Oh that goat got slaughtered after a day or two on Eid. But i think arabab did the wise thing. As soon as his vine got big, he ground layered it so that in case he looses one, he has got a backup.

There is another very good approach by some generous members like umar khan. Share your precious plants in form of bulb offsets or cuttings. If you lose your plant, you can still get it from that person who used your cuttings/offsets. ;)

I must say Umar Khan has a superb approach i also believe in propagating plants and spreading them among members so if i do'nt grow a plant one season or am not able to collect its seeds i can request from other members to contribute... excellent :)
