Many of you may have seen my ebay ads for Sarracenia seeds sets A thru H the last few months. About time to plant now. The higher end stuff, say sets A thru C, I will just be planting the extras myself. The others, which number well over 100 packs of seeds,10 to 50 seeds each, I was just going to give away. I have the common lack of space issue. Anyone interested may send me a self addressed stamped envelope by say Saturday, April 22. How ever many envelopes I have by then, will get all the seeds divided up equally. You may send your envelopes to Michael Sprouse, po box 1411, Cooleemee, NC 27104. Sorry, but if I receive your envelope on Monday April 24, I will not have any seeds for you. For those of you with room, enjoy.
Can't say I have not had hesitations on ebay myself, look for the sellers that offer full refunds, especially for 30 days, it is tough to go wrong. On the note for a couple of packs, not sure how many responses I will get, so if you do not want 10 or 20 packs, you may want to include a note.
Just a regular legal size envelope will be fine. I will put seeds in a small bubble wrap bag inside the envelope. As far as choosing, If you can remember what I had listed, ok, in looking over my list, I am feeling too lazy to type out the 60 or so seed types I have left. Did I say a hundred packets, probably closer to 200.
I wanted to confirm who all would get seeds. Got one more envelope in the mail today. I really hope the below list includes everyone who sent in an envelope. Josh S., Nile S., James W., David R., Steve K., Danny P., Travis S., Alex B., Jamie N., Luis C., Dexter C., Merrick R., Darrel F., Steven S., Roi M., Julia S. Everyone, goodluck and enjoy them.
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.
