    U. humboldtii seed nearly free

    Okay, so for those that are not on the listserv or ICPS forum you may have missed Barry's give away of some of these a month or so ago.

    Well round 2 is here and there are going to be something around ~5000 seed if my math is correct.

    So, here is the deal. $3 for shipping per batch of seed (~25-30/batch). Email me: asplundii (at) gmail (dot) com. If you want in on this deal (if you emailed me earlier about these please do not repeat email me, thanks.) Please include your mailing address in the email. I will reply with the address to send shipping to.

    When I post that there are no more left then that is it and done so please do not ask for more after that point. I can not imagine I am going to get 200+ interested parties but who knows.

    Let the madness begin

    Pyro,
    will these do well in lowland (hot) or lower humidity conditions?
    Thanks.

    I would like in on this deal too Travis please. Emailing you now.

    Do they really germinate as fast as the time laps photography shows that I saw on the photo finder page?

    In The Savage Garden it says "The seed, when released, must immediately be sowed in water or they wil dry out and die. Within twenty-four hours the seedlings germinate as tiny, star-shaped plantlet that grows rapidly"

    If they need to be sown immediately, how do they survive the shipping process? (Or is Peter exaggerating the imperativeness of this)

    That's an important piece of information to know.

    If stored properly they can be stabilized for a while. Barry ships them to me in a manner that keeps them from getting desiccated and I re-ship them in small vials with a damp plug to keep them happy. Occasionally some germinate along the way but as long as they do not dry out they are still viable.

    So, Peter is not exaggerating per say but if you know what you are doing you can get around the odd quirks of the seeds behavior.

    If it reassures you any I have a vial of seed from the last batch (almost a month ago now) and they are still perfectly viable and only 1 has germinated in the vial.
