    OK , now I get the picture...it seems like a lot of effort for limited results, I take it you have some good cheato ? if so the pods will end in the DT on their own

    Hang on untill you get cheato...IMHO , the best breeding ground for pods. You can actually post cheato , so maybe someone in another area could send you a handfull.

    Just wrap in very wet newspaper, ziplock bag , buuble wrap envelope and speedpost :thumbup:
