Instructions for cleaning seed and making the individual wax paper packets can be found here: http://www.carnivorousplants.org/about/store/packets

    Currently I believe there are 20+ items listed on the Seed Bank website.
    I always thought this was required! Guess a lot of people don't send separate packets when they donate... I can see how that would get difficult to keep up with.

    Glad to see that it's been updated though!

    It's not required but you do get additional donor credits when you clean and packetize seeds before sending them in. See the website for details.

    John no longer has anything to do with the management of the seedbank other than forwarding the mail to Joe.

    It's good to see some new stock in there. It's been at least a year since I've noticed anything new added.

    I had always thought that the individual packets thing was a requirement too; I always packetize my seeds whether I'm donating or selling myself anyway, and it's not a difficult prospect....a few seed types in there I'm gonna have to see if I can acquire now too with the credits I should have left.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
