    I have few random things to trade for Nepenthes cuttings or pings

    I am starting my small collection for CPs, and was hoping I could find a few plants that I could not get a hold of online(they were out of stock!!) I don't have much to trade, but Id thought I'd give it a shot to see where it leads...
    I have:
    - 30grams of 90% hatch success Brineshrimp eggs( new in a packet and I only have one)
    - $25 Gift card to Amazon.com(great if you have Prime account for free shipping)
    - $25 Gift card to PetSmart. I won both of these gift card from my Company. Brand new, money value guaranteed.
    - Rooted Leaf cuttings of African Violet Rob's vanilla trail, and Pink mint
    - Bromeliad Neoregelia Zoe (one plant)
    - Bromeliad Cryptanthus(1-se27,1-bivittias major,1-pink starlight,1-snow goose,1-karen,1-carnival de-rio,1-raspberry ice,1-aroura,1-silver streak,1-rainbow).
    - White Rabbits foot fern rooted cuttings
    - 10 Red Tumbling Tom Tomato Seeds
    - 10 Thai Dragon Hot Pepper Seeds(2 sets)
    - 1000 Catnip Seeds
    - 5 Micro Tom Tomato seeds or I have 5 seedlings(3-4" tall) available
    - 10 cuttings of ANACHARIS freshwater stem cuttings(for aquatic turtle tanks)
    - Taiwan Moss for freshwater aquarium. I have 3 portions(2"x2")
    - Christmas Moss for freshwater aquarium. I have 3 portions(2"x2")
    - Fissidens fontanus on small piece of driftwood. 1 portion (2"x2")
    - Pellia Monosolenium tenerum, 2 portions mounted on ceramic tile(2"x2")
    - Round Pellia (subwassertang). very pretty. 3 portions(2"x2")
    - Java moss 3"x3" 1 portion
    - 5 freshwater Red Cherry Shrimps mix of female and male( obviously these cannot ship until weather gets warmer; I have about three portions of them. They ship very very well with little plants to hang onto in USPS small flat rate box.


    My wish list for either cuttings, leaves, or plants as you see fit:
    - Pinguicula 'Pirouette'
    - Pinguicula 'Sethos'
    - Pinguicula 'Titan'
    - Pinguicula jaumavensis
    - Pinguicula 'Florian'
    - Pinguicula esseriana
    - Any variety of Nepenthes ampullaria, and their hybrids
    - D. slackii


    I will be open for trades when they arrive, or later(if they are too small, or in bad shape). So, drop me PM anytime. Thanks!

    LOL! It took a few years to get there.... and aside from the local Lowes and the like, the collection has come from the generous folks from the plant forum. I have never purchased a plant from an online store.

    Pinguicula "Seductora" has not yet been registered as a cultivar. Regardless, just because there are hybrid plants with the same parentage it does not follow that they are identical (the same). It certainly does not automatically qualify them to be considered a registered cultivar, nor does it grant them a grex name, as with orchids or Nepenthes. Contrary to misconceptions concerning cultivars, there is not a grex naming system to record hybrid lineage for Pinguicula.

    Though, officially, since Pinguicula "Seductora" has not been officially registered as a cultivar, the name can be applied to just about any plant that anyone wishes to use the name on. However, once the name is registered, with published description and photographic standard, only other plants that match the description and standard can be considered that cultivar.

    P. laueanea x emarginata is one of my favorites - pretty coloration and easily propagated from leaf cuttings. I find the straight up species to be a challenge but as soon as the more experienced hobbyists have success with crossing them with others, these cultivars are incredibly hardy.

    ohh i see- didn't know there were such thing as officially registered cultivar for hybrids, if they are.. then again, what do I know anything about CPs, besides the fact that I LOVE pink , and I want to have anything that is colored pink- pink flowers, pink tinged leaves... etc etc.
    so I stand corrected!
