Cardiocrinum giganteum seed anyone

16 years ago

Hi All,

My Cardiocrinum giganteum bloomed this year and they produce incredible numbers of seed in a single pod. Can anyone tell me what a mature seed looks like?? The pod split open so I assume they are ready to go.

I have no interest in growing these from seed at all. Thus, if anyone wants some seed they are more than welcome to them if they send me a self-addressed stamped envelope. As I said, I'm guessing they are mature, but I make no guarantees since I've never bothered with seed before!! Based on the number of seed in a single pod I'm sure I can give everyone 50 or so and they can have fun with them!! They take maybe 9 years to flower from seed and are not easy when they are small so I am more than willing to give them away. Once they are mature they are pretty easy as long as you live south of zone 6 and can supply deep shade, excellent drainage and keep the slugs away!!

Please e-mail me and I can give you my address :o) Dan
