Yes, it is October first.
I'd like to thank Aquis31 for his latest donation, and it is pretty varied. He has shared five different species with us.
He has donated a new hybrid, one pack of aliciae x "Ultramafica Fakes". He has tested the seed and had germination, but it's still too early to tell how these are going to flesh out.
He has donated one pack of D. communis var. alba.
Also, we received a pack of D. pygmaea "Broadwater". These seeds, according to the research I have done, like a warm stratification. He sent me some earlier in the year while it was warm here in Tennessee, but I've never done warm stratification, so I let Mother Nature do it for me and I did get germination from them. Being later in the year, whoever requests these might want to read up on warm strat
He gifted us with a pack of D. capillaris "Long Arm", but I felt there were enough that I was comfortable splitting them to make two packs.
Last, he sent us a pack of D. sp. "Pretty Rosette". This one also had enough seeds to split into two packs, so hopefully a couple people can enjoy them. These seeds are thought to be a unique form of D. dielsiana, and are reported to be easy to grow. It doesn't hurt that they look nice too, one might even say they look pretty (see what I did there?).
Aquis31, thank you for your continued generosity, as well as your creativity in making hybrids. You've sent some neat crosses.
The capillaris are immediately available to all eligible members.
The cross, communis, pygmaea, and "Pretty Rosette" are immediately available to donors only for the next 48 hours, and all eligible members after that.
