty with one. Thanks for getting this plant on more growlists!

    Yes, I have a S. oreophila "Alabama" clone that I obtained from a grower here in California.

    Yes, I do.

    First, I admire the plant's aesthetic appeal (as with almost all Sarrs). I don't have many Sarrs, but I have not lost any that I have purchased/acquired. If it divides I could also pass on divisions, spreading the plant to others.


    Thanks so much for offering!

    Wow, a rare giveaway indeed...

    1. have you (honestly) been growing sarrs for 2 years?
    Honestly, I've only been growing sarrs for 1 year and 7 months. That rounds up to 2 years, right?

    2. Do you own any of the three extremely endangered sarrs (Jonesii, alabemensis, oreophilia.) If so, which
    I have a S. oreophila x alata. That's the closest I've got to an extremely endangered sarr.

    3. do you realize how rare this plant is, even in cultivation?
    In the wild, it's virtually extinct. In cultivation, it's pretty hard to come by, and cannot be legally sold or traded across state lines.

    4. Why do you think you deserve this plant?
    I've been a mostly good boy this year, Santa, I mean Steven. Plus I'll take good care of it. I provide plenty of sunlight, r/o water, and lfs for my sarrs.

    Thanks for your most generous offer,
    raccoon city

    1. have you (honestly) been growing sarrs for 2 years?
    Yes, for about 10 years

    2. Do you own any of the three extremely endangered sarrs (Jonesii, alabemensis, oreophilia.) If so, which
    I have an oreophilia from Alabama

    3. do you realize how rare this plant is, even in cultivation?
    Most definitely, yes!

    4. Why do you think you deserve this plant?
    I'm good at growing sars. I live in Mississippi, which is the perfect natural habitat for them, so I don't have to worry about what to do with them in the winter or anything like that. You can see threads where I have posted my pics of my plants, they are all nice and big and healthy. Very easy to grow for me, and I really enjoy them.
