Although this is a freebie giveaway, it's not exactly free ....
I have a potbound specimen of S. rubra ssp alabamensis (or S. alabamensis - my code 51C) containing ~20-50 growthpoints (complete guess - but the pot is way over-full and distorted). I received this plant several years ago as a gift from a grower in VA who received it from Don Schnell. I will send this plant via USPS Priority mail (on my dime) to the winner of this giveaway with the following conditions:
- the recipient agrees to share a division with a minimum of 3 different people within 8 months
- the recipients of these 3 divisions are posted on Terra (screen names are fine) in this (or another) thread
Assuming that a division fits into a small flat rate box, the cost would be $16.05** ($5.35 times three).
In summary, for an approximate commitment of $16**, the winner will receive a very large, adult, flowering specimen of S. rubra ssp alabamensis (with a great pedigree).
If you are interested in participating (& agree to above conditions):
- Pick and post a number between 1-100, I'll use a random number generator to select the winner (random.org). 1st matching number wins (ie: not the closest to the 1st number - but 1st actual match)
- Only one number please....
- In the case of repeat numbers.... the earlier poster takes it.
- USA only
- special thanks to Av for fine-tuning a robust selection process
** assumes divisions are mailed, they could also be shared at club meetings, etc. (but names still need to be posted)
Contest ends Monday, April 9th at 9:00pm ET... one contest, one winner.
