Prompted once again by the generosity of some members of the CP community, I have decided to do another giveaway; two hybrid Nepenthes seedlings, approximately 2.5 years old, from crosses I made. I will pay for shipping myself, so this is a total freebie. How to qualify?
1) Post in this thread a reciprocal offer you can extend to TF membership. Please make an effort to offer something beyond the standard D. capensis seeds and the like. (Nothing wrong with D. capensis, of course, but try to offer something that isn't given away almost weekly. It doesn't have to be a CP even.) Whatever you offer, it must be available to give away NOW, not weeks or months from now.
2) If you have received anything from me in a previous giveaway, then please don't sign up for this one -- give other people a chance, please.
The first hybrid is a cross of a N. maxima hybrid and a N. fusca hybrid, their exact parentage is unknown. These will likely mature to be slender-pitchered types with greenish bodies with red/brown markings, and dark peristomes. They will be easy plants to grow, tolerant of a range of conditions, and quite attractive.
I will select one of the seedlings from this group:
The second seedling will be selected from a cross of N. ventricosa X (thorellii X aristolochoides). These will likely be more colorful - in the red range - and will also be very easy to grow. This is what they look like:
Both of these crosses will be suitable for highland/intermediate growing conditions, but probably not suitable for true lowland growing.
I will select a winner as soon as I see an offer I feel qualifies for this giveaway. I suspect this doesn't need saying, but this offer is for US residents only. Thanks for understanding.
