    Rebuilding a stolen collection!

    The title says it all! I traded with some of you last year and built an amazing collection of flytrap cultivars. I moved to Indiana in early August, left the plants on a private patio, and returned a week later to find that someone stole everything that was there. Fortunately, I was out of town bringing back the rest of my collection, which is now stored safely in secure greenhouses on the Purdue University campus. The plants are being used to produce a series of documentaries.

    So I need help relocating some of those fly trap cultivars. I have about a dozen Dionea muscipula 'King Henry' plants just waking up from dormancy. I'm sorting through the collection of sarracenia now and will likely have something to trade there, as well.

    Help!

    This is terrible to hear about. Nothing more worthless than a thief. I wish I could help you, but I don't choose to grow VFT cultivars. Good luck with rebuilding your collection though.

    SEE.. it happens! So I'm not just being paranoid.
    Sorry to hear about your loss.
    I'm not a big VFT person, but I've got a couple clumps of sawtooth seedlings here.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    Thanks Lois! Some of those plants originally came from you.

    Sad thing is, when someone steals these plants from a collector we pretty much know what's going to happen to them. I had all of those fly traps and a huge, beautiful psittacina that I had grown from seed. Wonder how long they lasted...

    If interested I have extra Petite Dragon, Bohemian Garnet, and Big Mouth if those are ones you'd need. All are very small though, and just coming out of dormancy.
