I think my agar had a little too long to set by the time I got to it, or the mix was off as it was really stiff to work with and I did a lot of damage to one of the leaves tryin to get the leaf into the agar. Getting somewhat in definately seems to have made a difference!

Robert... give it a few months and you might have a few hundred AVs coming your way ;)
Best, Corey

I took some out of TC a month ago! All growing well - I might bring a sample or two to the upcoming GWAPA meeting :)

Ours are growing great, but no flowers yet... In fact, my mother-in-law noticed them over the weekend, and liked the look of the leaves compared to some she has. :-p

Sweet! I have more where those came from - wondering what I'm going to do with them all! I might not make the next GWAPA meeting - but if someone (Jen) can pick them up prior to the meeting, I'll be more than glad to give some more away. You can grab a couple for your mother-in-law!
