    Thanks for the offer! I have a few plants that I'm going to try to get seeds again with. I'm glad you've affirmed that it can be done! What are you interested in?

    The "Three Sister" Sundews are dichogamous meaning the pistils and stamens ripen at different times. Try the "yesterday's anthers on today's stigma" method.

    Excellent advice. It's the same with VFTs to a degree, correct? I've noticed that the stigmas open later.

    You are correct, legally I cannot receive seeds since I do not have the required permits. I am surprised you knew there might be a problem! I will take your encouragement and NAN's advice to try and get some seed.

    Thanks both!



    And RAS, THANKS FOR THE DROSERA TIP! Now I can make broadleaf x alba capensis hybrids and try to get an alba broadleaf plant

    Ian, you could always import seed on my permit and I'll forward the seed to you.

    It doesn't appear to be too difficult to send seed to New Zealand. Seeds that are considered "Basic" under the Biosecurity Classification can be sent without a Phytosanitary Certificate however they must be inspected on entry and tested to be free of weeds, pests, etc. at the importers expense. Drosera capensis is prohibited.

    Thank you SO MUCH for your kind offer. I believe I'm old enough to get my own permit, which is something I should look in to! Last time I tried I couldn't meet the age requirements. It I get anything worked out before then in the way of importing seed, I'll contact you.

    You've always been so kind to me. Thanks.

    P.S. When is the next LACPs at the Huntington? The director of the conservatory owes me some p. gigantea clones (I'm counting on those ). I'd like to come up and meet you again too
