    Wow, those are awesome! The viability is not long for these, is it? Even mailing them might doom them.
    I got a couple of tiny plants once, but they did not make it a week after being shipped from Europe.
    What do you grow the parent plant(s) in?

    Regards,

    Joe

    I grow them in pure live sphagnum, in deep water. the seeds germinate almost immediately you sow them!

    Does U. nelumbifolia need any help to set seed? does it self or do you need to cross two clones? Not that my clone (soon to be two [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] ) is big enough to flower, but it is well to know these things in advance, and I'm curious too.

    Cheers

    I dont know if they set themselves, as I self-pollinate mine with a wooden toothpick, quite easy as the flowers are so large!

    Nice photo Steve - was that the Ricoh again? However, if your plants have ready-to-sprout roots, it must be some kind of mutant. I think posting seeds in water in a film canister is OK, as they can start germinating, although from Europe to the USA might take too long. This species doesn't need to be that big to flower, as I've had a fairly small seed-grown plant send up a flower scape. It's pretty adaptable as to compost - peat & sand is OK, but the stolons into the water tray always do well growing underneath all the other pots.
