    Nepenthes Seed Pods for Trade (USA Only)

    I recently harvested the seed pods from my N. ventricosa x talangensis. They were pollinated with N. x 'Melvino' pollen... So the cross is N. (ventricosa x talangensis) x (spathulata x bongso) harvested from my greenhouse 1/26/14...

    My specific N. ventricosa x talangensis: http://i46.tinypic.com/16j3429.jpg
    N. x 'Melvino' exactly resembling mine: http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g3...3/DSCF1615.jpg





    What I'm interested in:

    - Freshwater aquarium plants (anything cool or colorful, baby tears, offer me anything) <-- Very interested
    - Nepenthes (highland/intermediate, any size, bigger = more pods)
    - Slipper orchids (or anything cool/unusual)
    - Other Nepenthes seeds or seedlings
    - Freshwater fish (as long as you're in a warmer climate and can ship)
    - Small freshwater shrimp (not feeders)
    - Live fish food cultures
    - Anything else you have to offer, give it a shot

    Have you verified that there are viable embryos in those pods? Something you might want to check before you send out loads of seed. Two out if every three crosses I've made had no viable seeds inside the pods.

    Yeah, I just opened two of the pods and most of the seeds have dark bumps around the center. On some it is less apparent, but there is still a raised/slightly-bulging area.

    Still up for offer -- I'd like to ship them out by the end of February at latest so that they're as viable as possible.

    Many pods still available. Still mainly interested in aquatic plants, preferably ones that can be planted in the substrate (not floating).
