I'm posting this note to quickly answer all those who were wondering what I am growing and have available. Quick answer ... I'm too lazy to update and keep track of a list , but like the rest of you, I know every plant in my collection and know what I don't have.
In addition, I've got a pile of sarracenias, and truth is that I'd have to sit down and figure out what varieties of species I have. I have duplicates of every species, and I do know that I used to collect every single variety of S flava I could lay my paws on, so almost every cultivar and variety known to exist (up to 1998) are in my collection.
I've also got a nice collection of highland neps...a few hundred, many of which are over 5 years old, and are identified as either male or female (after having bloomed). I plan to make cuttings on a number of them in spring 2007, so I should have some good selections available for trading next June.
As for lowlanders, I'm mostly into just three - bical varieties, raff varieties, and amp varieties. I've also got a few other lowlanders available for trade, but again, I'm too lazy to document them all ... but off the top of my head the following lowlanders are available: albomarginata red, albo green, amp speckled, amp green, raff nivea gigantea, x hookeriana (as a cutting next year).
VFTs, I've got a pile of seedlings growing, and thanks to Sib, I've got some nice varieties this year. Oh, and did I mention my capensis, they're everywhere, and truthfully? I love it
