    one thing to keep in mind.....while The Savage Garden is a great book it isnt nessisarily 100% accurate in all cases......also it was published in 1998 so there is another 10 years of work with these plants since it was written....even in the 4 and a half years ive been in the hobby ive seen alot of change....

    So, Peter is not exaggerating per say but if you know what you are doing you can get around the odd quirks of the seeds behavior.

    If it reassures you any I have a vial of seed from the last batch (almost a month ago now) and they are still perfectly viable and only 1 has germinated in the vial.
    Cool, thanks for the reply.
    Definitely makes sense that some creative mind would find a way to get around the quirks of the species. The human mind truly is a wonder.

    Okay, I have something like 75 interested parties so for the time being I am putting a break on this, at least until I have the seed in hand and can confirm I have enough available. So, please hold on emailing me until I drop another reply here saying "yeah" or "nay" on further availability.

    Thanks

    Just to give a visual here is that tube of seed I have had waiting for a month now. As you can see the seed is alive and well

    Okay, Important information here.

    First, everyone who got in on this, please read Barry's post on ICPS forums:

    http://icps.proboards105.com/index.c...ad=1644&page=2

    Second, the majority of the seed is out as of today (5/3). I am still waiting on addresses from a few people so check your emails.

    Alright, when all is said and done I have 9 portions of seed remaining.

    So if anyone is still interested then shoot me an email.

    Once they are gone I will post saying so.
