In the past we have donated to: North American Sarracenia Conservancy Meadowview Biological Research Station TNC of Alabama
On top of these nominees we also have: (1) Atlanta Botanical Garden, has been involved with Sarracenia conservation since 1989 (especially S. purpurea var. montana), including display gardens (http://atlantabg.org/plan-your-visit/locations/conservation-gardens) as well as propagation, safeguarding genetic diversity, and reintroduction efforts.
(3) State Botanical Garden of Georgia -- founding organization of the Georgia Plant Conservation Alliance, which among other things targets conservation of mountain bogs, Sarracenia within Georgia, and other rare plants that occur alongside CPs in their habitats botgarden.uga.edu/conserve.php#Intro The three above were nominated by theplantman
If you have any other organization you believe our t-shirt sale profits should go to, please nominate them below!
Creator of the forums! Yeah, I know I was away for a while, but I am back!!!
I would also like to nominate The Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division, Nongame Conservation Section. I know that sounds overly bureaucratic, but this is the specific branch of GADNR that manages over 130 threatened and endangered species in Georgia, including all species of Sarracenia. They are in charge of the creation and management of state Natural Areas, which include Doerun Pitcherplant Bog and many, many other CP habitats. They work with landowners to secure conservation easements for the rare plants that are not protected on government or nonprofit property. They do burns, keep herbicide crews from DOT or power companies from blasting away Sarracenia accidentally, and also outreach to the public on how important conservation is. Members from GADNR also participated in the successful rescue of flavas from the well-known Statesboro Bog site in Bulloch Co., GA. This agency makes up a critical piece of conservation work for CPs in Georgia.
Additionally, this section only receives funding from license plate sales, and a donation toward their work would likely be quite appreciated. They don't have as large of a state budget as many other agencies.
Thanks, Jonathan, for bringing up the other great organizations that could use our support!! I hope we sell a boatload of shirts!!
summit: Hey guys, I'm about to sow some seeds and I was curious to know what everyone thinks 'too hot' for Sarracenia seeds would be? Having them in the dome bumps up the temps a bit.

DirtyDivisions: summit I’ve been fine at a constant 95° F under the dome. Once the tiny seedlings have two pitchers I remove the dome and temps go down.

summit: @dirtydivisions Thanks for that! I'm sitting around 87-88F with the dome fully sealed but I wasn't doing that and sacrificing humidity to keep it cooler but I'll go ahead and close it down now!

mikee: Thanks you chofah, there is a great video from The Pitcher Project with Phil Faulisi this was what I was looking for. However it still appears to be wait and see what results come from the cross. Many thanks

Willy: It would be rather silly to expect totally predictable results from a cross. The individual plants grown from the seeds will vary, sometimes quite a bit, even with carefully protected hand pollination. If you open polinate, the variety may be even greater.

superstressed: Recently purchased a s. purpurea from Mike and I am so impressed with the quality of the plant that arrived. My Purpurea is now one of the larger plants in my collection! Mike also included an beautiful Flava var. for free. I will absolutely buy again.
