This is in a 2 gallon pot. Seeds were planted mid November 2017.

Nice!

Anyone in Sydney or near one of the other big trees of this have access to seeds?  I got a few off ebay a couple of years back no idea if they were the real deal, and they had rotten in transit anyway.

I bought three small seedlings from (I believe) the big tree in Sidney...had them mailed, and now they are kicking butt on my back patio and putting on some size. Still small but getting beefier. I hunted and hunted and couldn't find seeds for years. I will let you know if I come across some. Chris

The big Sydney one is real and seeds were sent to Brazil from it more than once.I received seeds from brazil and Sydney a few years ago and none germinated.

Did you buy them off ebay?  (I remember there was a seller who had listed them.)
