Seeds are going out today to those who paid their postage already. :)

For those who didn't spot it, there's a direct PayPal payment link on my classified ad here: freshseeds

Or if it's allowed, the link is: http://paypal.me/freshseeds

Plenty more seeds available, but do remember the seeds are being sent without tracking, as it doesn't really justify triple cost for International.

Time instead, to put our faith in the postal services! 5-7 working days is the estimate from the UK to Worldwide, and 3-5 days to European destinations.

Any tips for germinating this one? Anything to do different vs. more tropical/warmer climate species?

I shouldn't think you'd need any more heat than you have now (58 - 75F in NW Florida?). We've just had a mini heat wave in London that saw about the same temps, and it triggered some R. sapida seeds I've had in a bag for less than 4 weeks. I definitely think the swing in temperature (day/night) was beneficial.

This freebie offer is now closed, so congrats to everyone with seeds! 

The remaining seeds in a bag of soil as I don't think it does them good to 'stew' in their own moisture. Half of the remaining seeds are blackish-looking, as they'd probably been nibbled on the ground, and having cut a few open, some of the embryos look to be turning off-white. So, it's time to get the rest sprouting to see what's left!

Happy growing! :greenthumb:
