The more detailed and organized growers(I am on the opposite spectrum.. usually maintain a grow list and sometimes a trade list.
A grow list is simply a list of all the species you grow(in this case all the cp you are currently growing).
A trade list is a list of extra plants you have from your grow list that you are willing to trade for plants you don't have.
I wish I was not such a lazy slob, and would keep better records of my plants and such. I remember when I had a Royal Red VFT and a Akai Ryu VFT in the same tank with no tag and thought ("I will be able to tell them apart"). Yeah right.

Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

YOU! Outta my gene pool!
Well Tony! *Thank you for sharing that with me. *Regardless of the age of those comments, I would be of the opinion the unorthodox practices continue to this day and will continue until at such point in time as the individual is 6' under. Such a lucrative business and he is deriving substantial benefits by being rewarded with not only reduced overhead for his business which results in a higher profit but with a substantially reduced risk of being nailed criminally. Do you realize how difficult it would be to prosecute a guy like this? *It's business as usual for the morally bankrupt. Oh, I have no doubt the owner has become more discreet in his solicitation of "producers". I would even go so far as to take a guess his 1099's are issued to minors and/or many of his "transactions" are cash. *These types often seem to exploit minors and those in need of quick cash such as substance abusers. Sad reality is this may never catch up with him. *I am a member of a local gardening club. *There are a few members who are waiting to see how I do with CPs before they jump in. *I can assure you, I will see to it that a link to this thread is shared with them. *That will be two more people who will not be purchasing anything from that nursery. *Not much more I can do as I don't have contacts in the CP world. I will share with you that I had placed an order with him for next spring and that I was to have called him back with the final totals. That will not be happening as I would much prefer to spit in his face right about now.
Hello Griffin, a grow list... *why that won't be hard at all for me. I have 4 different Sarracenias; flava, minor, leuco x oreo, and purpurea. *I think I will go out tomorrow morning and take close up digital images of them and save the pictures so I don't end up wondering which tall pitcher was which next spring. I know I won't be able to tell the 3 tall ones apart without a tag or a label or something to stimulate neural cell activity in my noggin. *I've been slightly brain dead lately.
I'm sorry, I missed this post until now. Some people are computer savvy enough to use their own websites to generate their grow list. I am not. Several others of us joined CPUK and compiled a grow list there. Then they imported it to their profile signature. That is what I did - with much help. I think i can actually help ya with that one!Originally Posted by [b
I've had great luck with Doug and Vivi Rowland in the past 1995.
(Bought my Carnivorous Plants of Australia Vol 1+2 from them)
Nearly all the seeds I purchased germinated for me. They specialize primarily in succulents and cacti but do have a fair selection of CP's
They are in the U.K.
The sad thing about Peter Paul's is that they are quite frank about their field collection, and it is all perfectly legal! I was offered 50 cents a head for Sarracenia seed pods when I visited there back in the 70's when I told him I had access to Sphagnum bogs in my area. Since S. purpurea is not endangered or protected there is no crime being committed other than one of ethics. Needless to say, I boycott this dealer.
If you would like a selection of Drosera seed send me a email with your interests and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to get you going.

Hello Tamlin, Thank you very much for your very kind offer of seed. *Two men are sending us sundew plants for the school which will be instant gratification for the kids and one man is sending a VFT. *One of the men is including seed for D. filiformis. A young gentleman here in the forums is sending us seed for D. capensis. *I would love for you to pick one pack of seed for me to take to the school to let the kids try to germinate along with the other seed being sent. *Hardy forms of sundew would be preferable. Is one pack ok?
Hi Kirk, I looked at your link and I will definitely try them for myself here at home. *Which tall pitchers would you recommend? *Please pick three that you had success with that are not tropicals for me and I will order them. *
And Jim... here is my grow list for here at the house for me personally: S. flava, S. minor, S. leuco x oreo, and S. purpurea. How'd I do?
Hmm, all sarracenias - excellent start [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]Originally Posted by [b
