The ICPS Seed Bank is almost out of Sarracenia alabamensis seeds. We distribute the seeds under a permit from the USF&WS as part of a poaching abatement program.
Is there anyone who wishes to commit to attempting to produce on the order of 4000 Sarracenia alabamensis seeds a year? That is how many we have been selling. Even 2000 would be very helpful. You need to know the history of your plants so we know they really are Sarracenia alabamensis and you need to have at least two different clones so they may be intercrossed. Seeds from selfed Sarracenia have a high proportion of runts.
Please e-mail me at my carnivorousplants.org address if you are interested helping out on this conservation project.
