Where is adenium_ko?He seems to have disappeared off Ebay and his are the only seed I trust anymore.I have ordered from three other sellers this year
with results from zero germination to 44%.I'm tired of old,useless seed and have taken to leaving neutral feedback along with the germination rate. Thumb of 2012-07-01/gone2seed/a64319

On another forum (adenium forum on yahoo), I saw a person who formerly worked for him offering seeds. But aside from saying she was now doing her own business, she didn't offer any more information other that Mr. Ko was opening a nursery in mainland China.
Gardening is cheaper than therapy!

JT Melissa just posted this on another thread.

Mr. Ko went to Mainland China to start a big nursery. He mentioned on the Yahoo Adenium group that he will be selling seeds on Ebay again this summer. Not there as of right now.

Another seller announced herself to the Adenium group, then immediately drew attacks for using Mr. Ko's photos. I haven't ordered from her yet. She's in Australian dollars, says she'll be in US dollars next month or something.

Mr. Ko announced his disappearance a couple of months ago, reassuring us that he's be back on Ebay this summer. Not there as of this morning.
.
Here's another seller, but I know nothing of her!

Thanks for the info.I will wait until Ko is back up.I do have a few seed pods just forming.The thing about my seed pods is that they start forming this time of year and mature too late to be of any use this year.I have to keep them refrigerated over the winter and plant next spring.I have noticed that seed planted too late in the year,even though they germinate well,never seem to grow as well as spring or summer planted seed.

We on the Yahoo group agreed that Oct 1st is the cut-off date for sowing seed.
