My FTS OP crop didn't do so great, and I'm losing faith in my B52 self-pollination attempt... So I guess it's time to call in support on my quest to raise traps from seed :D

That's what I'm hoping too - And anyway I did share my FTS OPs, so I'm not too torn up about them given their age (Karenwithakay seems to have a better environment for germinating seeds than I do...). Thanks for the good wishes!

I only got about 25% germination with the FTS OP. It is important to note for anyone reading this in the future, the reason that the seeds were given to the seed bank is that Matt did not feel they would give a good enough germination rate to sell.

I think you did a little better than me, but not by much. Matt donated the seeds to the bank because he wasn't happy with the germination rate, and they were pretty old regardless...

Like I said, it's not like I'm torn up over the OPs - Honestly, my plan was to screw up with those and then plant some B52 x self's from my own plants - Which went sideways because my B52 doesn't look like it wants to do much seed-setting, so plan B it is...

This request is at the two week point. If confirmation of the SASE being sent isn't made within the next couple of days, the request could be canceled and the seeds returned to inventory.

Well, now I'm conflicted! On one hand you asked me to remind you we talked about it if you mentioned two weeks, on the other hand today was the day I'm ready to go anyway... :lol:

SASE is in the mailbox. Should get picked up and sent on its way with tomorrow's mail.

Don't be conflicted. I get so much correspondence that it's difficult to keep track of every conversation. That's why I asked you to remind me we communicated about the delay already.
Your request won't be canceled, I'll watch for your SASE. Thank you.

Don't worry about it! Like I said, it was ready today anyway :D

And no, thank you! This place wouldn't be the same without all the work that goes into the seedbank.
