    Hi all,
    I have had a pretty good harvest of D. intermedia seed of late and would be happy to send them to anyone who might be interested. I am prepared to give them away for free, but if you have some spare seed of something else you might be kind enough to trade, I would be most happy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] This notice is mainly for Singaporeans, but it is open to guys elsewhere too.

    Is it the tropical intermedia?
    Do you mind sending it to sweden?
    I have some rotundifolia seeds and maybe some leaf cuttings soon of other droseras if you want any of them?
    Need all the experience I can get...

    Hi TyFone,
    I don't know if they are tropical. All I know is that they grow pretty well in our tropical climate in Singapore. The 'ancestral' stock came from Cresco in Holland. After I got those first pots I have been growing them to the Nth generation through the seeds I collect. I don't about other people here, but I kinda treat them like annuals. Once they start to decline I don't bother much about them, but simply move on to start a new batch. I'll be happy to send them to you, no problem.

    Never tried rotundifolia seed before ... sure why not? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I've never had luck with leaf cuttings, so I think you would be kinder to your plants if you didn't give me any for their sake [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] If you have any Byblis seed, that'll be great too.

    Best,

    Ok great [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    Then ill send you seeds. Im sorry i dont have byblis. But ill have some D.anglica seeds soon(hopefully) if you are interested?

    Just as you know the seeds need stratisfaction to germinate.
    The seeds need frost.

    Dosent your intermedia need that?

    Hi Jimmie,

    Ok thanks, man. I don't think my D. intermedia needs to be stratified ... but I could be wrong. (My friends in Singapore will be able to help me out here. It grows pretty well here and chances are if they have these plants they are derived from the same parent batch from Holland.) I think there will be enough of what I send you for you to experiment. If memory serves, there were occasions in the past where I was slow to collect the seeds and they just sprouted up in other pots.

    By frost, you mean how cold? Freezer type of cold or refrigerator? Oh yeah, I need your mailing address. If you don't feel comfortable putting it here, just PM me.

    Regards,

    I think by 'frost' he means 'freezer' like cold as that is usually where ice is made. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Ok thanks, Jason. Though I think I have been able to germinate sarracenia in the past without resorting to that. But if that is really what Jimmie meant by frost, then I am pretty sure the D. intermedia we grow here don't need that. On the other hand, if it is a matter of keeping the seed for a short while in the refrigerator, then that is another matter. Off hand, I can't tell one way or the other.
