Sorry can only get these once a year & in very limited quantities
So going to be picky on what I trade them for

Have some fresh Trapa Bicornis nuts
Demon / Bat / Bull Head Seeds / Pods

Perennial / Hardy to zone 5
You can store them in the fridge in a jar of water till the spring

Will trade them in lots of 5 - 6 to 10 - 12
Trade For???

I have a very unique taste in plants + limited space left
Looking for ~ Weird Odd Bizarre Strange Unusual Carnivorous Plants
Basically uncommon plants stuff most people have never heard of let alone grow
No everyday common plants that you can get at any HomeDepot or WalMart
(At least in SoCal)

Attached one of my EB ads below with more info.
Worth the read

Thanx & Sorry If I Say No / It's Nothing Personal


Up For Bid 12 Fresh "Trapa Bicornis" Nuts / Pods
A floating aquatic plant that makes very cool looking demon bat bull head shaped nuts

Just drop them in water
& They'll start to sprout within a few days

If you start them in something like a big hurricane glass candle holder
With a little sand on the bottom so you can stand the nuts up
It Makes An Awesome Display Piece When They Start Sprouting / Growing

Note: If growing in a pond / They Can Be Invasive
I like to grow them in large plastic RubberMaid bins

The Fruit / Nut Is Eatable
But MUST Be Cooked Before Eating ~ Toxic Raw
Boiled I think they taste kind of similar to Macadamia nuts

They are currently being stored in water
So they may be sprouted or starting to sprout when you receive them
Will Discontinue Sales After They Reach a Certain Size
As They're Kind Of Hard To Ship Once They Start Getting To Long

Will Combine Shipping
