    *chuckle* Yea, I guess I do [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]. I guess it had to happen eventually [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]. I'd better not let my daughter find out I baby the plants more than her. She'd really rub that in.

    You have to wonder what they are thinking. Remember Jeff Foxworthy's "here's your sign!" jokes?

    I got mine yesterday too. Sites #002 and #003. Gorgeous plants. Can't wait for them to get full grown in a few years.[/QUOTE]

    Congratulations sarracenia. Good luck with your new plants.

    Ok, everyone, now I'm posting in the right spot [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I, too, rec'd two plants today. I got 001 and 003. I'm colorblind so I couldn't say for sure if one is more red than the other [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] They do look beautiful though! I'm really amazed. Hopefully I can get some pictures this weekend when I shoot my neps too for another thread.
    So much to be excited about! YAYAYAYAY!

    My 2 and 3 are definitely redder than the 1 pictures posted. They are looking a bit sad, though. The pitchers are pretty dried up on the 3. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    I'll try to get some good pics of them (from an angle that doesn't show the dead pitchers), and post them on the NECPS site sometime soon.

    Pretty robust "seedling"... not quite what i expected! Barry & Co. did some great work.

    Hey Folks,

    I'm not a regular reader of **********, but signed on to see how things are going on it. There's a lot of great discussions!

    Anyway, I'm glad to hear that everyone is getting their Sarracenia alabamensis in the mail, as part of the ICPS conservation program. It was a real effort on the part of many people to get that to work. As it turns out, we had almost exactly the correct number of plants, so I could send plants to everyone who requested them!

    (A little behind the scenes information, 104 AL001, 102 AL002, and 110 AL003 plants were sent out. It took me two hours in the post office alone to have all the postages figured out!)

    Will the ICPS do this again? Maybe. It was A LOT of work. If we see a lot of seed in the seed banks in the next few years with tag information like AL002 x AL002, or AL001 x AL003, then the plan would definitely have been a success. And maybe we'd do it again.

    It would really be great to figure out a way to do this internationally, but CITES regulations really complicate things. I think that next time (if there is a next time), IF we could do things internationally, it might be best to give the non-USA members of the ICPS first pick (if we have greater demand than we have plants).

    In any event, enjoy your plants---I'm glad the ICPS was successful in completing this plan. Now it is your job to prove to us that the effort was worth it!

    Cheers

    Hey Folks,

    Oh, a few more comments on the Sarracenia alabamensis we shipped. I'm hearing from some folks that the pitchers were a little crisped. Remember that we did NOT clean these plants up in any way before we sent them. So you might be seeing dead pitchers on the plant from last season. All that's important is that you baby the plants so the rhizome is still alive. I've shipped a lot of Sarracenia in my day and I'm pretty confident that nearly all those plants will live.

    Second, don't read too much into the size of the plants. In the wild, the plants are rather similar in size. It is a big mystery how the AL001, AL002, and AL003 plants will be in cultivation. And of course, since everyone got a different seedling, some plants may be more vigorous than others.

    I'll tell you, though, having had the honor of visiting AL001, AL002, and AL003 (as well as several other sites) that these plants are BEAUTIFUL in the wild. Try to have unrealistic expectations for these plants---you'll find that even those are exceeded!

    As a final note: we did manage to send off nearly all the AL001, AL002, AL003 plants. So if you missed out on this program, look for seeds in the seedbank, or divisions from your friends. We do not have any more!

    Cheers
