  Dried out goodies

Phalloid Pholks,

I understand from a few reacions to the Amorph shipments that some species
of which we had only very small offsets, arrived desiccated. I'm sorry to
hear that. There has been some considerable delay after harvesting and I
guess that might have caused it. We will try to get things out sooner next
time.

I found that soaking them overnight in warm water with a couple drops
of Physan 20 (a disinfectant soap) seemed to plump things right up.
I don't know if this has any effect on their viability though.

Yeah one of mine was fairly shrivelled up when it arrived, but i
planted it and watered it gently anyway,

I had a look this eve, and it has plumped up a fair bit, and looks like
its about to poke out a leaf.
(Either that or its gone completely, and i was looking at a small stone
or bit of kak in the compost !!!!)
(Which is entirely possible, the corm was so small!)

And Wilbert, I havn't forgotten about you, payday coming up soon!
