Thanks everyone! you're far too flattering . I agree microprop. makes it waaay easier to raise dews to maturity, which is why i wanted to try it so much. It's a bit painstaking though, even in the lab, so i'm in awe of people who are able to successfully do this at home.
I will do my best to keep these alive til i get back to school and hopefully i there will be some time to give some spares away.
Good to hear from you Paul! Hopefully we can make it to another midwest gathering in a year or so. Hope everything is "growing" well for you
