    Hey fb (hee heee). I got my seed from a catalog out of the UK. (I have a few seeds up for trade so PM me if you like, but you're better off spending a few bucks to buy the whole pack because....) I must say that growing from seed is a bit of a pain. Most don't germinate. Out of a pinch of seeds (1/4 of the pack), I got 4 to grow. At least that's what I've seen so far. Got the four in the first week of planting, but the package says they can take up to 12 weeks to germinate.

    I've had them for about 3 months and they're a little bigger than the size of this "O". They're cute, and I like the mystery of what they'll look like, but I think I might order the full-sized ones later on.

    lm (heh heh) "blowing up" refers to overwatering. Think overfilled water balloons!

    When they blow up do they really like splatter, or do they just split and gush a little bit of flesh?

    I'm thinking that you're hiding your overwatering mistake... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
