    *****Plants sent - email notifications sent - offer over****
    Gave away plants to over 30 people...
    Any additional plants will be offered in the NASC auction.
    All the best,
    Ron
    ***********************************************
    What’s available:

    Drosera filiformis ssp. filiformis – hibernacula starting to sprout – lots
    Sarracenia purpurea – approx. 5 small plants (probably ssp. venosa)
    Drosera rotundifolia (noticed a few here & there – do not count on receiving any)

    For explanation on how these plants became available – see bottom of post.

    This is not 1st come / 1st served (do not just rush to respond) - please read instructions below.

    Please note that the peat/soil with the plants WILL absolutely contain seeds from various local weed species (& possibly some CP).

    Based on the numbers of D. filiformis that I see in the bog, I will probably be able to give plants to 10 people (& maybe more). I will try to include at least 5 hibernacula with each order.

    My return address will be on the box and the postage I paid will be on the box (probably $3.85) – please send compensation for postage via return mail.

    USA only. As usual – education uses will have priority.

    If interested:
    - email me @ RL7836@earthlink.net
    - include the following in the email:
    your mailing address
    what you want:
    S. purpurea (only)
    D. filiformis (only)
    Both (but will accept one if other is all gone)
    Both only (skip it if I can’t have both)

    I will send out boxes next weekend via priority mail & probably will not respond to recipients / non-recipients before that time – unless there are questions. If you have any questions, please send them to my email address since I most likely will not be able to check this forum or my PMs during the week.

    All the best,
    Ron

    Situation / circumstances that made these plants available:

    Approximately 10 yrs ago, I made an in-ground CP bog. However, after a few years, I realized that I had screwed up. I had:
    - installed it mid-summer and not allowed for the fact that the spring/fall sun is significantly lower in the southern sky (translation: bog is shaded except in mid-summer)
    - did not allow for the fact that nearby trees are still in significant growth mode (translation: bog is becoming more shaded each year)
    - used cheap polyethylene plastic for liner
    - did not allow for rodents chewing through liner
    I realized my mistakes but knowing that we planned to relocate out of NJ in a few years, decided to not create a new bog. Approximately 2-4 years ago, I gave away the last remaining plants in the bog. Yesterday, I looked at the bog remnants and found that under all of the grass and weeds that had taken over the last few summers, a number of Drosera had evidently survived / prospered – along w/ a few S. purpurea that I had originally overlooked.
    All the best,
    Ron
