Hi PBS Folks,

I have this nice tuber of Sinningia tubiflora but can't find the e-mail from the nice lady who sent it - who also sent me some Tigridia pavonia seedlings.

My state of organization has been a mess the past couple of weeks for a couple of reasons.  Sorry for my tardiness in getting back.  I need to send this tuber to you!

  Subject: [pbs] "How-to" information on the wiki -- how you can help

  I wanted to let you know that there's now a "how to" section on the wiki.
  The main pages are:

  How to grow bulbs:
  http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/…<http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/…> , and a
  sub-topic on
  How to grow bulbs from seed:

  The seeds one has some wonderful (and very detailed) genus-specific
  germination info compiled by Mary Sue.  I was stunned when I saw it.

  These sections are a start, but they need additional work.  Here's what you
  can do:

  --Fix errors.  The general advice in both sections is biased because the
  author (me) lives in California and writes from his own experience.  You
  should dig in there and correct mistakes, add more info, etc.

  --Add your experiences.  "How to grow bulbs" has a section at the bottom
  where you can add notes on what works in your garden.  Right now it is a
  lonely spot because I am the only contributor; you should come by and add
  your own part here.

  --Add more links.  Mary Sue identified several links to good discussions in
  the PBS Forum, and I added a couple.  But we need more.  You can search the
  archive here:  http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/list.php<http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/list.php>  Remember that
  great note you wrote to the PBS list about ideal soil mixes for aquatic
  bulbs in Arctic climates?  This is your chance to make sure it lives on
  throughout history.

  Links to other great resources on the web would also be useful.
