Smiling This is my favorite method for collecting seeds from Euphorbia Lovey dubby species and other succulents I grow. Though, I've been making my own bags from tulle Sighing! . Never thought of buying premade bags. Thanks for the link! Thank You!

I admire anyone with the inventiveness and craftsmanship to make their own whatever... and that includes bags for protecting their seeds or pollen! Thumbs up
