I was looking around to see if it's possible to buy Diamine Marigold and Carnation separately but unlikely. It's an expensive set if one is not going to use all the colours, so my solution was to request it on MassDrop:

 

I just nominated the Diamine Flowers set of inks for the poll at MassDrop to see if we can team up and get it at a good price. I just love the set, but at US$99 and not all the inks would be used by me, it just seems a little pricey. So if you want, and are interested in getting the Flowers ink set too, please go over to MassDrop click on VOTE, scroll down to Diamine Fountain Pen Inks, and vote!  Thanks!

You may be able to get specific colors directly from Diamine, if you have a set.  The original boxes (at least) had stickers on the back with a ID code, which IIRC were for ordering more.  Not of course that I've done this -- I haven't even tried all the colors because I keep getting sidetracked, and I still have plenty of ink for the ones I *have* tried.  Marigold was one of the "not yet tried" inks; Carnation, OTOH is gorgeous.  I would SO get another bottle if it were available; ditto for Aster, Bougainvillea, and Cornflower (Tulip, not so much -- it was too orange-y a red for me).

Yes, I did read somewhere that you can reorder specific colors from Diamine if you already own a set. Unfortunately I don't already own a set, and am only interested in those 2 colors, so I will have to wait until I find the colors available individually, or if the set becomes available at a really attractive price! :-)
