NARGS SEED EXCHANGE
« on: March 16, 2022, 10:58:09 PM »
I just got my second round seed order [100 packets] 92 of them from my first choice list!
I am quite thrilled! many of them are rare or hard to locate .  I will need to wait 2 or 3 weeks to start them; because, I already have seedlings of 193 species growing under lights indoors [mostly from the NARGS and PBS exchanges]. I have nearly .8 acre and I am having to mow less and less of it.
I also have 4 flats of seeds not sprouted either under lights, under the bed, or in the fridge.
I mentioned earlier, in the Gesneriad forum, that indoor plants don't do well for me because I use wood heat. We have 2 bathrooms one of which is unused. I start my seeds on plywood shelves, with LED grow lights, suspended over the unused bathtub full of water.  a cold water humidifier is rigged to automatically  refill itself and runs continually.

Especially this year, there were a plethora of really nice seed selections in the second round of NARGS seed.  I think I ordered 50.  Good to know I'll be getting them soon.
