Ohh I thought only the sarracenias seeds are level required.
Besides the maxsea and sarracenias seeds, do we only have mixed capensis for bonus? I’ve got the mixed capensis for last month so thinking of getting something else.

If I donate some drosera binata seeds, would that make me eligible for maxsea or other bonus?

Well, yes. I think that's how the seed bank works because it says "Or any donor".
Although, I beleive the seeds must reach the seed bank before the request is confirmed by the seed bank manager (aka ChefDean).

Yes it would. If you wanted to donate, just send them with the SASE. We'll leave your request as is pending the incoming donation.
Honestly, I don't think the Maxsea is a big deal, we just want people to look around, ask questions, and learn safe ways to use it before trying it due to how easy it can be to overdo it and harm your plants. Then we all have to shake our heads, cluck our tongues, and reply to the inevitable thread titled, "EMERGENCY! I think I overdid the fertilizer, help me save my plants!".

LOL understando!
I honestly never tried it before so I will definitely read the instruction first. Hopefully I don’t kill my pinguicula with it.
I’ll send the seeds together with the SASE. :D

Sounds good, I'll keep an eye out for them, maybe early next week.
As to the Maxsea, there's no instructions with it, just enough to add to 1 gallon of distilled water. Then lightly foliar feed dews, pings, VFT's, and small Sarrs every two weeks. A little 2 oz spray bottle you can get from Amazon works great.
For bigger Sarrs and Neps, fill a pitcher or two every couple of weeks. A small syringe works good for that. Ask your grocery store pharmacy for one, probably 5 ml. Say your brother just had his wisdom teeth out and they'll usually give you one without any questions.

You can also get the syringes with needles without a sharp point at the craft store. They are used for glue and beads. I think I got 4 for 3 dollars.

I use a fine mist bottle from Amazon when it comes to fertilizing pings and cephalotus. I actually have burnt a crown by overdoing it. Start small with 1/4 tsp per gallon. Factors from different growing conditions can make a BIG difference in what you can get away with.
