I have a Begonia luxurians plant which is about 12 feet tall and produces tons of seeds. So I have more seeds than I can easily deal with. I gave a huge number to the American Begonia Society Seed fund. These are mainly seeds that were harvested after that point.
Here's the deal. Since Begonia seeds are tiny, and avoid the USPS rollers, they can be sent in regular envelopes, without padding. The cost to me is one stamp, or 49 cents.
I'll send out seeds if someone does one of the following:
A) Sends me a 49 cent stamp (ask for my address).
B) Sends me some carnivorous plant seeds of some sort.
C) Immediately (or close to it) starts a giveaway of some sort, postage required as appropriate.
This is entirely honor system, as I'll send seeds when I get your address.
I'm particularly looking for Nepenthes seeds of some sort to play with: fresh, preferably from one's own plants. For someone who can send such seeds, I'll expand the choices, and include seeds such as Rojasianthe suberba (white sunflower tree), Lotus jacobaeus (black lotus), Passiflora antioquiensis and/or Passiflora membranacea variegated, plus others... for particularly interesting seeds, I could always expand the choices to include cuttings, seedlings, plants, etc. a very long list...
In case you are not familiar with Begonia luxurians, here's my plant a couple years, ago, while still "small". It looks nicer without the stakes, however I had a bad experience with wind or animals knocking my plant down:
Here are the seeds. These are from inflorescence #8, which indicates how many of these I've collected. I have not actually tested this set, so I would really appreciate hearing back when viability is seen (or not, although unlikely). I have no feedback on these, but I have no reason to expect they would not be viable. They were harvested towards the end of last year.
I zoomed in on the ziploc bag which might have the fewest seeds, so you can see how many there are. I may add to this one, but there are hundreds in each:
Because the seeds are untested for viability, I'll add a second bag, with fewer seeds, of seeds that I know are viable (also from last Fall).
I have other seeds, that are tiny, and ship without padding. I can add one of the following (while they last, I think the only one that's in danger of running out is the B. dregei): Begonia dregei (bonsai Begonia), Begonia fusca (huge leaves), Begonia venosa (scented flowers), Petunia exserta (only naturally red Petunia, only hummingbird pollinated), Nicotiana mutabilis (changes color as flowers age). The B. fusca and B. venosa are from friends, 2014, and have been germinating fine. P. exerta is from 2013, my plant, and I expect they are still viable. I have not tested N. mutabilis (2013) for viability.
Begonia seeds are surface sown, in an enclosed environment to maintain high humidity. Here's a thread that describes some I grew last year:
I would caution not to start more than about 50 at a time.
So it probably makes sense to start a list. Obviously eliminate the (0) entry:
0) "name", "other seed (see just above)"
And message me your address at the same time.
