    Re: Nicotiana amplexicaulis

    I requested some too at GRIN through my old University e-mail before I joined this website because I wanted to study some seeds too. Got an e-mail that they declined. So yes, they send you an e-mail back, that's for sure.

    If you are declined, keep an eye out on the forum. Periodically we are allowed to do group requests. Some really fantastic genetics are introduced into the community this way.

    If you get the seed, and actually produce data, they appreciate your writing it up and sending them a copy for their records.

    So they are less reluctant about outside requests? Thats weird seeing how they would have to pay extra postage.

    And yes uni is short for university in Australia.

    Re: Nicotiana amplexicaulis

    Backyard tobacco growers in the US were the greatest offenders in attempting to save a few pennies by requesting GRIN seed for Nicotiana tabacum varieties that were easily available from commercial vendors. The person (one overworked person) at GRIN who fulfilled all these orders was so overwhelmed by the tsunami of requests from your average Joe that she was unable to fill requests from researchers. As a result, for nearly a year, GRIN was closed to all requests.

    So, with the relative popularity of home tobacco growing, GRIN has become more selective in their distributions.

    Dude. That's awesome. If you can, please make sure you produce seed to share if anyone wants it.

    Yes! I was going to add the same response. Do grow, and do collect seed!

    Re: Nicotiana amplexicaulis

    I know that people find it hard to get seed from arsgrn, is there a person I could send them to so that they could be distributed amongst the board? Im in oz so shipping would be too expensive to send out individual packets

    FTT had a own seed-Bank but don't know if it's still active. But I am sure that some members can help you.I living in Sweden and send my tobacco seed like a regular letter pretty much around the world. Perhaps two letter each year doesn't make it.
