Really, these are real, real, real bad seeds. You don't really want them. All they'll do is grow big traps that you end up feeding expensive things to (think some of that Japanese beef or Maine lobster...possibly even Russian caviar and think how expensive that would be!!! ) or you'll spend all your time trekking the yard and garden catching bugs to feed. Besides, these seeds need aging to perfection. By my calculations they need *at least* another month and a half to age (like a fine wine) at the location they're currently at...yeah, a month and a half....(lets see, yeah I've got another month and a week to go before I get to Tier 2). So yeah, do *not* put a request in for this until roughly 6 or 7 weeks from now. Trust me, I would not lead you wrong!!!!
This was just the first harvest, there are still pods cooking. I can't guarantee they'll take their time (six or seven weeks), but you and I can always come to a gentleman's agreement, complete with a spit in the palm handshake, to get you some if you really want to try VFT from seed. (They are painfully slow from seed)
Dean, you ever seen a kitten grab a giant catfish head and drag it away, growling and snarling like a 35-pound bobcat at any creature that dares get within striking distance of it? I'm kinda like that, I gotta be careful not to bite off more than I can chew.
Lack of cool growing conditions right now *definitely* is gonna hold me back on a few things. Plus, being the CP addict that I'm slowly becoming (it is disease, I tell ya!), I've got two pots of of some VTF seeds from hollyhock planted (25 seeds each pot) with about a 40% germination rate currently at 19 days planted. Then there's the fresh mixed seeds I got from Matt that I haven't planted any of yet.
So, I'm good...though I do have some spare pots, lots of peat moss and perlite, little good sense left, and a penchant for counting tiny little green specks of vegetation in a damp pot.
Having said all of that...a spit in the palm handshake deal is *much* better than the ol' blood oath.
Let's see where we're at in six or seven weeks!
Oh, and yeah...those green specks grow miiiiiggggghhhhhhtttttttttyyyyyyyy slooooooooooooooow!!!!!!!!!!!!
