Newborn (fifth one) just drawn out from community pot.

And  all seedlings from the first batch of germinated seeds want already after two months since  germination to escape from the 20 cm liner. They are surely monsters! :o

Kenny,

you're lucky. The last shipments from Dave never arrived in Germany. I'll claim the German customs for this. If they are not clean and the customs officer is a jobsworth they scrap everything. It's madness that you can have kilos of seeds in your suitcase but a small envelope is a danger for them. Hopefully you get some nice plants.

Really, that's sad, there goes more of our freedom. In belgium they are starting to forbid some exotics like my gunnera manicata because it's invasive, but i have to protect it every year from the frost/dead. :s

I just cleaned my Frankies (and all the other seeds DD so kindly sent me :yay:) yesterday afternoon/last night! They're soaking and will go in a baggie on top of my tortoise's enclosure (near the heat and UVB light) very soon. It was fun to go through this thread and see everyone's experiences with the "Frankie eggs" :lol: Those make some gorgeous little seedlings! :wub:

This will be my first time germinating seed using the baggie method since it is winter. Is it okay to use Miracle Gro perlite? I ask because I know it is enriched with Miracle Gro. Will that damage the seed at all? :unsure: It is best to mix sphagnum with the perlite? 

@John hovancsek Look at these beauties! Will share seedlings with ya! *EDIT* Though, guess I shouldn't count my chicks before they hatch! :blink:

    • FREE Dypsis plumosa seed
      By DoomsDave
      Everyone:
      A good friend of mine gave me the seed yield from his mature Dypsis plumosa, and I'd like to share them with you.
      Here's a picture of my mature specimen, which unfortunately had a very small yield this year:

    • Chinese elms of La Habra, California
      By DoomsDave
      I recall a  thread we had a while back by one of our PTers who thought about Chinese elms.
      Here in La Habra, our "urban foresters" have used them a lot and I wish they'd use palms instead.
      Those pictured below are the most common street tree configuration. They rather remind me of aerially inclined snakes, coiling skyward.

    • Free Chamadorea glaucifolia seed!
      By DoomsDave
      I have a nice passel of Chamadorea glaucifolia seeds.
      Free for the asking!
      Please shoot me a private message with "free glaucifolia" in the subject line and I will mail them to you,
      Anywhere on Earth, including cold places. C. glaucifolia is a slender, single-trunked species with fine, gray-green leaves that will take sun but also grow well in the shade. Max height here in California is about 7 feet, though they might get taller. They're relatively hardy, though not as iron-clad as radicalis.
