You're probably one of a.very few growing this one.  RPS has seed but dang those are pricey!!!!  Keep this thread updated as they grow if you plan on keeping a couple in your collection.

I believe a handful of growers in CA tried these seeds when they were first made available. I don't know if any have survived.

Hello,

may I ask you how you germinated these seeds, and what the germination rate was? I have a handful of S. santosi seeds that have been sitting in warm, damp moss for several months now and they haven't done anything. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or they're just bad seeds, but my default assumption is always the former.

Also, on an unrelated note, I see you have listed on eBay what you describe as Kerriodoxa elegans aurea. I have a K. elegans seedling that looks just like that; I assumed it was due to a deficiency of something. Do you think it's a genetic sport? Have you seen other examples of very pale Keriodoxas in the seeds you have germinated? I have been wondering for a while why my seedling was so pale and how I could fix it, but if it's a lusus naturae that's always going to look that way and will survive, then that's very good news.
