    Up for Grabs: 4x VFTs; 1x Sarracenia "Mardi Gras"

    Hey everyone!

    I just divided up a typical VFT that is coming out of a light dormancy and discovered that I had not one but six of them! So I'm putting four of them up for trade. They range from pretty big to pretty small - see the pic below. Whoever fills their name in first on the list below will get the largest VFT, the second person will get the second largest, etc. Unless of course you request a smaller one...



    VFTs:
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    And here's my Sarracenia "Mardi Gras." It's coming out of a light dormancy - you can see the mature pitchers are brown and crispy but there's new growth coming out of the crown.





    I just love this plant, but I need to part ways with it. I just don't have the right conditions to take care of it (small Brooklyn apartment) and I fear I might lose it if I try to put it through another dormancy. And with Mardi Gras right around the corner, I figured this would be a good time to find it a new home!

    Please post or PM me if you're interested in the Sarr.

    In exchange, I'm looking for a number of things, if you think the trade is fair:
    N. spectabilis x aristolochioides, or some other Nep with nice ornate pitchers that isn't picky about conditions
    D. prolifera
    D. paradoxa
    Or some cool tropical or subtropical sundew, ping, or maybe a nifty type of VFT that you don't see in my grow list.

    Happy trading!

    Would you trade a D. adelae for the Sarracenia? Or would you like anything on my grow list for it just let my know what you want and my grow list is in my signature so click it and look at it.


    [Edit: Nomenclature adjustment - genus names are always written with an initial capital letter, the second part of species names are always written in all lower-case letters.]

    Not sure D. adelae alone for the Sarr would be entirely fair - it's not exactly the most common hybrid. PM me and we can figure something out.

    It's just been brought to my attention that my offer for typical VFTs might not have been entirely 'legal' by forum rules--since flytrapshop.com sells these things. I'm going to PM a mod and seek some advice. Meanwhile, I'm holding those last two VFTs. I apologize in advance to the mods and prospective traders, but I'll keep everyone posted if it turns out that this offer is kosher.

    OK, just heard back from Andrew - I'm all clear for continuing with this offer. Although please note that I have removed D. adelae from my 'want' list on this thread. They're available on flytrapshop.com. If I want one, I will give the good folks at FTS.com my business
