    Need A little help

    So many friends have said if I wanted to grow again to give a holler when I was ready that I thought I would put this here. I wish I could put it in the trade forum, but I really have nothing to offer yet except promises to make it up when I can.

    I have some new friends in South Africa and Australia that will be sending me seeds over their growing season and I need to have something to compensate them for. A lot of you know my sharing ethic, but it is difficult to share what you no longer have. I want to increase the number of Drosera species in South Africa now that I have contacts there. Believe it or not, there is limited interest in SAF, and very few species available to collectors there of non endemic species. Please help me change this!

    I lost my collection in 2005 when I was bed bound for most of that year, but prior to this I sent thousands of seed packs, gemmae and plants worldwide. I never would take a cent for doing it, so I hope I have good karma now!

    I am hunting all and any Drosera seed, no matter how common, and also interested in Utricularia/ My current net worth is ten dollars and seventy five cents so I can't even offer a SASE, but I WILL remember anyone's generosity, and will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today!

    I hope to grow some plants during next growing season. I can no longer afford to overwinter them, and anything I grow will be sent to good homes at season's end. Sharing this material and increasing the availability of rare species is the heart and soul of me. I need to do this. If you know of anyone sympathetic to the Cause, please pass on my request.
    Thank you in advance for any assistance!

    Thank you in advance for any assistance!

    Hi Tamlin, I know of your generosity it's legendary!
    Anyway, Dr. Matt Opel of UCONN specilizes in South African plants and is a member of the NECPS... might be a hike for you, but maybe you could make the show and meet him unless you already know him.

    In the meantime, I could offer a larger-than-small Regia for you, sent free of charge. Roots are probably pretty big actually... originates from a very well-known Californian grower who literaly wrote-the-book.

    I also have a seed packet I never got around to of Bain's Kloof Regia. It's like a year old, think it's still good?

    Quogue my friend.

    Very kind of you to offer plants but I must decline any plants other than Utric's although I would surely love to grow that D. regia!! The seed is most welcome though. Be sure to let me know what you desire and we'll see what happens! Thanks again my friend!

    I have some Byblis liniflora seeds I could send your way. Not really asking for anything in return, but I am always taking donations!

    Hi Tamlin,

    I have a pretty large seed stash at the moment. I'll go through and see what I have over the next couple of days. What Utricularia are you interested in? I may have some to spare.

    quogue - The regia seed are most likely still good. I bought some several months back and have been keeping them in the fridge. They have to be close to the year mark by now. I recently put a few into TC, to my surprise I have a couple germinating.

    I've been meaning to get a package out to you. It's just a matter of doing it. I have to overcome my inertia and terminal lethargy. Despondent I suppose over health insurance issues - even the new laws don't help much if you still can't afford the premiums or have to wait 6-8 months.
