    Hi All

    The NASC Auction is up and running! Its going very well. There are some GREAT plant offerings up. Check it out. And don't forget that new items are listed every day...and that "good stuff" is on the last page too. Look through ALL the pages.

    Although the auction is going well, we need more donations! If you have any spare plants/seeds sitting around (or just anything interesting), PLEASE consider donating to a very worthy cause.

    Remember, as NASC advances closer to its goals, this will eventually mean more Sarracenia available to us all and for less cost. As we propagate both common and rare plants placed into the conservancy, these will become available to the public at lower prices in order to discourage poaching for wild-grown plants. We will HAVE those wild-grown plants in our conservation program! One seed cap can produce hundreds of plants, so imagine how many plants will be under the auspices of our regional growers!

    So this is something that will, in time, benefit everyone...and generations to come who will still be able to enjoy these awsome plants.

    As Copper said, "Dig deep" and donate!

    We thank all of you who have already generously donated some great items!

    I hope some of you are holding back to make the second week of the auction interesting. We have 10 more days to go. I hope we can make it to at least 6 pages of listings. That would beat last year's five pages.

    Thank you all!

    This auction is very frustrating for those of us who can't bid. So many plants I'd love to buy..... but can't

    I know...I know. I really wish everyone could participate. All the import laws make it difficult for non-US folks. I know they exist for a good reason but it sure would be nice if shipping plants worldwide were easier.

    And I know that not having a lot of money is a problem too. I'm sure I'll be outbid on everything I want. But its for a good cause so I can't be too grumpy. I'm still gonna try though.

    @Sheila & Zak: If it's any consolation, I know how you feel. There's been many a time I checked out the CPUK auction forum and saw something I would have liked to have. Oh well...
