    Larry,

    My compliments on successfully distributing this seed! It is great to see *something* has come from the numerous seed packs I have sent out. I will probably get seed from some additional Brazillian species this season: D. montana var tomentosa, D. sp Emas, D. graminifolia "Caracca", D. villosa (appears to be the type&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img], D. capillaris Praia do Imbe, and possibly D. communis and D. kaieteurensis if the plants mature quickly. I think I may also have D. arenicola, but this is unconfirmed until the plants flower. When I do, you will be one of the first to receive the seed. I hope between our mutual efforts we can place this seed in as many collections as possible, and help bring these plants into the hands of the many growers worldwide who are yearning to grow them. Good work Bro!

    Thanks Tamlin, can't wait! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I immediately sowed the seeds you sent me, but I had enough successful seedlings to distribute to some people. I love distributing seeds/plants.

    Yes, Thanks so much Larry!

    This goes for everyone... the more you share, the more genetic diversity and population stability. The risk of losing plants is smaller if you have a circle of friends to whome you can distribute plants/seeds. If all of your plants die, they may be able to spare some to give back to you. If you keep all your plants, then death's sting is greater since you didn't spread the plant around.

    Sitting on a plant, no matter how rare, is doing no one a favor... and this includes yourself. If you truly care about these plants, then you will want to see as many people get joy out of them as possible. Spreading them around through trades and gifts ensures that.

    For example, a very knowledgable CP friend of mine (Ivan Snyder) developed a Drosera hybrid. He gave several seedlings away to another friend. A short while later, all of his plants died. However, since he had been generous in giving, the hybrid still exists in cultivation today and he has received some of this plant back.

    So a big thanks to all of you responsible plant sharers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Now, I have a question. This is probably the wrong topic for this, but I recently saw a listing for D. aliciae var. sessilifolia. I am assuming this is not the same plant. Does anyone know anything about this strain?

    -noah

    Noah,

    Well said! I remember Dr. Barry Meyers-Rice reply to the question "What is the best way to store seed?" Barry said the very best way to store it was to "send it to as many growers as possible". So elegant and so true.

    Regarding the D. aliciae var. sessilifolia: it is a bogus name. It could refer to just about anything. Here again is a case where registering this name would do a service to the community. Had this been done, I could at this point refer you to a photograph and detailed description. The name implies a variety of D. aliciae lacking in petiole, beyond this no one can say.
