Good idea.  I'd be interested, depending on what plants are available.
I'm in the market for for relatively slow-glowing, medium-ligh plants.
Do you know if they will let you order specific plants?  The ads in
FAMA say that Horizon will pick the plants.

Dave, this is a bit strong.  I see you have been hurt by some possibly
unwarranted email, but letting off steam on this list could trigger a
flame war.

This list has polite till now, and I intend to keep it that way.
Anyone doing any mud-slinging, either as a follow-up to Dave's
message, or in any subsequent messages, will be removed from the list.
I will update the charter to make this explicit.

Let us talk plants.
