    Nepenthes seeds

    I have one lot of hybrid Nepenthes seed to give to someone: a cross of my N. "pyriformis"* X N. tenuis.

    The seed parent:

    The pollen parent:

    How do you qualify? If you have been the recipient of any of my giveaways in the past 2 months, you do not qualify. You must have prior experience growing Nepenthes from seed, and by that I mean you must have sufficient experience to have raised plants to adulthood. The act of simply germinating the seeds to the cotyledon stage does not count. Third, you must give something away to the community in return. I expect you to offer something interesting than D. capensis seed or the like, and you must conduct the giveaway in the next 14 days. "I will hopefully have plants of *fill in the blank* in the next few months!" does not count either. I will select the first person I feel qualifies.

    *indicates that pyrifomis is its presumed ID, not confirmed in any way. It was sold to me as N. inermis from seed, but clearly shows N. talangensis properties.

    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Nope, sorry. I don't believe you meet the criteria for condition #2 yet either.

    Sadness, oh well. With such pretty parents the offspring are bound to be beautiful

    I'd love to try some more Nep seeds but I may or may not meet the requirements, I'll leave my 2 cents and you can figure it out.

    I have only had success with 2 Nep species to pitchers from seed so far, so not a lot.

    We try really hard not to mail any plants out in the hot TX summer, but I have a good giveaway history so it is up to you if that buys me some extra time to run the giveaway. Unless things outgrow there living space too much we won't be doing any more shipping until mid late Sep or so.
