Hi, all. For a number of years we have included Marsilea sporocarps in
our Intro Bio development lab. We got them from Connecticut Valley and
they all worked perfectly, with the gelatinous ring emerging within
minutes and small plants within a few days. CV stopped carrying them so
I ordered from Carolina. These were clearly from a different species
(over twice as large and hairy vs half the size of an apple seed and
smooth) and none of them worked,  including the replacements Carolina
sent when I complained. Do any of you know of other suppliers? I hate to
give up anything to do with plants: there is little enough of that in
the labs already. Thanks for any help.
Cheers,  Sue Schenk
