    Need some assistance locating some plants.

    Hello everyone!

    Chris here, I have not posted in a while, if you do not remember me I was the guy who did the Carnivora Gardinum timelapse video for carnivorous plants.

    I have a new project that I am working on, and I am trying to track down two types of plants. I am looking for 6 - 8 of each plant.

    Drosera neocaledonica
    Nepenthes vieillardii

    I am willing to pay. I do not need them forever, just 6-8 months or as long as needed to get the footage. Once I am done with filming I would be happy to send them back to you.
    I do have some experience keeping these alive, I have a drosera and a nepethene that i have kept alive and happy for over a year

    Unfortunately I cannot give any other details of this project, but I am hoping somebody on here might know somebody who has some of these wonderful plants!

    -Chris

    You may want to try one of the European vendors. Neither of those species are very common in the U.S.

    Yeah, I would definitely look into the European vendors. Sometimes there's group orders that you can jump on to reduce the import fees.

    Just as a note, care for different species of Nepenthes and Drosera can be very different from others in the genus, and these two aren't the easiest. Do lots of homework before you buy/lend.

    D. neocaledonica is actually relatively easy to care for, in my experience. Sadly, mine are not yet large enough to propagate, so can't help out there yet....
    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.

    Thank you everyone.
    if worst comes to worst I'm sure the production team would sport for the cost to import from overseas, but it would certainly be ideal to find some in the US.

    hcarlton I am actually located in Littleton colorado, just south west of you.

    The sundews are my primary concern for locating. I have seen lots of images of Nepenthes vieillardii, that could probably be substituted as there are many that are extremely similar looking, I would suspect it would take a very trained eye to notice. The sundews on the other hand, i have not seen anything that could fill in for it. I gotta say, the Drosera neocaledonica is about the cutest little thing i have seen.

    You might post a 'looking to buy' thread here: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/fo...Looking-to-buy With a given price for these species maybe they would be easier to locate?

    I wish you luck. Your video was very enjoyable.

    Hey Chronos, we're having a Colorado Carnivorous Plant Society meeting on May 23 at Jeremiah's greenhouse in Colorado Springs.

    bluemax/Chronos- remember that the looking to buy section is only for thank you members... I've allowed this out of the box situation of looking to rent plants since it is an interesting project and I enjoyed his last, but he still doesn't have necessary permissions to post in that forum.

    Good luck on your hunt!
