Thanks to Dell, Steve, and Karl, we have a seed and bulb exchange that allows me to cheaply acquire interesting species that I would be hard pressed to find easily (and as cheap) anywhere else! I am sure I speak for many by saying how appreciative I am of the time they are volunteering. I can't even imagine how I would find the time to do what they do.

One incident has turned into a source of pride for me. Steve made a mistake with one of my recent seed requests (note I said request, not order) where a species of Arisaema was sent instead of whatever I had requested. At first I was disappointed, but then excited at the prospect of trying something new! I had always wanted to try an Arisaema, but never brought myself to request it. My accidentally acquired seeds of Arisaema heterophyllum have had nearly 100% germ, the little seedlings are very vigorous! They bring me joy, the entire point of all this, all thanks to Steve's mistake.
