    Thumbs up Sarracenia Pollen...have and want :)

    Hey friends,

    I've heard that you can pollinate sarracenia with pollen that has been stored.

    Right now I've got:

    S. flava var. maxima (REALLY GOOD SPECIMIEN)
    S. purpurea venosa
    S. flava var. rubricopora
    S. flava var. flava (very nice)*
    S. flava var. rugelli
    S. flava var. ornata
    S. alata --greene co. Missisippi*
    S. oreophylla "sand mountain"
    S. leucophylla*
    S. hybrids.

    I would be looking for Pure sarracenia pollen to cross with the species WITHOUT an astrix...that is, I'm looking for the same species and variety.

    I will trade pollen for future seeds also, if they fail, something else will be required.

    I'm also looking for another p. planifolia. My P. cruela are flowering, and I may have seed once I figure out how to pollinate them. Any help?

    Anyway, I'd like a pair for my lone planifolia and will trade other plants for one.

    Just interested in getting quality seed for myself and others,

    Just watch your pollen from the Oreo, it is a part of an endangered species and therefore subject to ESA/CITES. I got hell last year for seeds here on the forum, even though they were open pollination and probably hybrids. You probably know this stuff, but just thought I'd mention it just in case. If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will correct this.

    Hmmm. I actually never thought about this. I know seeds and plants are restricted; but pollen?

    It is very possible, and I'm going to have a good laugh if it's true.

    CITES appendix I covers plants and all parts including seed and pollen. No trading, exchange or selling across state lines as per the Endangered Species Act. Gifts are ok as long as you are not getting anything back in exchange.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    So there you go, folks: no S. oreophylla pollen over state lines.

    Thanks, NaN.
