November 10, 2017
After taking a couple weeks off from auctions, we are back with 25 new auction items that were posted last Sunday. These plant auctions will all finish up on Friday and we will post another lot of plants for auction on Sunday, November 12. With high customer demand and requests we posted an established Nepenthes edwardsiana, one of our own clones, as well as another Nepenthes klossii. There are also some nice seed grown Nepenthes veitchii plants, some hardened-off Christian Klein plants, and some nice Drosera and Utricularia.
This week and likely for the foreseeable future, we will be using proceeds from the auctions to make a donation to Meadowview Biological Research Station. The Native Exotics team visited the facilities last weekend in Woodford, Virginia and got caught up by Meadowview’s President Phil Sheridan on all their conservation efforts. Meadowview continues to lead the way in Sarraceniaconversation effort in the United States and currently owns two large preserves in Virginia with large populations of native Sarracenia flava and Sarracenia purpurea. This non-profit runs largely on donations so please check out the different ways you can support this amazing non-profit. There are opportunities to buy rare pitcher plants from their catalog, contribute through Amazon Smile, or just make a cash donation via PayPal.
Be sure to check out the current auctions page to get your bids in on plants. More auctions will be posted on Sunday, 12 November.

Inventory Update – Saturday, November 11th
We will be doing an inventory update on Saturday, November 11 at 9:00 PM ET. There will be many new established plants from Borneo Exotics, Christian Klein, as well as Native Exotics exclusives from our own production.
Exotica Plants Pre-order #1 and #2
The Exotica Plants import will finally arrive in the next few weeks. We will notify all customers in advance of the import arriving to provide ample time if any accommodations need to be made, as we will be immediately forwarding plants via USPS. We ordered many plants for our own inventory and collection, so if you missed out on the pre-order there are chances to get EP inventory in upcoming auctions and inventory updates from Native Exotics.
Next Few Months
We have thousands of plants that have been imported recently and will be made available over the upcoming colder months. We have had customers worried about getting plants order in time for winter. Please do not worry— we ship year-around and offer a live plant guarantee. If your plants dies in shipping due to cold weather we will replace the plant or if we cannot accomodate the replacement, we will provide a store credit for the value of the lost item.
Cold weather shipping will go into effect during during winter, and will not slow down Native Exotics. In the coming months we will be offering plants from Andreas Wistuba’s Nepenthes Nursery. We have several new imports from Christian Klein, several Borneo Exotics imports, and additional Exotica Plants inventory. We also look forward to offering some really special seed grown species and hybrids produced at Native Exotics.
