I’m considering joining the ICPS One of the perks of being a member is the seed bank. I am curious, how extensive is the list? I’m mainly interested in Sarracenia but other U.S. CPs are also of interest.

Ive heard the list is quite extensive, however, on this forum, every year jerry addington posts his seed list, which is some of the best, most extensive, and exclusive crosses. Rob co of pitcher plant project also has seeds on his website. And we are planning an op free seed giveaway project for late fall too.
You can join icps for the newsletter and other perks, but if seed is all you want i would say other sources offer more variety and in greater amounts.
Creator of the forums! Yeah, I know I was away for a while, but I am back.

The ICPS seedbank is an absolutely fantastic resource, and the organization is worth contributing to even without the perk of the seedbank. It’s a great vehicle for greater awareness of this hobby, and they’ve made some important contributions to CP habitat stewardship and conservation.
Now, let me also say that it’s simply easier to produce large quantities of Drosera seed compared to Sarracenia. The Drosera selection is huge compared to Sarracenia, but there are also more extant species of Drosera to begin with. The Sarr seed selection peaks in the fall, and they sell out very quickly. You can get great location-data stuff there. And a big perk to me personally is that they are permitted to sell federally endangered seed across state lines.
But another thing to keep in mind is that the ICPS is totally, 100% reliant upon member donations. I encourage everyone here to (1) keep detailed records of their crosses and (2) consider creating and donating pure-species seed to ICPS. I have a feeling that the value of pure-species and pure-variety seed is overlooked compared to hybrids, at least among collectors. The purpose of the ICPS seedbank is (and rightfully should be) the species themselves, and not necessarily the myriad of cultivated hybrids. After all, that’s the stuff that’s rare in the wild and most in need of preservation and distribution.
If you wind up with a few spare flowers at the end of the year, especially stuff with location data, it would be a substantial service to ICPS and the community to consider donating your seed.

Good to know other folks appreciate the same qualities that I do!
The CPN article was great, and I’m glad they asked Jess to publish a slightly less technical version of her paper. I’m quite proud of all the folks involved; I have known a number of them for several years. And while there’s always going to be more work to do, they did a stellar job.

For whatever reason, the ICPS seed bank is now behind a paywall. If you don’t have access, you can’t really compare it to other society’s seed banks. So, I decided to cut and paste it for you –
