    I'm glad I found this thread! I don't have any D. capensis and I can't wait to try growing them. Hopefully I have better luck than with my D. adelae.

    Thanks!

    You didn't have to send it out with 1000 seeds, could've just as easily done this. But that's really generous that you mailed it out anyway!
    NO I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT! I rode my bike there with a jar full of seed packs, paper towel, and tape. I don't come with x-tra envelopes...or even a pen. I may have to reconsider, however. I wasn't going to make three more trips to and from the post office to fix it.

    Anyway, this Travis is being nice and sending me another stamp...even though I didn't ask him to do that.

    The whole experience was just a little weird...Imagine...put yourself in my shoes. I open a tiny envelope and see 10 packs worth of stamps. I really had trouble fitting all the packs in the envelope! My thinking is: "hey, he sent that many stamps, he must want that many seed packs!, I mean I clearly explained everything."

    Thanks for the advice, anyway. It all worked out.

    TENroaches,

    You're not the only one who has had trouble with that sundew

    ---------- Post added at 05:49 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:43 PM ----------

    WAIT A SECOND! I've forgotten how many seeds there are in a packet! There are supposed to be 50+ seeds in each packet. Often there are many more than that. BUT, I sent him 500+ seeds, not 1,000 (although there may have been that many). He would have gotten 400+ otherwise.

    Sorry guys, my mistake.

    Hi, SDCPs,

    I sent my mail today. Since I also live in San Diego, I guess you may receive mine on Friday. Thanks.

    If you were careful you should have over 90% of the seed. Besides. If you place the tape and seeds in some water...don't the seeds come free? I am sorry about that, however.

    I don't know. I think we pretty well covered that this was my first seed experience. The thought hadn't even crossed my mind. I'll still send out the reimbursement stamps tomorrow for you. A deals a deal..

    Like I said, the reimbursement stamp(s) are completely your choice...not that I wouldn't mind having them Only one thing I would like to point out. You keep saying you'll send them tomorrow! (in the pms and chat-box, not this thread) Please just do it if it suits your fancy. I don't really care when.
