Hello Mary Sue, I have a few species and am trying to acquire more. I have a
connection with UConn where they have some unidentified species but are
still trying to up the numbers before sharing. I hope to get some of those
when they are available. I gro them under lights and they seem to do quite
well. This is a big reason why I would like more of this great Genus.
Cheers, Glen
