    Jimscott, can you give that any more light? They grow in full, blazing (and I mean BLAZING) sun in the wild.
    I don't think the seeds need stratification, but they will need scarfication and/or GA3 soak.

    I've sowed some on 2 separate occasions and can never get them to germinate, but others have had great success (with my lot of seed).

    Um...who's jeannette? Anyway, I think being banned only means you can't post.

    I'd love to give them more light.... just can't right now. They are right at the south facing living room window, under a Grolux light. I'm hoping it will hang on until I can take it outside. What lower temps can it handle?

    Hey, one other thing. How can you receive a PM from someone who is banned from this site?
    I'm not familiar with this Jeanette person..... must not have been around long enough to be noticed.

    I have an ePermit, which allows me to receive "small lots of seeds" from other countries, legally. So I received some Devil's Claw seeds, as well a several Sarracenias from a friend in England.

    I was fortunate to not have butchered this particular seedling whil doing the scarification thing and it surprised the daylights out of me, springing up from my Nep planter.

    If I am further fortunate to bring it to maturity and flowering, I'd be happy to share with others.

    I didn't do any stratifying... just a lot of "butchering" the seeds in scarification. I got lucky!

    Hmm, they're such invasive weeds I would have thought nothing special was needed for seed germination.

    This site says just soak the seeds in warm tap water first:

    This site also lists some sources for seeds.

    Thanks for the site! Mine is Ibicella lutea. How cold can they tolerate? I would like to put it outside ASAP.

    Scraification came recommended to me. I think it is like Morning Glory seeds - scarifciation or soaking.

    Hey jimscott,

    I would imagine Ibicella can't deal with too low of temps, since it's a pretty southern-growing plant (TX/CA desert).

    I think I can send you some Probiscedea lousianica seeds if you want (PM me if interested). They are from Mineral Wells, TX, which gets temps down to the teens in the winter.
