Thanks for the fun little game! It was a nice distraction.

Sorry to hear that Jabba. Let us know if there are any plants you are looking for or trying to replace. I'm not big into Plinia, but if I have anything I can send you some plants or at least scions. I'm sure a lot of other people would want to help as well.
Every season I worry we will get hit bad... Hope everyone else is doing ok.

Pg. - 333   Arvores Brasileiras Lorenzi volume 3

Is that helpful? You can look in a library buy it or if you can't find a copy then you can easily find a PDF online...

You both are awesome and have done much more than most of us here could (or would) to get new species in the US at affordable prices. Happy to support you in your endeavor!!

To the people who won: sorry for shipping delay. This week is midterms/finals so Iím a bit busy will try to get them out before the end of the week! Thanks for understanding!

No rush, Ryan. The mail will probably be useless in Florida until next week. Best of luck on finals!

Everything looks outstanding! So many seeds were already germinating. You have outdone yourself yet again!!

Outstanding job!! Congrats!!!

Website glitch is now fixed if anyone is interested

Website is still not working. Waiting on a response via email from him

Just received my seeds today and everything is in excellent shape! Thank you for making these available to us all at such great prices!!

It seems like only yesterday that you couldn't get a species going here with good genetic variation for under a grand...

I have faith you! I also tutor college bio and a few other sciences if you ever need help just ask.

Following.  Annie's annuals and perennials used to have them, but, not anymore.  Have been looking for a plant and can't find one anywhere.

I saw that they had them a while ago, but then the trail went cold again. Let me know if you happen upon any.

I also have ordered many seeds of this and never had a sprout

I had 3 out of 150 or so sprout and they lived for a little while. I realized all to I late that I had them growing in the wrong media mix...they died a few months later. Live and learn I guess.

Is anyone growing Tortoise Berry (Muraltia spinosa, Nylandtia spinosa)??

I know where to get seeds, but they are not usually viable and my luck with them has been abismal. I would like to find a few plants and am willing to trade. I have a mostly random assortment of rare species. Tortoise Berry is reportedly invasive on the California coast and was introduced to stop erosion as I recall. Please PM if you have this.

palologrower has some. Quality plants.

I second that. Richard is a really great seller and has them occasionally. Best of luck on your quest.

Scarify and soak seeds for a few hours in water before sowing.

Should be 80 - 90% germ. Seeds store fairly well for over a year at least.

Great price for this species! Definitely one of the best seed sellers on this forum.

Awesome! I would be down to get a couple more species from Andre as well if he has anything else new. Customs would have made a note of it if they took them...even if to was for their secret garden. You joke about that, but I have seen 19 year servicemembers throw their retirement away for less. You can retire at 20 years of active service in the military.

I got my package and the insects were deemed to be of no concern. 

They destroyed 2 packages of Eugenias that I had that had germinated, although I had gotten packages of Mouriri that were SUPER germinated and they had no issue.  I'm pretty sure Eugenias require the next level plant importation certificate while, Mouriri, which is unlisted is permissable to be imported in with the seed permits.   Not entirely sure, but I'm gonna find out.
all of our eugenias came, even though all were starting to germinate.
Edit: we only ordered 2 types of eugenias - e.sulcatta, and e.pyriformis

Everything but the E. angustissima... The wound is still fresh. Lol

I would also be interested in knowing the various altitudes and climates people are growing and fruiting tropical fruit trees at...
