    Hey Christian,

    Fortunately most S.American Drosera are native to areas ***FAR*** more accessible than D.meristocaulis and its darn Neblina Massif!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Take care,
    Fernando

    do i take this to mean you have collected some seed and will be passing it along to some capable growers to get it introduced?

    Jim Miller told me about a month ago not to say anything to anyone about this, but since Fernando let it out, what the heck!. Stew McPherson may be collecting seed caps. Britain may get the benefit of this species, but Jim Miller might get some from Stew. If that is the case, they will be here soon. They still have some expedition time left on this trip, so waiting is the usual. If Jim gets any, I will alert some of you folks.

    To all,

    Please keep your eyes open as D.meristocaulis seed will soon be available from Allen Lowrie. To obtain his seed list, please write to:

    Thanks for bringing this rare and exciting species in cultivation, but why did you give it to a cp dealer? Now everyone can buy them. I doubt that the beginners will get them to germinate!!! For conservation reasons I would have given those seeds only to real experts...(so they can propagate them for the masses).

    Please explain? Did you got a ton of those seeds?

    Hello Jan,

    Don't worry, plenty of seeds are also going to expert hands. Allen Lowrie's seed list is simply a democratic way of getting them around without giving me much trouble. Furthermore, I'm certain that even those people who have the smallest of CP collections have money to spare to buy a packet of seeds from Allen Lowrie. Allen will not be charging US$100 for each seed packet, believe me. (But even if he did, it's still a very cheap price to pay for such rare seeds which nearly cost me my knee!)

    Take Care,
    Fernando Rivadavia
