Drosera trinervia Stormsvleikloof, RSA seeds (at least 30 seeds probably much more)

The honor of the most numerous and widely distributed South African Drosera goes not to Drosera capensis but to the humble Drosera trinervia. This is a small rosetted sundew getting to ~1-1.25 inches (2.5-3.2 cm) across with brilliant white flowers. Perhaps the easiest to grow of the winter growing sundews it will go dormant in the summer months dying back to the roots.

Like most South African Drosera the optimal growing temperature is between 50 and 85°F though they will tolerate temperatures above and below that. What I find best for germinating the seeds are cooler temperatures between 55 and 72°F ambient humidity (<=75%) and very wet media. You should start some seeds during the spring and some after summer. No stratification hot or cold is needed. GA3 treatment may help but cooler temperatures and lower humidity are probably the most important factors. Germination should begin after 3-4 weeks. When the plants go dormant the media should be allowed to slowly dry completely. Protect the pots from rain and direct sun for a minimum of six weeks. Plants should resume growth on their own at which time you should slowly begin watering. Keep in standing water during growing season. If they do not resume growth by onset of winter you can usually break dormancy by very slowly moistening the media until growth starts.

This is becoming an annual offering for me. As long as the plants produce seed around the same time as the auction I will donate some.

At least 30 of the freshest seeds will be sent.

I'll pay shipping if the seeds are the only item. I'm going to try something different this time and I am willing to ship seed and only seed out of the US. Please consider:
  1. I will declare these for custom purposes as "seeds for planting"
  2. No Phytosanitary Certificate will be supplied
  3. Any permits required by the recipient will be paid for by the winner and supplied to me before the item will be shipped
  4. If possible bidder should refer to a URL on a government website the covers importation of seeds for planting. If an English translation is not available do not bid. Google translate does very poorly with legal language.

Bidding starts at $2.00 USD

Winner should contact the lister/donor within three days to make shipping arrangements. Payment for the ITEM WON will go directly to Sheila Stewart, Treasurer for NASC (see payment methods and address above); please do NOT send ITEM payment to the seller! But DO remit any shipping fees directly to the seller. Once Sheila has received payment for an item, she will notify the donor (and copy the bidder) that s/he can ship the item; the donor should have received shipping fees by this time. Donor has 14 days to ship the item once NASC has received payment.

PAYMENT FOR A WON ITEM: Payment can be made by personal check, money order, cashier's check or Paypal. Make your checks out to North American Sarracenia Conservancy; send your total payment amount to:

NASC Treasurer
ATTN: Sheila Stewart
PO Box 43
Wesson, MS 39191

Paypal to treasurer (at) nasarracenia (dot) org as "Goods, other". Please make sure you use the "note" function and title it "AUCTION" along with ALL other pertinent information listed below...so Sheila (catrus) will know what payments are auction related and for which items/seller.

***VERY IMPORTANT***
When you send in your payment, you MUST include the following information:

1) Your real first and last name
2) Your TerraForums ID (if a member)
3) Phone number and email address *just in case* we need to contact you
4) a) full list of EACH Item you won and are paying for
b) Ending bid (price) of EACH item
c) The FORUM name or email of the donor (so they can be notified to ship!)

If you are MAILING a payment in, please use this handy PDF form. Print it out, fill it in with the above information and send with your payment: http://www.nasarracenia.org/wp-conte...-form-2012.pdf (Please note that this is an old form. Send your payment to Sheila Stewart at the address above.)

Any "mystery payments" (no identifiers) will be refused by NASC and returned to the sender.

SHIPPING FEES: The LISTER (DONOR) will choose who pays the shipping on their item. He/she may offer to pay shipping OR require the bidder to pay shipping costs; this information MUST be disclosed in the listing information so the bidder knows prior to bidding who will pay the costs. Shipping fees (as accurate as possible) and/or restrictions should be clearly posted in the listing (item topic); shipping costs can be estimated. Seller/donor should take all care possible to ensure their item is well packed and will arrive in good shape.

PAYMENT/SHIPPING POLICY: No item will be shipped until payment has been received. Each winner will have 30 days from the close of auction to remit payment to NASC and any shipping fees to the donor (seller). Items must be shipped to winners within 14 days of receipt of payment. If item payments are not received within the 30 day time allowance, the bid is voided and the next highest bidder will be offered the item at their highest bid. The same time allotments apply to each winner bidder if previous bids have been voided. Insurance will be at the request and expense of the buyer.


Please post here any updates to your auctions. Please post when payment is made, item shipped and item received.

Thank you
