Well, I finally gave in and sent in a SASE to Joosa for some of his Proboscidea parvifora var. hohokamiana. The medium sized, white seed arrived today in the mail. I'll be starting a journal based on experiments, experiences, a different journal, and observations.
Day One: Start the Seed:
Today, the seeds came in the mail. A note came with the well-packaged seed. I counted 76 individual seeds. I kept 13 of them, and the rest I am either storing for coming years or trading/ giving away. I filled a small sauce dish from the cabinet with about room temperature tap water (hard as it is) and started a soak around 6:30 PM, PST. As I wright this, most of the seed have already sunk to the bottom.
Countless experiments will be coming. Right now, I've decided to scarify 6 of the seeds, leave six alone, and just keep one without doing much in my family's vegetable patch. Updates coming when available.
(I realized that it was a bit late to start seed, but better late than never!)
(A special thanks to Joosa, for writing a whole guide and just being overall generous, and anybody who's ever put up with my copy-cating... )
