How do I work the Seed Bank? I just came across it and It seems very cool. Do you guys just ship them out to people? I saw some people mention some cool types of dew’s from seeds on there i’d pay for if needed.
Go to the seed bank and look at the inventory of seeds....scroll all the way to the bottom of that message and you will find instructions.
Being new you are eligible for seeds in "Tier 0". I would probably go for one of the d. capensis varieties.
You an also request a "Bonus". In the same forum, but up at the top of the thread listings you will see a thread titled "May Bonus" you can select a seed from that post. The mixed drosera probably contains mostly rosette-type sundews...small and low-growing (but cool)...there might be some filiformis in there, too, I guess. The mixed-fliformis (threadleaf) are tall, with thin grass-like leaves...much larger plants than the rosettes
Lastly, ChefDean has been trying to corner the market on D. intermedia and he has just about succeeded only to find his three city blocks of warehouse space is filled to the max. Thus, you can also request D. intermedia seeds as an extra.
So...an order could include:
1 - Selection from "Tier 0"
1 - Bonus selection
1 - "extra" selection of D. intermedia.
Simply post a new thread in the seed bank forum requesting the seeds you want. Chef will private message you the address to mail a SASE (self-addressed-stamped-envelope) to. Address one envelope with your name and address both in the return address and the recipient address...put a stamp on it. Address another envelope to him and show his address as the return address. Now, fold up the envelope with your name on it so that it will fit inside the envelope addressed to Chef. Stick a stamp on the envelope for Chef and stick'er in the mail.
He will notify you about the status of your request and let you know when it's heading your way. If you really want to show Chef gratitude for all the hard work that he does keeping the seed bank running you can always send him small kittens. He rescues and breeds them. He's won several nationally televised cat shows. His close friends refer to him as "Kitty".
I hope this helps.
ETA: Panman has already directed you to read the instructions...but I'm sending this on, too!
