I get SO EXCITED about fundraisers for carnivorous plant conservation! On a grand scale, these efforts are not so well-known, so any little contribution can have a HUGE impact! The annual benefit auction for the North American Sarracenia Conservancy is open now at Terraforums! Links and infor are at the bottom of this post. Yours truly has donated two divisions of of my biggest robust, Sarracenia plants to the auction!
First up is my Sarracenia flava var. cuprea. This is one of my largest divisions so don’t miss out!
Next up is a division of my Judith Hindle x flava var. atropurpurea. It hasn’t even been in the auction for a full day and the current bid is already triple my opening bid! 😀
If you’re interesting in winning one of these or the many other awesome plants up for auction, check out the links below!

- Bid on the S. flava var. cuprea here!
- Bid on the Judith Hindle x flava var. atropurpurea here!
By donating an auction item or bidding on plants, you’re supporting the preservation of the Sarracenia genus! Every effort helps to secure land for reintroduction into the wild, fights poaching of endangered species, preserve genetic diversity of these plants, and so much more!
I’m honestly not into “rah rah rah GOOD CAUSE! DONATE 1/3 OF YOUR SALARY TO COVER MY OVERHEAD!” fundraiser-y type stuff. And crowd funding? Fuuuhhh…. Don’t even get me started!
But causes like this, where the groups are small, passionate, dedicated, and their goals align with mine, I can totally get behind! The NASC is doing what I want to see in the world and I know where the money is going. So I am super proud to promote this and be a part of it! Feel to share this post and spread the word if you feel the same way!
Let me know if you have any questions in a comment below! I will post once more about another upcoming fundraiser in the near future! 😉
