A sudden change of mind??? (;-))

If tissue culture is dubious then I'm proud of being able to do this
dubious things. Otherwise I do not right understand what a large
scale propagation by "high tech" has to do with Victorian-style plant
hunting??? Who the hell hunts his in vitro stuff??? I usually go to
the basement working all night at my laminar flow which I had to buy
from my money (no support!). Usually the plants sit in their flasks
and are quite easy to remove without any need to hunt them.
I'm looking foreward receiving an explanation!

None of us is University supported!
Please try to find out more exactly what people you offend really do
before flaming them in the public!

> ..Michael

If somebody searches for a plant I am able to supply either by
_trade_ or sale, shall I ask a friend:
"Hey could you write a message, telling that I have these things for
trade (or aso sale)" instead of doing this myself.
I regard this as childish.
As a consequence you'll have to ban all informations on CP sources
from this list. I think I am right that one aspect reading such lists
for many people is getting infos where to _trade_ _or_ _buy_ CP's (in
our case) or other stuff.

All the best
