    My wife provided a great tip on getting these bags for less than a dollar each. *Go to www.orientaltrading.com. *The item is called 'sheer polyester mesh drawstring gift bags'. item # *SP-3/497. *They are 4 3/4" X 6 1/4" with drawstrings at 12/$7.95! *Aren't wives great?? *Even when they think we lost our marbles...She's buying 'Pop Rocks' at the same site, so I guess those who live in glass houses...

    Important Update
    Looked again at catalog. *The page before had 'Sheer Organza Wedding Gift Bags. *These seem to be pure white, not silver or gold as above item. *They also come in three sizes:

    SP-3/459 Small (3 1/2" X 4 3/4") at $4.95/dozen: could be used for smaller flowers like S. rubra complex?

    SP-3/458 Medium (4 3/4" X 6 1/4") at $7.95/dozen: S. purpurea species?

    SP-3/457 Large (6" X 8") at $9.95/dozen: *for S. flava
    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.

    Crikey and blimey! This is the first time I've seen this topic, only saw it because of the topic reminding us to look at pinned things. Hehe.. Anyway, thanks a TON to Brooks for creating this article, and to PAK for posting it. Sure this'll come in handy.

    There used to be photos with this essay. It looks like they were hosted on an AOL member page. As I recall AOL has recently stopped hosting member pages.

    I've never had a chance to try and pollinate one, but I will definitely be keeping this guide saved for next time!
