Sorry to post this here, but I can not find the e-mail addresses
for Tom Hayes and Jean DeWitte. Anyways, a while ago both of you
contacted me, interested in CP trade. I passed your names and that of
others to my friend Fabio, who is in charge of our "CP Common Market".
He told me he has not received any letter from you yet, so I'm writing
to ask you if we were the ones who were supposed to have contacted you
and sent you a list of seeds we have available. I forget what it is we
agreed. Hoping to hear from you soon!

Best Wishes,


P.S. For those of you who don't know or forgot, we have seeds of
native Brazilian Drosera, Utricularia, and Genlisea for trade. If any of
you are interested, please write to my friend Fabio, who is in charge of
our trade:

Fabio Pinheiro
Rua Brasileiro de Campos 108
Jardim Marina 03560-160
Sao Paulo, S.P.

We are mainly on the lookout for Neps, Mexican Pings, epiphytic
Utrics, CPs from the Roraima Region (including D.intermedia "Mt.Roraima",
D.roraimae, D.felix, D.esmeraldae, D.arenicola, D.kaieteurensis,
Heliamphora, and any others), Aldrovanda, and even something which most of
you may have: D.capillaris and D.brevifolia from the USA. If possible, we
are always interested in several specimens of each, in case live plants
are being sent, so that these can be distributed among the (few) CP
cultivators here.
In the spring we would also be interested in receiving mature
plants of N.Hemisphere Drosera which go dormant. Our winters are not
strong enough here, so these plants are hard to maintain and usually do not
flower. We want mature plants coming out of dormancy or about to. Our
objective is to have flowering plants so that the flowers may be drawn
and compared to those of the native Brazilian Drosera. It would be
interesting to have specimens from different continents too, if possible.
In fact, this reminded me of another question. Does anyone have
the D.anglica from Hawaii?? This one should adapt well to conditions here
since I've heard it doesn't go dormant.
