    I've cross pollinating the cacti I'm raising for thorn because I want some deco vanilla. But in addition to vanilla seeds, I'm also getting Elephant Ear and Poppy seeds... what the heck is going on here?

    yah, I just started crossings, so didn't know about this... had four blue barrrels, crossed two with yellow barrel and two with red and got four different seeds, none of them vanilla plants

    sheeeeesh:confused:


    [edit] alright, seems to be one of those 'ahh crap' moments... in reading thru the other thread it appears that the cactus need to be bright?
