1. Thepitchergrower
2. TrapsAndDews - And in case you’re wondering, I didn’t yet kill the pygmies that I just received.
3. Ewreck I always thought elephants were pretty cool
4. Huntsmanshorn I've never tried "long in the tooth" gemmae before. Should be interesting.

Just as a heads up, the pack I sowed due to mold has sprouted and has first carnivorous leaves. It appears to have about a 75% germination rate. This pack that is being given away has no mold, it's just getting on in age.

I am pulling my name out of the giveaway, because I would rather give someone else a chance with the gemmae. Here’s the list now:

1. Thepitchergrower
2. Ewreck I always thought elephants were pretty cool
3. Huntsmanshorn I've never tried "long in the tooth" gemmae before. Should be interesting.

I've received them potted in a peat/sand mix, and I've grown them in peat/perlite/LFSM mixes and pure LFSM. They're pretty versatile, but I want to say they did slightly better in the peat/sand mix.

Don't know about hard, but this is my second time growing them. The first time I cooked the gemmae. Here are some links about growing pygmies:
