    howdy all.
    Ron Ruppel from SE Fla. (Treasure Coast, specifically) I've been into CPs for many years, but several years ago I fell out of contact with the community, and over the years my collection gradually died off. My last, a Nep x Andrewensis, passed away just last month and I've been in something of a panic mode since. I've ordered seeds, and will order more as funds permit. (too bad they can't fax them to me)
    My main focus is Aussie CPs (though I love them all). I've had a lot of luck with pygmies (good) and tuberous (bad). I believe I'll try peltata from seed, to see if maybe I can talk them into hanging around. see ya 'round

    Welcome to the forums! Keep an eye on the trade forum starting in November and you may be able to pick up gemmae for a trade or just postage. There's quite a few of us that grow pygmies.

    Welcome! D.scorpioides is an easy to grow pygmy. BCK sent me quite a few gemmae last year, and I will probably be overloaded with D.scorpioides gemmae this fall thanks to BCK

    I keep telling people that they don't need more than a dozen or so gemmae cause they'll be up to their ears in them in the fall. But do they ever believe me?? Yep! In the fall when they are up to their ears in gemmae...

    Dewy, I'll race ya to see whoes plants start producing gemmae first.

    Welcome to TF! My very first trading post venture was the tail end of D. scorpioides offering from BCK. That was in January of 2004. I'm still growing them!

    I could make mine start producing them now because of the grow light I use.

    This fall, I will be up to my ears in gemmae like BCK said
