    Nepenthes seeds for TF members

    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. Ventrata.

    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.

    Awesome offer Paul. Love the pay it foward requirement.
    I give away plants randomly, but I will wait to see if someone else jumps on this. Don't want to take the opportunity away from someone who hasn't grown from seed before.

    I will be giving away N. Ventricosa rooted cuttings in a few weeks. It's not much but I'm new to CPs. Would I qualify?

    I can offer any number of the following seeds that I should have coming soon:
    D. spatulata 'Tamlin'
    D intermedia Easton, MA
    D. sp. Lantau Island
    D. dielsiana
    Dionaea muscipula (typical variety, though one parent regularly produced huge traps)
    Possibly D. sessilifolia
    And I have small amounts of seeds from recent crosses I've made, like D. intermedia x spatulata Tamlin, D. capillaris Long Arm x Tamlin, etc.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
