    LOL, thanks for the spelling lessons guys, I guess turnabout is fair play. You will note however I do not correct spelling except in the instance of proper scientific names, otherwise I'd go stirrrrr crazy :-)

    Every envelope will be returned with something in it, at least one species per envelope and probably more. Exactly what depends on your note inside the SASE, I suggest an "anything but" format whenever possible. I get far too occupied to remember any details, so y'all have to do my thinking for me.

    Dustin, sorry I missed you today on the PM, I ended up going to the bog to harvest moss for the winter months: good days are getting precious here as well you know. PM me for another date. Now isn't the best time to come anyways, only the D. plaeacea ssp's are making gemmae presently.

    There is no rush needed for anyone. I will probably hold off sending as long as possible (except for any SASES marked with a D. paleacea request) in order to be able to send the greatest numbers of species. Expect this to take a month or so, plants must make the gemmae first, and I have a lot of things on my plate so this isn't going to be a speedy deal.

    I am trying to get my seed divided as well, and if this is possible I will also be offering free seeds at the same time: easier to offer everything at once.

    Just like last season, I have no money. In fact, I have less than no money and it looks like nothing will change this year. Anyone wanting to help me in my efforts to distribute this stuff, feel free to pop a few bucks into the SASE'S as well, and it will help me reach as many growers as possible. If you can't it won't matter, I'll still send you some material but I will TRY to reserve the short supply and rare maaterial for "generous donors". Oh yeah, if you happen to have some small ziplock bags send them with the SASE, it will help! Anything done x 1000 starts costing, and I have no money at all so I am going to need help to do all this.

    I am also interested in hearing of your success rates. Some material is difficult, and I would like to see this to go to those who have developed some good skills with growing the pygmys. This way, there will be a greater number of skilled growers to reproduce the rare material, and then it will be less rare. SO if you think you have the "knack" for these plants, convince me!

    Growers outside the U.S. please contact me privately for options on acquiring gemmae this season if you have interest. I have some thoughts and suggestions regarding this.

    Wow, what a generous offer. I'll be sending you a SASE on Monday. I'll be happy with anything you send, as I currently don't have any Drosera!

    Just keep in mind, this is a future event. The plants are not producing currently, and I can't say for certain that they will. I have not cut by photoperiod back yet: I am experiencing the beauty of flowering Pinguicula, and if I go down much, all the rosettes will immediately go into winter dormant mode. They only start growing well for me in August, and are flowering in middle September. I am lucky to get one month of active plants! So this year, I am leaving the photoperiod extended, and this certainly will delay the gemmae. I feel confident enough that it will happen to get ready for the event, but it has not happened yet.

    Also, as I said, I can't really promise any specific species. I will try to meet your requests if you care to make them, but there is no way I can fortell how much I will have, or if I will have it. Or if I will remember it, even if I said I would! Ya spins the wheel and ya takes yer chance. I hate to disappoint, so the less promised the better.

    Tamlin,

    Thank you for your generous offer, again. The money is on the way.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    I sent a sase as well as a dozen bryophillium plantlets (just in case you wanted them) mine wil be adressed noah gantnier so when you get that one open it up and plant the bryophilliums! Btw if you`r pygmys don`t produce gemmae will you send every body something else?
