Hello, up for consideration are 5 Drosophyllum Lusitanicum seeds, harvested fall of 2013. I personally tested these for germination last month - out of 6 seeds, all 6 germinated within 15 days! This auction is open to USA only. Location Data: N/A. Opening Bid: $2.00
How I germinated them: Scarification, soaked overnight in gibberellic acid, placed on very damp peat under bright lights 16hr/day.
Soil mix I'm using: 25% each of: Sand, Perlite, Pumice, Peat, with a small pit of pure peat in the center to help seeds germinate.
I have them growing in 3" peat pots, which will allow easy transfer this summer to larger terra-cotta pots, which I will place outdoors.
Received my seeds today! Thanks for the extra seeds always awesome to get bonus seeds. Great auction, thanks everyone that made it possible.
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
