For the people who I shipped to My local post office is pretty sad.....
Some of the packages maybe delivered with 25 cents postage due
The carrier and postmaster don't seem to know what they are charging to ship this week.....

Sorry for any problems

Mike, got my seeds Friday in good shape. Shipment was fast, seeds are clean, and look good and are packed properly for those that have not ordered. Please Mike, if you can, let us know how long these seed should be held before actually planting? I refer here to an article by Tom Broome http://www.plantapal...lture/seeds.htm
This write up says " As a general rule, most embryos will become mature approximately 12 months after the initial pollination occurs". In other words, the seed embryos grow inside the seed even after harvest. Planting too soon can be bad. So far I have had better results with "Cycas" cycads by waiting before planting, for the embryos to mature. If you are not sure about when to plant these seed that is perfectly understandable. In that case a guess at the date of pollination would help. (I would then just plant them one year later). Thanks for this rare cross. Can't wait to try them.

I would hold these seeds for about 2 months before planting

Working on seedling pictures my phone really sucks for pictures...

The seedlings look alot like revoluta but almost all have split by the 3 or fourth leaf
I did but a batch of seeds from RPS rev x deb that are obviously straight debaoensis

Thanks for that info and the seeds Mike. I will plant around the 10th of June. Until then the seeds will be kept inside and in the bag they were shipped in (with woodchips) and with just a tiny bit of moisture added every month or so. I have had great luck keeping clean seeds like this not damp to the touch, but not letting the air inside their storage bag dry out either.

I figured I'd cut open one of the revXdeb seeds to check on their development. Looks like good embryo development. One or two months away from planting. Very good seed quality.

Got my seeds todays, they look nice and clean.
Ive had good luck placing cycad seeds in coco fiber, in a zip lock, It has very little moisture straight out the bag, but does have some so you dont have to wet it like peat, keeps the seeds insulated and they sprout in there when they are ready. You couldnt sqeeze any water out of it, Its works very good at not rotting any seed, Just watch out soil gnats love it.

Dear All,

I don't have the patience of you seed germinators so I made a request of Mike. He sold me two three year old plants and took great care in shipping them to me. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL and as advertised. They are going to be planted this weekend.

THANKS Mike
