Re: Alvim Seidel Philodendron seeds - questions
From: Todd Ruth <truth at weber.ucsd.edu> on 1997.03.14 at 19:12:05(499)|
Giving Alvim Siedel the benefit of the doubt - that they are
confident that they have for example 2 different sets of plants,
one made up of undulatums and one made up of eichleris, what
would give them this impression? I would ask them, but it appears
that I can't overcome the language barrier. Do they probably have
2 sets of identical plants and charge $35 for seeds from one group
and $50 for seeds from the other? Perhaps one group is actually
hybrids? The same question goes for the 6 potential varieties of
bipinnatifidum on the list and any other "duplicates". I know
Tom Croat is looking into this and a few others mentioned that
they were doing homework of some sort - any input anyone?
