                                          FOR SALE

     Institute of Botany in Trebon, Czech Republic, offers for sale:

A) Aldrovanda vesiculosa turions for CP growers, scientific or Nature
Conservation organizations, for cultivation or (re)introduction
activities. The plants from East Poland are cultivated outdoors.
They will be sent by post mail, as turions enclosed in a tiny PE
tube, from November to May.

     Price: 5 USD (or 8 DM)/turion + postage 6 USD (or 10 DM);
 minimum order: 10 turions; any order over 50 turions: price 3
USD/turion (or 5 DM). For the cultivation instructions see
the paper by L. Adamec (1997): "How to grow Aldrovanda vesiculosa
outdoors" in the special issue of CPN 26: 85-88. The instructions may
be sent on request.

B) Australian (sub)tropical Aldrovanda vesiculosa plants for indoor
cultivation. As dependent on light conditions these plants can be
red. Plants from an indoor culture of three Australian populations
are available (they are probably the same):
a) Subtropical: East-coast Australia, S. of Sydney, NSW;
b) Tropical: S. of Darwin, NT.
c) Tropical: Kimberley, NW Australia, WA.
     The Australian plants grow over the whole year at temperatures
above 18 oC and do not form turions. At lower temperatures, they form
weakly dormant turions. In temperate regions, they may also be grown
outdoors over summer season. Apical segments ca. 4 cm long are sent
by post mail in plastic vials or tubes, from March to November, when
outdoor temperature is above 5 oC.

     Price: 8 USD (or 13 DM)/plant + postage 6 USD (or 10 DM);
minimum order (regardless of the populations): 4 plants.

C) Turions of European temperate aquatic Utricularia species for
outdoor cultivation: U. australis, U. vulgaris, U. minor, U. bremii,
U. intermedia, U. ochroleuca. Turions are sent by post mail in
tiny PE tubes, from November to June.

     Price: 2 USD (or 3 DM)/turion + postage 6 USD (or 10 DM);
minimum order (regardless of the species): 10 turions.

D) Plants or dormant turions of Utricularia dimorphanta.
U. dimorphanta is an aquatic Japanese endemic species, formerly
growing on the whole Honshu island (subtropical to warm temperate
climate), but is critically endangered recently. Growing of this
species is the same as that of Australian Aldrovanda. However,
it prefers more shade and temperatures >20 oC. Apical segments ca. 4
cm long or turions are sent by post mail in plastic vials or tubes,
at above zero temperatures for the whole year.

     Price: 8 USD (or 13 DM)/plant or turion + postage 6 USD (or 10
DM). Minimum order: 4 plants or turions. Limited amount of this
species is available.
