    Give Away Pygmy D. roseana gemmae

    I have once again been reminded of the generosity of this forum (specifically) and plant-folk (in general). And, simultaneously realized, I have some pygmy Drosera roseana spitting gemmae like nobody's business. I'd love to send two gemmae packets to new homes. This giveaway is open to...

    PAID (Acro $32) Yokohama Kate - terrestrial orchid

    Up for bid is a monster division of Beltilla Yokohama Kate. I divided my mother plant in half, and settled the offset for auction into a gallon nursery pot last month. It has started emerging, and will have some nice growths by the end of May. It’s actually already tight in the gallon pot. I’ll...

    PAID (adnedarn $14) leaf strikes - variety pack A

    Up for bid is a variety pack of 3 pinguicula leaf strikes. These are pullings that were taken several weeks ago and have started sprouting leaves. Leaf strikes can take some practice to transition, but are a great way to start a pinguicula addiction. Keep the humidity up until the plant is...

    PAID (plantsnfish $16) laueana x emarginata - double crown

    Up for bid is one Pinguicula laueana x emarginata hybrid plant. This plant is about 4” across and is dividing to form two plants. I would recommend growing it like this for a season, and then dividing next year. This hybrid is an avid grower and flower producer. It’s not uncommon for mature...

    Give Away Pay it Forward - Sarr. Hummer's Hammerhead

    I don't know about you, but I need a giveaway about now. I received this S. Hummer's Hammerhead two years ago from a generous NASC auction donor giveaway hosted by DJ57. In the last two years, it has filled a 4-inch pot to the breaking point. Time for some division, and for a few of these...

    Looking For (trade) P. cyclosecta, P. 'Tina'

    My P. cyclosecta has taken what looks like a fatal decline. I'd like to replace it through a trade. And am also looking to add P. 'Tina' to the mix. I have some pings to offer in return: P. laueana x emarginata P. ‘Sethos’ x gypsicola P. ‘Sethos’ P. ‘Gina’ P. moctezumae P. 'John Rizzi'...

    I have a variety of pinguicula for sale - both mature and young plants. Buyer chooses shipping speed: $4 for first class, $8 for priority. I can put up to 3 plants in a package for those shipping prices. This pot of laueana x emarginata is in desperate need of division and individual plants...

    Give Away Young D. adelae plants

    I have an out of control compot of D. adelae, that I need motivation to tackle. This compot (pictured below) will be divvied up and a chunk of plants sent to each of 3 winners. I'm guesstimating 3-5 plants per winner, ranging in size from 0.75" wingspan to 2"+ (give or take). This giveaway...

    Utricularia alpina from seed

    This summer I have been super excited to see my first U. alpina flowers in person. My plant put out three spikes with lovely 2.5-3" flowers. After opening in sequence, the last to open, was the first to drop. See, that empty flower to the back of the photo above. Well, upon closer inspection...

    Hitchhiker in my U. quelchii pot?

    I purchased a U. quelchii plug last fall and waited with bated breath to see how it would fare as I'm an orchidioides newbie. This spring I was tickled to see the two-leaf plug push three new leaves. As I was admiring the new growth, I noticed two tiny (I mean TINY - like 1/4") spring-green...

    For Trade P. lauena x emarginata

    Temps are getting a bit more favorable for shipping in the northern states. And I have a half dozen or so P. laueana x emarginata hybrids that I'd like to trade for other pings which I don't currently have (see my grow list). Of particular interest are 'huahuapan', moctezuma, cyclosecta...

    Moss in utricularia pots

    I've read that when moss overtakes your utricularia, that it's possible to try and separate a moss-free starter plug and start again or that in some cases, it might be possible to "drown the moss out" by keeping the pot submerged. I have a pot of U. sandersonii and another of U. dichotoma that...

    P. jaumavensis v. P. esseriana

    P. jaumavensis is new to me - just got my plant a few months ago. Before purchasing the plant, I was wondering if I had the space for something that looked to me (from web image searches) to be so similar to the P. esseriana I already owned. Well, on the space-front, it's about as diminutive as...

    U. alpina - leaf discoloration

    I only have a handful of Utricularia species. And, they've all been aquired in the last year, so I'm still pretty new to these plants. I've had this U. alpina about 8 months. Once it settled into my conditions, it unfurled 3 leaves over the summer. But a few weeks ago, I noticed the tips of the...

    Give Away Young D. capensis plant - seed grown

    I know most folks have one (or six) of these tucked in their collection, but this is a great carnivorous plant for beginners. And I'm trying to make a bit of room, as I work to bring the carnies inside with the cooling weather. This compot will be divvied up and one plant sent to each of 5...

    Any tips for blooming P. zecheri?

    The only ping in my small collection that I haven't managed to bloom (and have owned for > 12 months), is a P. zecheri. Any tips from those of you that grow and bloom this ping successfully? When does it typically bloom for you (during dormancy? during active carnivorous growth? time of year?)...

    For Trade P. laueana x emarginata

    In a repotting incident gone a bit awry last spring, I ended up with a lot of P. laueana x emarginata leaf pullings. Most struck and now I have a dozen or so good sized ones that I'd like to trade for other pings I don't have (see my grow list). Some are growing outside in bright shade, some...
