If your seedlings died, then try again, don't quit! Maybe we can figure out what went wrong and fix it. Growing from seed is where it's at! Anyone can buy a plant or trade for one, but that's like coming into the movie halfway through. Watching the whole process from seed to seed is what growing CP is all about, not to mention it gives you tons of trading material Don't just be a plant haver, be a grower! Once you harvest your own seed from a plant seed grown you can say you have mastered the species. This is where the respect from other growers starts (and deservedly so), and also what will bring rare plants to your doorstep. Money probably won't do this, but if you can show you got what it takes then anything might happen and often does. There is a good feeling that comes when other growers share something rare with you because they trust your skills. It's one of my biggest rushes really. I'd be happy to help you refine your skills with seed. It really isn't all that complicated.
