I was wondering if anyone is willing to ship Adonidia merrillii 'Christmas Palm' seeds  to Canada?

You might have better response if you post this request in the Palms/Plants/Seeds Wanted section.  The seeds are quite easily gathered but they are somewhat large so the issue is the shipping cost which was at least $15 for a small padded envelope the last time I shipped to Canada.  Maybe check with @NOT A TA in Florida who used to sell several common palm seeds on his website but he hasn't posted recently.  I remember he sold Adonidia seeds at one time anyway.

I really hope this isnt deemed as disrespectful or heartless, but my first thought was to check obituaries using the name listed in his profile. Found one out of Delray Beach, FL. I hope its just coincidence, but everything here that ive seen of him checks out on here. I really just dont know what to say. 

If anyone in the forum knows him a bit better and would care to check in on him and confirm either or, it would be greatly appreciated.

Rad Robs was the name he sold seed under, so unfortunately, It is likely him.

Yep @JLMhis shopify store lab-14.com has been down for quite some time and his eBay account is gone as well.

@amhis correct, the eBay account was radrobs and his shopify site sold custom car parts and palm seeds so its definitely him. That's a pretty narrow set of hobbies to be anyone else.

This really sucks.

My last order from his shopify store was delivered on Nov 12, 2022 a few weeks before his passing. 

The obituary says he passed in hospice but he never mentioned his health in any of our  communications, we only talked about... well just about palm trees.

At least we know he was still doing what he loved in the last weeks of his life.

About 15 of the Foxtail seeds from that order germinated a month or so ago and they're now potted if anyone would like one. 

Just send me a PM and I'll mail you a "Rad Rob Foxtail" seedling to carry on the memory.
