    Seed giveaway, Proboscidea parviflora var hohokamiana

    I just harvested a whole bunch of Devil's Claw seed pods and have a bunch of extra seed now, I've promised some out already but I don't see why I shouldn't be able to come up with packs for at least 2 more people.

    Shipping is on me, but could anyone recommend the best way to go about that, these seeds are kinda large, around sunflower seed size. I'm not sure that a regular envelope would cut it. Would a bubble mailer envelope be my best choice?

    Minimum 50 posts, also understand how to germinate these seeds. Apparently, it can be quite difficult sometimes, I suppose if not done right? Per Johnny's recommendation, and it worked wonderfully, I soaked mine overnight in water and then used the tip of a knife to carefully nick/peel the outer layer a bit and expose the inner seed. Sow outdoors in spring.

    Standard numbered list.

    Well the winner is jimscott I guess! Shoot me a PM with shipping info, I probably won't make it to the PO till next week, maybe Saturday. I've had a lot going on, but that should subside on Friday.

    I don't think the guidelines were all that strict but I may open this up to anyone in a new thread once I send out everything I need to. I'll see whats leftover.

    Congrats to the winner! I would have loved to join, however my yard couldnt sustain these plants because light levels are just too low.
    Such an interesting genus..

    I don't know where the name comes from. I just knew it as the var. with white seeds.

    I found this:
    The plants from the desert have white seeds with claws that are greater than 18cm long and have been called var. hohokamiana.
