    Hi again guys & gals,
    Been hectic this week so I haven't gotten the gemmae sent out yet. I will get them out Friday, it's my day off.

    I will be sending to the following people:

    Floyd
    Voodoolizard
    Buster1
    PiranhaPlant
    Slamster1789

    If your name isn't listed let me know and I will add it with the exception mentioned below.

    Several people have asked for extras. I may send out extras, but I prefer to send gemmae to people that haven't received any yet from me this year.

    It's best to plant them in a deep pot. They have long delicate roots once they get growing, and don't transplant easily. You can stick the gemmae in the fridge for a short period (about a week) if you just need time to get to the store for more peat or something. Just leave them in the little baggie to keep them from drying out. I have mine growing in 6" and 8" pots.

    Pure peat moss might be to wet for them. Their natural habitat tends to be more sandy from what I have found on the net.

    You can cover them until they sprout to help reduce the need for watering until they have roots to hold them in place. After they sprout, remove the covering as they do fine in low humidity. My humidity got so low at times this summer that all the meter showed was "Low" and my scorpioides didn't lose a bit of dew.
