It helps those who would donate plants and other items to the auction to hear what it is that auction participants would like to bid on. What would you like to win in this year's auction? Photo is just to add some visual interest.

South African sundew species less common in cultivation, South American species, N. hamata or edwardsiana (I can dream...), uncommon Utricularia species....the list is probably longer than I can type here.

Heliamphora :love:

But I've been known to bid on Sarracenia, Drosera, and Utricularia before...

I might like to see a N Rafflesiana var. alata Mizuho Kondo or one N. rafflesiana x Hemsleyana that I might have recently commented on 😁. Echos to the live sphag and HC's request for a Hamata or Edwardsiana. I also wouldn't mind N. Macrophylla, Lowii or Trusmadiensis making a showing either. Although I recognize that these are a bit of a stretch 😏. I'm sure I'd love a P. Cyclosecta 🤔 and I've seen some great examples of the D. petiolaris complex here 👀. Always love me some tropical Drosera too 😋. Might be nice to have some sarracenia seeds offered; both premium crosses and "complex hybrids" ⚖. Lastly, looking to get my UHLers some friends. So Leptospermum (tea tree), Odontoglossum Wyattianum, and other high elevation companions.

I'd be most interested in a young Aloe Hercules.
I'll also keep an eye out for interesting Yucca, succulents, and cacti.
(I don't grow carnivorous plants anymore.)

CPs: I'm a sucker for pings, especially temperate varieties, tropical, pygmy or spatulata sundew varieties, and helis. I've been known to throw down for sarra seeds a time or two.... Non-CPs: orchids of all kinds, air plants, and interesting aloes.

Utricularia especially pubescens, other unusual terrestrials, or any of the various epiphytes; Mexican Pinguicula species; epiphytic and lithophytic ferns; maybe handmade pottery?
