    I thought the spider tree seeds only came from monsters, and the as the trees were 'sterile' mutants, they didn't produce seeds. So I was a bit baffled when, after cross-pollinating a lot of ordinary yellow plants to get bright yellow variants, some of the resulting seeds turned out to be 'bright yellow spider tree' seeds! Sadly, I didn't notice which cross-breeds resulted in these, so I have a lot of testing to do to find out if it's a 'reliable' route to get the seeds....

    Also, I've started growing a batch of the bright yellow spider trees - and right from being planted, all of them are showing that they have 0/8 seeds and the indicator for pollination is at the 'too early' stage. Surely both are normally crossed out for 'mutant' plants?

    What have people been charging for these types of plants? I haven't really seen any for sale on Chesapeake.

    Thank you for the offer, but I'm on Europa - so it's time for me to organise myself and get my gardener to work ;)
