I have some hybrid Nepenthes seeds to give away to a couple TF members. This morning I harvested several seed pods of N. Ventrata X (inermis X bongso) and I will package up at least two lots of these seeds and donate them to members. I will give these seeds gratis, but I have one requirement: the recipient must offer something to the community in exchange, and their offering must also be given free of charge*. I regard the "pay it forward" principle in communities to be an important one which deserves fostering. I will choose two or three of the requests once I see what folks have to offer in donation. This offer is for North American members only, sorry. I'm not interested in shipping seeds out of the country.
Here are the two parents of the cross:
N. inermis X bongso
It is unlikely that this cross will produce award winning progeny, but they are going to be easy to grow, generous with pitchers, and potentially very dark and richly colored. If all you want is experience growing Nepenthes from seed, these should be worth your time and effort. So, what will you offer other TF members in exchange for some seeds? :-)
*if you are offering something that will incur a significant shipping charge, you can request reimbursement for the shipping, but the item itself must be free.
