Stuff to giveway: 34 served so far!

Hi everyone. It's been a cold April, so I'm thinking of early May to mail stuff. Everything will be free except for postage and maybe some mailing material depending.
There will be:
A lot of small to established but small Nepenthe bellii. These are from TC and there are quite a few.
A lot of small VFT's from TC, pretty well standard but with mostly nice red traps (with good light). Some are TC "balls o' plants" that can be separated into babies. Although small, these will grow quickly when they get some space to spread.
Big mats of Utricularia gibba with other Utrics growing in the mats: calcifyda, nephrophylla, subulata, I have lots to give away. Maybe a Drosera hamiltonii hiding in the gibba also.
A flat leaved Utric (terrestrial, label lost)
3 N. vetchii, small but established.
Some Noid Nepenthe from Labine which is easy to grow,
Some Noid Nepenthe (I lost the tag) from WillyCKH
Some Heli seedlings (small juveniles) either nutans or heterophylla X minor
Some Sarr's from TC. Getting to be a year old and varying depending when they got out of TC and took off. These are from Carson's seed stock and the older ones are showing some nice colour.
A cutting of Pachycentra glauca (antplant)
A small but healthy Myrmecodia tuberosa
Some small Weingartia (Cacti) from seed
Some small Eriosyce odorosa (Cacti) from seed
Cuttings of Pereskiopsis spathulata for Cactus grafting.
3 month old seedlings of Melocactus matanzanus suitable for grafting.

So lots of stuff and mostly small.
I would really like to send the least number of packages to save on my effort and save on shipping. I would appreciate if some people who want stuff, would volunteer to get a package for a number of people in one Center, say Calgary for example. Then the others from say Calgary could pick up their stuff from this one person. People would have to divide up the shipping in an equitable way, perhaps the secondary distributor would get a break on the shipping by the others in the same center. We'll see how this works out.

Who gets what depends on who I owe favours to, who I know or like the most, who is most active & generous on the forum but generally in my past giveaways everybody who asks gets something nice (maybe small stuff).

So if you want something, post in this thread. If you want to be a secondary distributor, post it here too.
 
Hi Lloyd and happy Easter!
If available, I’d be interested in an easy to grow Noid nepenthes and a try at the Utricularia, as I haven’t ventured into those yet (only have VFT’s, a few Drosera species, and 2 sarracenias). If you need a Winnipeg distributor, I would volunteer. Thanks so much - you are extremely generous!

Lloyd even if you give away your mat of gibba, in the next week you'll have more then you had before you gave it away. ;)

If possible I'll be interested in the gibba and Tc sarrs. I never acclimated a sarr before.

Anyways, if people in the GTA want too I could drive around and help distribute. As long as gas doesn't get too bad. I already drive around quite a bit now and a little more doesn't hurt.

Hey Lloyd

I would offer to distribute as well, but there is definitely a lack of collectors here.
I am interested in the N bellii and the N vetchii. But would pass if someone else is also interested and easier for you.

So generous Lloyd!

I would like any plants that I could put on our tropical forest and bog in the boutique! It will be a nice display of carnivorous plants and tropicals plants so visitors can see to enjoy the amazing nature of theses specials plants.

From Utricularia, Nepenthes, Ant plants, etc. Doesn’t matter if you don’t have the name of the plants. Theses plants wouldn’t be for sale as it‘s for creating a nice display of nature.

I plan to create the display around mid June and I will send you a picture when it’s completed.

Thanks for your help

Cheers Lloyd! I would be happy to be the distribution person for Essex County! Personally I would love a baby heli or two to grow out. @Rug @Troy West and a few others down here would probably be i terested too.
 
Wow! Thanks Lloyd!

I'd be interested in a N. Belli or N. Veitchii
Any Heli that you have left.
A ball of VFT - I needed a few more VFTs to give to my students so this is good timing!
A portion of Utric mat

I can be a shipping point for people in the GVA. I live in Port Moody, BC. For anyone in BC, I won't be able to drive and deliver, but I live next to a skytrain station.

That's incredibly generous. I'd love to have another chance with N. veitchii, having grown one before moving to Canada. I'd also be keen to try my hand at a clump of a Utricularia mat & - if you haven't given them all away - a Heliamphora juvenile.

It looks like PegCityGirl has offered to distribute in Winnipeg, but if you see fit to give me anything I'd certainly be happy to chip in the lion's share of shipping costs. (And I possibly have a few CPs I can give you, PegCityGirl).

Thanks Lloyd!
It's really generous!

Personally I'm interested by:
- Heli seedlings (small juveniles) heterophylla X min
- Noid Nepenthe from WillyC
- Noid Nepenthe from Labine

But let me talk with @BarbBaskaBasia and the rest of our Manitoban group first hehe
Thanks again!
 
Hello Lloyd! What a kind and generous offer! ❤ I would be happy to be the pick up centre for Manitoba/ Winnipeg (I usually manage our regional CP group and their group orders, so many of the local collectors know me and the pick up ). If you have some available, I would be very interested in the below:

- Nepenthes Bellii
- VFT
- Utricularia Gibba
- Sars
- Noid nepenthes (I am happy with with any)

We will be having a few get together events for the group this spring and summer with a few give aways, if you have items that you do not know what to do with, we will have lots of members that will enjoy them. :)
