***** Giveaway closed *****
Giveaway feedback still open (ie: feedback on seed germination, pics of plants, etc)
This past spring a fellow TF'er* & I had some conversations about sharing pollen so that we could get potentially un-selfed seed**. Due to the timing of our plant's flowers, the pollen-sharing could only be one way - from him to me. He freely sent me a pack of pollen from his plant which I used on two flowers when they opened. I just finished harvesting the filled-to-the-brim seedpods. In the spirit of TF sharing, I will give away several packets of this seed.
- In accordance with ESA / CITES, This is a totally free giveaway. I will cover all expenses.
- Sarracenia oreophila is on the ESA / CITES list. Please read the following links before replying:
- both parents are Sarracenia oreophila from Sand Mountain, AL**
- I don't know how many packets will be given away, but the 1st round (& possibly the last) will be for 6 packets of ~30 seeds.
- after ~5-7 days, I will randomly select 6 names from the list of participants and send them a PM. This PM will include the email address to which they should send me their name & mailing address. Notice that this is not 1st come, 1st served - no major rush required.
- please only enter if you intend to plant the seeds & grow them yourself.
- a few requests to those who receive seed:
--- provide feedback on the packaging (any crushed seed, etc)
--- share annual (roughly) pics of plants (until flowering age) on TF
--- donate at least one of your plants (or a division) to someone within 5 years.
- if you have read this entire post (including linked pages), understand all conditions & caveats and agree with the conditions - add your TF name to a list on the next post (1st responder starts list).
- USA only - sorry but these seeds can't be shipped to other countries without the resolution of major impediments.
* - TF'er will remain anonymous unless he/she decides to out himself (we just never discussed details like this - or hardly any details - really)
** - both plants are S. oreophila - Sand Mountain, AL and we're assuming that they are not the same clone. However, since we don't know all the details from each owner traced back to the bog, there is some chance that the plants are indeed the same clone (although it's probably quite unlikely). My plant is reasonably unimpressive from a color perspective (pics in growlist) but is extremely robust and a beast of a plant.
