    Cephalotus seeds - fyi

    All year long (& out-of-season for N. America), I see people posting, looking for Cephalotus seeds. I gave a head's-up in Big Bella's thread a few days ago & they are now available in the ICPS seedbank. They even made it outside the special seed-donor-only section and are available to all members.

    These are fresh seeds just harvested from several of my HG cephs so they have some good genes behind them.
    All the best,
    Ron

    Ron, a fantastic effort! Depending upon my harvest goes in the coming weeks, I'll follow suit!

    Thanks for the headsup on the seeds.

    I have always been intrigued by the looks of cephs since I visited Charles Brewer 15 years or so ago and saw his grow room in the garage (could have been 20 years).

    Back when I had a 12' x 24' greenhouse full of species orchids I tried growing one I bought as a mature plant in a 8" pot($$$$$) at an orchid show in D.C. Took me a little over 6 months to kill it.

    Hopefully now that I have no greenhouse, am growing under lights, and only have cp's( most of them seedlings less than 3 months old) I can better attend to their individual special needs.

    Just now ordered some seeds.

    Wow! They're gone. That was quick. (15 packets in a day)

    I'm still collecting so there will be at least one more shipment ...

    It's a shame that I couldn't get more seed with all those stalks.** Two stalks were attacked by aphids - they cratered one before I noticed and the 2nd I have saved by being super vigilant but it doesn't take many aphids to screw them up. Also had some other stalks abort with the 100+ temps we had a few weeks ago (I guess I'm lucky that the plants didn't croak).

    ** just did a quick calculation - I've harvested about 550 seeds so far (not all to the seedbank as I had to fulfill some other commitments 1st).
    All the best,
    Ron

    Watch the seedbank as I just mailed another bunch of seeds (~730). I suspect that there will be enough for many to get some this time around (as long as they don't wait too long).

    My harvest is now 98% complete - so no more seeds from me for another year... I'm hopeful that a few of my other clones (Czech Giant & HG progeny) will flower next year so I can play around trying to cross them.
    All the best,
    Ron
