As teased before, now comes time for the reveal.
I'd like to thank Shadowtski for his most recent gift. But, before I do, I'm going to rant a little.
He informed me he was planning on sending some seeds, listing three species. I guess the guy still has a sense of humor, perhaps a little twisted, because he sent a total of 60 packs for 10 or more different species. In order to do this, he enlisted the help of two people, Jessye Hale and John Klein of Milwaukee Makerspace. They were complicit in the assist to make more work for me, but also to get these seeds in the seed bank and available to you. And I appreciate it immensely!
Without further ado, here's is what he has shared to our community seed bank.
12 packs of Mixed Rosettes. I don't know exactly what is in it, but he has an excellent collection, so I'm sure they'll be spectacular.
A pack each of D. intermedia (Roraima) and D. intermedia (Cuba).
One pack of D. spatulata (Hong Kong).
Five packs of D. spatulata (Coloane, Macao).
Ten packs of D. "Hercules" x self.
Seven packs of D. aliciae.
Three packs of D. anglica (Alaka'I Swamp)
Nine packs of Drosophyllum lusitanicum.
Last, 11 packs of D. regia.
The regia are from his plants, including "Son of Twister ?", so they might have a greater tendency to wrap up critters. How exciting!
The regia is available to donors only for the next 48 hours, and every eligible member after that. The rest of the seeds are immediately available to all eligible members.
Shadowtski, thank you for your continued generosity.

A *really* nice donation!!!

In another nine months I’ll be qualified for the Regis seeds should some come up and maybe I will be smart enough to germinate and grow them by then. Of course that’s enough time to get another grandkid, too, but my daughters appear to be happy at the current headcount so maybe I can settle for some Regia seeds about then if they’re available…plus sundew seeds aren’t nearly as stinky!!! :lol:

Definitely a very generous donation!!! Thanks Shadowtski, Dean , and the others. Very kind of y’all!!! :)

If no regia seeds are available then, maybe we can work something out for a cutting of mine. A deal for firstborn maybe? As in, you take mine. She's a PITA that I need to get her further away from her boyfriends.
Deal? :lol:

No deal. Been through the boyfriend saga(s). Got the scars. Ran one off from the house one night...I didn't realize his mother was in the vehicle with him at the time, kinda strange he didn't like his picture being taken. Another one, well, ran him off from the house but he ended up marrying my youngest daughter (mother of my three granddaughters!). Learn to eat crow...with a pinch of humility it goes down tolerably....grand younguns help the taste tremendously!!!! :mrgreen:

In the "boyfriend days", eh? Yeah, they're kinda like kittens, only smell worse. Ah well, have fun. You know, boyfriends are fair game for explaining what types of physical torture you are capable of...any judge (with daughters) will be on your side. But, those boys are sneaky. Good luck.(said with a chuckle)

Maybe some other deal that is, I send you my little pinky-finger or something? :lol:
