    I believe we all have some responsibility to "moderate" any discussion group we participate in, and its inevitable that sometimes, in their enthusiasm, someone will jump on a new member and chide them about breaking a rule - probably one they knew nothing (or little) about. So, here we have one new TF member jumping on another new member about (somewhat inappropriately) sending out a request for propagating materials to repopulate a lost collection.

    Given the fact that both are new to TF, it might be most productive (and kinder!) to offer guidance for both rather than chiding them for a first offense. Surely we can take a more benign approach to such modest infringements? (Barely infringements at all, IMO) It's probably not a coincidence that the OP hasn't posted a followup; she is likely feeling attacked for what she thought was a harmless request. We can do better that that in fostering a more welcoming community atmosphere, I know we can :-)

    Respectfully,
    Paul

    I'm in the process of rooting a couple cuttings of N. maxima x bongso. I'd be happy to send one your way once they're fully recovered!

    it was all very frustrating .. I left detailed instructions. She didn't even contact me when they began to fail, she just let them die.

    Well, she also managed to destroy my Mexican Ping collection, fortunately my Sarrs were dormant and have weathered her lack of care.

    Sorry to hear about your collection, that's awful. I have an upcoming basal of spectabilis x lowii (although it's rather slow) if you're interested. I'll keep you in mind when it's large enough to separate

    Now that I know, I would be happy to donate once I have some growth
