    Only time will tell. Actually my only intention of ever bidding on it was to relist it this year. Then good ole Andrew jacked the price up!

    lol. I wish I could say I wrote that with the intention of someone clever coming along and catching my witty pun... But since I didn't, all I can say is: Arrrrrgh...

    lol. Actually it's sweat. I just got done running and was cooling down when I saw this post. Don't worry, it might get washed before I mail it to the lucky winner.

    Let's change that. I'll post some of last year's listings and pictures and hopefully that will inspire some of the winners to show us updates on how the plants are doing while also showing the diversity of listings for the new members.

    Here's the first batch of last year's listing. Please remember that this is only a small sampling of items that were generously donated by the Terraforums community. Hopefully this will give you a taste of the quality and diversity of plants offered. There were also many starter kits and other more common plants offered. Truly something for everyone!

    HOT HOT HOT!

    Starting bid, $3 - about 4 oz.

    I pay shipping.

    GO!
    Mmmmm... This was a hot item! (Did you get catch that one, PAK?!)

    Bidding starts at $4.00 buyer pays shipping of $1.00. The seeds will be shipped in padded envelopes to prevent damage.

It has not started making pitchers since it was separated from the mother plant, but has a six-inch-plus leaf span, and is looking good!

    Let's shoot high here. I'll pay shipping if the winning bid is over $40, or the winner can pay shipping if the winning bid is less than $40.

    Remember that all your bids help to SUPPORT THE NASC!

    Good Growing,

    How could we forget the mystery dew?!

    I'll give hints to this mystery dew, but I will not give it's true ID until it is received by the winner. If you can ID this from the description then please don't post it and ruin it for everybody else.

    The mystery dew's typical height is about 6 inches high. I have seen some as high as about 15 inches. The usual variety is all green. I have seen a black variety but I didn't really like it that much. Native to mountainous areas. This dew is very sticky. If you get it on your skin, your skin will remain sticky until you wash it off.

    The mystery dew that you are bidding on is approximately 12 inches high and as big around as an orange.

    This is a very typical dew. Not even remotely rare. Remember, this is for charity, so bid accordingly. If this auction gets above $15 I will throw in a location data D.capillaris. From the ditch beside my house.

    I will pay for shipping if you make a $5 donation to NASC, paid with your auction payment. Otherwise shipping will be $5.
    More coming...

And what's that?? It's not only flowering age but comes with pollinated flowers from other specimen of the same origin!

    In short this plant has:

    At least 5 growing points!
    3 flowers that have been pollinated by other S. rubra ssp. gulfensis Ancestral Form from the same location
    Extensive root system!

    See the pictures for more! Feel free to PM me.

    I pay shipping if bidding reaches $20
    Starting bid is $5



    This next one went for $150.

    This auction is for one nice two-year-old seedling, about 2.5 inches across, in a three-inch pot. I'll pay the shipping if the winning bid is over $30, or the winner can pay for shipping if the winning bid is less than $30.

    SUPPORT THE NASC!!!

    Good growing,

    Bidding starts at $2. I'll pay shipping. PM me here with any questions.

    Some biggies.

If someone will guide me through Photobucket, I will post a pic. Sorry US only.
    I still haven't seen that one come out of TC yet...

This grows open air in my basement in pretty ideal highland conditions. about 52-60 degree nights, 70-82 degree days, with humidity from 50 -90% the vast bulk of the time.





    I pay shipping. Opening bid..... $2.

    PM me with questions.

    Here's the pic of the mystery dew after I wrapped it up to ship. I wonder if he still has it.
