Hi Folks,

I am ready to talk about hostas too.  Some of these questions are downrigh 
dumb and I know that you have heard them before, please have patience with 

My first question,  do you need to add an s to hosta to make it plural or is 
hosta the plural?

Another question, a friend said that Mary uses Listerine on her seedlings.  
What for?  

Is there a way to get rid of the green slime on the soil around seedlings 
short of picking it off.  Will the algacide that you put into aquariums work. 
 Does the green slime hurt anything?

Do I need to keep the trays of seedlings covered or uncovered, and for how 
long after they sprout will they need to be covered? 

Will heat make the seedlings grow faster?

Will I develop patience as I make this endeavor to germinate seeds, never 
thought I would be doing this.  I am afraid that with the Dorothy Benedict 
that I added to my collection this summer, I will be out playing bee this 
summer too.

With a thirteen year old in the house the button idea may be a better idea 
for me, although considering how much pain bothers him I doubt that he would 
be interested in a tatoo.  

Malcontent and Proud of It,
