DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Seed Storage

I am keeping my seeds in a small plastic bag in the refrigerator. I don't know if this is the best, but for most seeds it is. I have read this is the best way to store them for longevity.

Germination

These seeds germinate really easily as with most grass seeds. Spread them on the soil,and bury them a little bit. I rub my hand across the soil mixing them, and burying them in the soil a little bit. It is important to water the seeds often enough to make sure the soil does not dry up. You cannot over water this type of grass so be generous with the water at the begging.

General

In order to increase alkaloid content, you want to fertilize them with a high nitrogen soil (urea is great!) but otherwise have them in poor soil. Shading, cutting, and drought also increase alkaloid content in the plants.

Harvesting the plant material: Once they have reached the stage at which you want to harvest them, cut the grass down, and let it grow back. After the grass has been cut, you want to put it in ideal conditions for a few days to get it growing again.

Picture 1

The seeds are just starting to sprout. This is a picture of some of the first sprouts.

Picture 2

All of the seeds have sprouted, they are growing pretty fast and I have transplanted some dormant Phalaris Arundinacea var. Picta grass into some yogurt cans and are just starting to get some small leafs.
