Default Spring 2013 Flask Project Sign Up and Sources

For the spring project we'll be growing plants from flask. If possible folks should get a phaeanopsis flask, however others are acceptable.

The actual project thread, where you can discuss and grow your flasks once you have them is here

This thread is to sign up for the project

It's also to sugest sources for flasks (as we get going I'll add to the list below), and you can use it to discuss flask shares if you like.

I'm in. I have several flasks on order already.

---------- Post added at 05:04 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:53 PM ----------

As FYI, here are the instructions for ordering flasks from Meyers.

https://lab.troymeyers.com/flasking/...ow-To-Purchase

I love his plants, but please note these are not in stock quick turn around. He makes the flask upon your reservation request. Sometimes you can wait for a year or longer. His quick turn flasks are listed on the main flasking page.

---------- Post added at 05:05 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:04 PM ----------

Here is the list ... I will add you to the distro so you will get the new
list as they become available. Some maybe sold out, and some are probably
sent to my contract grower.
I'll let you know

FLASK/TUB: Average about 20-25 plants, but I will guarantee 15.
Flasks from this list will be shipped from my lab, with cotton stuffed
inside the tub (keep plantlets stabled during transition) in clean
environment, so you don't have to deflask right away.
Advance/wholesales growers - If you order more than 5 flasks, I can have the
lab deflask, rinse, fungicide treated and dried out the plantlets, ship in
cotton upon request.

****Paypal customers!! - If you prefer to paypal, please use send
money/personal/money owe or gift. This way they don't charge me a
transaction fee like they do on ebay/paypal purchase. Small grower with
small profit margin, 4% paid to paypal is a little bit stiff for me, thank
you. Otherwise I can certainly wait for a check******
