I'd imagine several, especially if Chef is willing to mix more from existing stock... But honestly I expected the mixed rosettes to still be in the inventory halfway through May, so clearly my attempts to psychically divine the Will of Chef aren't working.

Perhaps I need to buy new sage :lol:

And chef can always make more. Capes make a ton of seeds. Which is why there are a lot of capensis bulk options.

Who knows?
I've been putting about 100-ish seeds in per pack, and there are only five or six Cape varieties in there. However, some varieties had multiple packs put into the mix.
It'll be gone when it runs out.

I pulled the listing because it was so popular, but there was less in there than the mixed Capes. After all the existing requests get fulfilled, it may make a reappearance.

"Sage", yeah, "sage".

Let us know if you think you are going to keep it. I'll stop cutting the flower stalks off of my mystery dews.

I'm thinking of keeping it. I'm just undecided if it's popular because it just the newest thing, or if it's actually something that people are genuinely going to want long term.

Bulk means that it isn't separated into packs for any of a number of reasons. However, it doesn't necessarily mean an abundance, it might only have a few portions left, it just hasn't gotten down to the last.

For what it's worth, I've got a friend who wanted to join the forums just to request the Tier 0 mixed rosettes :lol:

Personally, I chose them for practical reasons - I wanted a rosetted sundew seed pack in case the Aliciae cutting continues not striking, and I wasn't feeling picky. But that's all the reasoning I have for seed bank packs - "Oh that's cool, I don't have that, it's pretty!"

It's probably more popular for being new and flashy, but I imagine that as you get further down the rabbit hole it's easier to say (and care) if you want burmannii Hong Kong, or Red, or Perlata, or just burmannii, or sessilifolia... But if you're just trying to branch out from that deathcube flytrap you managed to keep alive, I imagine you'd find a lot of value in your choices being easy-to-read "Mixed easy plants that look something like X" packs instead of being 'species "Variety"' that you need to look up to figure out if you like it and will be able to take care of it...

Or at least that's my take on the matter. I'll go stop telling people who have more experience how to run a seedbank now :?

Oh geez, I realized I asked for bonus mixed rosettes in my SASE! I did say that if I couldn't have mixed rosettes , mixed capes would be fine, but the mixed rosette were preferred. Sorry! I'll definitely understand if I can't have mixed rosettes though.
