Zamia angustifolia seeds.
I have some fresh Z. angustifolia seed harvested about 3 days ago here in SW Florida. It was hand pollinated with no other Zamias within 100 yards. There are about 40 seeds, give or take a couple. I would like to get $60 including shipping in the US. Message me on here if you would like them.

Digging Lepidozamia peroffsyiana
I have one of these, and I want to dig and possibly re-home it.
The caudex is about 12" (30 cm) across, leaves about 8 feet (3 M) long.
How deep does the taproot, if any, go?
Trying to create an Albizia hybrid
I will be trying to create a hybrid of Albizia lebbeck x Albizia julbrissin. They are both the same species and I guess they have the same chromosomes, but that will be determined when Its done. I live in zone 7b so I'll just take the lebbeck outside during spring and summer. To ensure pollination is successful, I will hand pollinate the lebbeck with juli. and vice versa. I also know that these 2 species are very invasive in the US and I will eradicate if the hybridization is successful. If that goes as plan, I will try to hybridize Albizia coreana (syn kalkora, or vice versa) with an Albizia species that isn't invasive. Coreana is pretty hardy (to zone 5b to 6a) which is probably the most cold hardy albizia species. This will probably take me around I'd guess 2-3 years. Updates will be posted.
Hybrid palm in Hardee County , Florida
By Bill H2DB
Venerable old Hybrid , that luckily was spared when the Citrus Grove was expanded .
This had been a home site , and the palm was surrounded by Oaks .
I first saw this palm in about 1976 , so it has gone through a lot .
