hahaha, the last thing I want is seeds! I must have 1,000 in the frige right now! There's a professional vegetable grower near my house, he has over five acres. I'm considering asking him if I can lease a bit of land for this wealth of seeds I have. Raised beds, under hoop houses is what I would do.

Very generous offer, Ron! But I'll pass this time.

Hi rucky ! I am new here and I am from Argentina. This is my second post. I just posted a reply about rooting epiphyllums.
Is it too difficult to send some seeds to Argentina ? I would love to have some.
I can send you some epiphyllum cuttings and some epiphyllum seeds in return.
I posted two pictures of my epiphyllum plants in the previous post, but I have several more.
If it is a problem for you, don't worry. And forget I ever asked you.
Thank you.

Ceci I am not sure how hard it is to send seeds to Argentina I suppose it would be like sending them anywhere I have had several requests and I'm just separating them from the fuzz now so I will see what I can do but never fear I have three more seed pods waiting to open and I just found 3 smaller ones just starting out So one way or another I'll be getting some to you.Send me a tree mail here with your address. I am not starting any new plants right now because we are selling our house and moving (I hope)........... rucky

Ron, in reading the posts I guess your moving to frigid Florida ! Am I correct? No seeds for me right now but thanks so much for the offer. I wanted to ask if your moving to or near Ft. Lauderdale; what are you going to do about all your plants? I'm sitting here under an electric blanket it's soooo cold, the heater element on my air conditioner must have blown out and since it will only be a few days of this ungodly cold
I've decided to not have it fixed yet, if I call for repair now they'll figure I'm desperate and over charge me, another week or so and it will be back in the eighty's. Oh, I almost forgot, Hi Ho everybody have a great day.

Hi, Jimbo!!! Cold here too! Wa! March is the coldest month of the year. I'm sleeping under THREE blankets! And I agree that the eighties, mid and upper, are the correct temps for human comfort.

Hi, cici! Big Grin Green Grin! Welcome! Tell us about your Adeniums, or are you getting started? Send me your address, too.

Hey, Doris, did you manage to plant the seeds I sent you so retardely? Did they sprout? They may have frozen in the mail. If they are really dry, they can go through the freezing mail OK, but I don't know if my drying gets them loww enough moisture content. "Juicy" seeds , when the freeze, the ice crystals break the seed, or something like that.

Hi Melissa ! Thank you for the welcome ! I don't have Adeniums. I have not found them here in Argentina.
I am not a collector. I only love gardening and I have different plants growing in my garden: orchids, epiphyllums, lilies ... the list goes on.
I recently have fallen in love with Adeniums, Mostly through pictures *Blush*

Doris, I wish I could post more often, it seems my life is just filled with woulda, coulda shoulda lately. all of my adenium are doing great though I neglect them badly. Melissa I'm wondering if your on a bunch of blood thinners as I am, I think thats the reason I get cold when it drops below 80°. I very much enjoy reading all the posts, and am so glad to see this thread so active. I check out the Florida thread and I think everyone has frozen to death Hilarious! Would love to see Wilfred post just to let us know he's alive and kicking. Love to all, bye bye for now.

Hello back to you, Jim! Adeniums don't really need a lot of care, they do get "loved to death" more often that neglected to death. I am on no medications at all. My blood is pretty thin because I eat a lot of fish oil suppliments, and I cook with olive oil and grapeseed oil. I have always been little miss broccoli and salads. ALL of my friends are on meds because they have high blood pressure and diabetes and emphysema and and and. I think it's from eating too much of commercial "foods' that are engineered to addict our taste buds. I am growing more and more pots of stuff like parsley, (I eat lots!) collards, kale, lettuce and beet greens. I may turn into a rabbit before long!

Doris, I think it was the seeds, not your experienced attentions. I'll send some more, when I can guess how to make them really dry so they won't freeze from too high a moisture content. There was a discussion in the Yahoo group about this a short while back.

Hi all sorry I haven't mailed the seeds yet I just had another pod open up and pulled the fuzz off of them now getting ready to separate the seeds into packets and put them in the mail I will label them as to the plants they came from. Jim I am moving to the Texas Hill Country its a little hotter in the summer and a little colder in the winter but way less humidity and no hurricanes. They do have some flooding problems but its usually goes away as fast as it comes. I love it out there lots of different lakes for me to fish. And I already hunt out there so I'll be closer to my hunting grounds. I am bringing all of my plants with me (I hope). I do like Fla. Was there last May and I still have relatives out there but I'm trying to get away from Gators and water moccasins I'm going to trade the water moccasins for rattlers but at least they give you some warning, I stepped on a cotton mouth a couple of years ago and amazingly even though he tried he didn't bite me for once in my life I was lucky.
I promise ya'll some seeds soon I have been busy with yard work and fishing so I'll get to it soon.......Ron

It seems a lot of work to move from one place to another. And to take your plants with you.
By the way Ron, I have been in Texas. One of my sons attended his grad studies at the University of Texas at Austin. I visited him twice while he was there. I also went to San Antonio. I liked Texas very much.
My son lives in Chicago now.

I'm late to the party as I've had a massive sinus infection last 2 weeks but am finally getting over it. I sent a tree mail with my address if any will be left over.
Smiling
