    I'd like 5 seeds! (I don't have anything to trade though, sorry. ^_^

    Also, do you think they would survive being in the fridge until next...May or something? It won't still be hot enough for very much longer here so I'm not sure they'd survive the winter.

    There are still plenty of seeds left, but because everyone is asking for small numbers, it makes me think that you want 5 or 6 pods, which I am not offering. I am trading/giving away the seeds, not the pods. If you asking for seeds, bigger numbers like 20 will give you a higher chance of success.

    ChronoKiento= The seeds would probably last in the fridge, but you could plant them in a pot right now, and then plant them in the ground in May if you want to.

    But I thought they needed a lot of heat to germinate? BTW, I'll take 20 seeds if you think it's be better success. I really don't know how hard they are to germinate. Can you post some instructions on how to germinate them? I know you have to pour boiling water over them. Does that mean I could just pour the water over them and then plant them without extreme heat and they'll survive the winter as a windowsill plant?

    I don't know how to germinate the seeds because I don't actually grow them. I found these in one of the pastures on my ranch. The answer to ChronoKiento's question is at this site. It says:

I then sealed the cup an put it in the refrigerator for 2 weeks, then took it out and put it in a warm place. After about another week the seeds germinated and I transplanted them to pots.You must plant these in the Summer since they will only grow when very
    warm. The seed lasts many years, so wait for warmer times.

    Nice! I don't have gibberelic acid but boiling water being poured over them apparently works. I'll store them in the fridge until May then. Thanks!

    I picked three more pods today which added 140 seeds to the total. So, now there are 411 seeds for trade or SASE.

    I didn't add this in the first post, but I will also trade for aquarium plants like Crystalwort (riccia grass), Marimo moss balls, or Dwarf Lily bulbs.
