    Short notice Giveway 24 hrs - Utricularia pubescens + Microgramma vaccinifolia

    Please read the entire post before signing up.

    Must be a semi active poster, no new people please. Few posts a month is fine so long as you have atleast 50 overall and are posting in other threads than giveaways.

    Continental US only and we do not ship to CA anymore.

    Winners will pay postage of $8 before the 22nd of this month, we will be packing and mailing the morning of the 22nd and need payment via paypal BEFORE the day we are trying to mail them off.

    The weather here is 70s, so please keep YOUR weather in mind. Sending plants to freeze in the mail is just not a good thing. I will not be checking up on weather in your areas.

    Winners will be posted tomorrow around noon, 24 hrs or so from now.

    This will be the first step in tearing down this terrarium, (just a fyi this terrarium had bugs I believed were aphids many years ago, I have not seen any in years and just last month used the "dry ice" pest method on all of my terrariums so make sure you understand and treat these plants accordingly).

    Utricularia pubescens - atleast a 1" X 1" portion growing in ADA aquasoil covered in some moss.

    Im assuming CA stands for California and not Canada, right? If so, it's still really cool of you to host this give away!

    Yep CA is California, they are actually starting to enforce plant shipment laws and without all those fancy nursery certs good luck getting plant materials via mail anymore The last few packages we tried were returned to us after a friendly phone call from CA asking if they could open the box to inspect it. Returning boxes take 2-4 weeks to get back to us.

    Just not worth all the effort, they did say you could drive any (legal) plant material over the state lines and that was just fine. You just can not mail it over.....

    How moist does Microgramma vacciniifolia need conditions to be? (Some ferns which will grow in very moist/humid conditions can also handle/ endure surprisingly dry conditions as well.) Is it an aggressive spreader?

    I only mist that tank once a week at most, it has rooted into a cephalotus type medium and is growing on bark. It seems too not really care too much once it is established.

    It is a runner so it will spread given free reign and no attention. Otherwise it grows slow enough to keep contained with a trimming every few months.
