Up for grabs here are Darlingtonia from my first batch of seed planted winter '05 (I think.) Many of the original-growth rosettes are from pots I planted in live sphagnum which were subsequently smothered for a few years and therefore may still be somewhat dwarfed, but all the plants I intend to send out will have adult-shaped pitchers even if they still appear small. I also have stolon cuttings from my most vigorous seed-grown individuals (I'm holding on to the original rosettes of these for sentimental and other obvious reasons.) Because these plants are in a way my babies, I will give preference to growers with proven track records or favorable climates when considering offers - sorry to discriminate. If you're uncertain but enthusiastic, I still want to hear from you.
According to some, seed-grown Darlingtonia tend to have greater vigor and durability when compared to TC or death-cube individuals, which makes sense to me from a botany/horticultural standpoint. However, I'm spoiled by my locality, so all I can say for sure is that these little guys have been real champs even in midsummer heat waves. They are proven growers both in sub-par light and excessive heat, but for the past year they've been in ideal full-sun conditions and are happy and beautifully colored as a result. In the past I've had a couple bounce back quickly from drying out in a tiny pot and being toasted ghost-white, and I've never heard of such a miraculous recovery with other cobras. I was absolutely sure they were a loss when I first discovered them, but a few days soaking up to their crown brought them right back. I've since begun to suspect that my seed may have been from some exceptionally tough parents. I can provide information on the seed source upon request if you wish to investigate their lineage.
Also available are two moderately large rhizome divisions of a healthy plant from a reputable nursery, separated over a year ago - maybe two years but I'm a little fuzzy on that particular detail. Last year's growth had leaves about six inches in length, but the mother plant was much larger (upwards of a foot tall/~16" long) before division so I expect them to jump up in size this season if treated well. It attempted to flower two or three years ago but I messed it up before the flower matured. They're both rootstock sections so it's likely that they have multiple growth points by now; I'll verify that detail before trading.
Smaller individuals may require a bit of TLC to get established in hotter/drier climates. Alternately they can be grown out next to highland Nepenthes with a little research and consideration. In order to maximize your chances of success, I will provide sufficient live Sphagnum cuttings to start a culture in a five-inch pot with all plants, but you will be responsible for providing proper media. (I recommend a peat-based mix using lava rock or perhaps hydroton for aeration/drainage; no sympathy if you botch the substrate. These are healthy plants but not superheroes.) If you're willing to pay shipping I am open to mailing them potted, but these are in half-gallon pots so it will not by any means be cheap.
Pics to follow once I have a chance to get outside/dig around my archives for previous years.
WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR:
I'll just copy-and-paste from my N. alata x maxima post; the same reasoning applies here. I absolutely will not trade these for a larger quantity of common plants. I appreciate such offers, and apologize for not being able to entertain them, but I simply do not have the means to take on much more at this time. Valuable/rare plants, larger/vining Nepenthes that I can use for future clones, or temperate plants appropriate for cold and wet Pacific NW winters are preferred.
Alternately, growing equipment, computer/electronics parts, RC toys, CP books, hard-to-find videogames, etc. may pique my interest. Being that my major constraints are time and growing space, I can be much more flexible on non-plant offers. No promises, but I may also be persuaded to trade for proportionate groups of common Mexi-Pings or other characteristically small species, though only on the condition that you can hold your side of the trade until a later date when I have space and materials to pot up new additions to my collection - in such situations I'm happy to advance you my plants so long as I recognize you to be a reliable and trustworthy part of the community.
If you PM me with an offer, please clearly state what you're looking for in the title to help me stay organized.
