I had not expected to be so busy at the end of the swap and had a couple of denouement games planned. No time for that, but how about a couple of quick games while packing and sending are taking place?
I'm going to write down a winning number for #1 and #2 and leave it on my desk now. The person who posts a number 1-50 closest to the number I wrote down for each will win a prize, so ideally there will be two different winners. Saturday morning we'll see who won each game. There will be a separate prize for each.

#1 What number did I write down for a prize of 3 seeds for Caesalpinia pulcherrima, Cream? I soaked 2 seeds overnight in warm water on 1/10, sowed them in moist vermiculite using my version of the baggie method (a 10 oz water bottle cut in half, holes in bottom, put in moist planting medium, replace top half sans lid, put on heat mat). When I came home a little while ago I checked and radicles are emerging from both seeds.

#2 What number did I write down for prize of 10 seeds of recently introduced Salvia coccinea 'Summer Jewel Lavender? http://www.fbts.com/salvia-coc...

Good luck!

So, is this a number for how many days until they germinated? I'm confused. Confused

No. Just a random number between 1 and 50. I've already written down the numbers for each game.

That germination info was just in case someone was curious about the Pride of Barbados seeds.

For #1 or #2?
You are guessing a number for each pack. I'm sorry this was confusing. That's what happens when I hurry I guess.

There are two games going on at the same time.
For #1 guess a number between 1 and 50.

For #2 guess a number between 1 and 50.

I wrote down separate numbers for each one so the same person does not (or probably won't) win both prizes.

I can't remember the exact numbers so I'm not sure if anyone has guessed either of them exactly, but some of you are very close.
I'm on a slow and unfamiliar computer, but I wanted to post a correction.
The Pride of Barbados offered here is not the cream one, it was collected from the pink. Sorry about the mix up. I offered the cream in the swap. The pink is the one I just sowed. I had other things on my mind yesterday. Confused https://toptropicals.com/catal...
