Ella, my Plecanthus is doing fine. In fact I just potted them up. 9 of them I think. I will save seeds for you. I plan on sending three to my daughter in MI.

I have a lot of seeds from the trade I feel horrible about because I used the fine vermiculite and they didn't germinate. I hate wasting seeds like that! But I still have a lot to plant and a lot already growing so I can't dwell on it. My greenhouse at the farm is full of babies waiting to go out but I am waiting until next weekend.

We had to go to MD in March for a funeral, MI two weeks ago for a funeral then back to MI for a week's visit with my daughter so I have been gone a lot. It's surprising none of my babies died from that, just the HEAVINESS of the fine vermiculite. But now I'm home with hopefully no more travels and can try and get going on this again.

If anyone has any advice on Mrs. Wilmot's Ghost erygnium(sp) I could use help. Twice I have tried to sow, once outside in fall, once winter sowing and Jen tried WS last year for me too. NOTHING!!! How did she get them all to volunteer when she spread them is what I'd like to know when I can't for the life of me get them to germinate!!!
