I am so glad to see an old-fashioned forum. I found this community via a link from a very helpful facebook group member who mentioned you folks share seeds and sprouting tips. I was gifted a bunch of seeds and I'm anxious to start my children right, and now I don't even have to go to facebook for that! (because whooo boy, facebook is a cesspool.)

I have an open-air above-ground pond that has a dedicated CP shelf. Right now, all the potted girls are dormant, and the cp seeds I was gifted are in a dark cool dry location (with the rest of my seeds) until I can get a game plan for germination.

Isn't it nice to have an actual coherent dialogue that can be easily searched and referenced at any time rather than a constant stream of posts on a social media cesspool?!

There are definite upsides to the nested-comment style of some forums, but I've been craving the old-school style for a while, where there's no "wall" or "feed" of garbage that I have to evade before getting to interesting comments. I'm not even that old, but I cut my teeth on forums in the late 90's. This is a breath of fresh air. Thank you!

Welcome! I also prefer forums because you can go back into the archives. Facebook is a mixed bag. Some are very helpful while others will commit your plant to a death sentence lol. It's a fun place and there's a lot of knowledgeable people on here. Hope you enjoy it and if you have any questions about the seeds let us know!

Welcome to the forum!

North Cal is getting some snow/rain now (finally).
Power going out in the snow is not fun, though.
