    Pawpaw Seeds

    A wonderful member of this website recently sent me some delicious Pawpaw fruit!
    I would like to give back and offer the pawpaw seeds to all of you.
    I am not looking to trade, these are free. I have about 70 seeds to give away, I will break them up into packs of 10 seeds for the first 7 people who claim them.
    To get the seeds, just reply to this thread and send me a PM to work out the details (you'll have to send a self-addressed-stamped-envelope).
    Thanks!

    In case you were unaware, it's important to never let the seeds dry out. Keep them in some moist sphagnum or something similar.

    oh.. good instructions on how to handle for anyone that would like to try them.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Yep, they are being kept moist.
    Thanks for posting the info Tony Paroubek. There is much info online on their care and growing.

    Who will be the 1st (of 7) to claim their Pawpaw seeds?

    I grow several varieties of pawpaw, the seeds germinate well on pure spag or wrapped in a moist paper towl, aim for 25-30C temps and high humidity, then they will need similar conditions to a nep for the first few weeks (high humidity, bright light), don't put them in full sun until they are atleast 30cm or they will stunt, higher humidity also aids in faster growth, I find 1peat/1sand/2-3 general potting mix works well and osmocote or seasol are appreciated once old enough, they like wet but free draining.
