    Cephalotus seeds available.

    Much to my surprise, three of my Cephalotus produced some seed this year. I cut off the flower scapes this morning and was about to toss them out but noticed a few blooms appeared to have made seed. It turns out there was quite a bit of seed there!

    I'm going to offer two lots of at least 12 seeds to random recipients. The only qualification is that the recipient must be "green" members (IE: paid memberships).

    I will probably select the two winners by nine AM tomorrow (Monday) morning, so I can get these in the mail promptly. Good luck.

    PS: no SASE required, shipping is gratis.

    In case you need it, instructions for stratifying and germinating Cephalous seed can be found here: http://www.carnivorousplants.org/how...Cephalotus.php

    Sundays can be sluggish around here sometimes. Give it a few days. Although, I kept my last one up for a week and only had 2 takers.

    Yup. I've been thinking all of my future giveaways are going to be for paid members only.

    I still have some space with the other seed trays if you don't get any other takers. I already got a batch from a TF'er this year so put me low on the list to allow others the chance to try them from seed.
