I am reposting this here
http://garden.org/thread/view_post/808816/
and following posts
I have lots of Adenium (obesum) seeds left.
If you would like some, please send me a T Mail with your address.
I placed the obesum in brackets because I am not sure if if the blossoms were selfed or if there is a small part of somalense or the multiflorum present. I remember years ago, some of the seedlings grew quickly relatively tall, while others stayed compact.

For those who tried to germinate them, here is small dish of my experiment, checking the ease of germination as comparison.
Result - no problem, the Adeniums are coming! Smiling the seeds were viable.

Ursula, I Tmailed you about how Adenium seeds must be sent in a bubble wrap padded envelope. Regular envelopes go through machinery that crushes Adenium seeds. Sad experience here!

Cheers,

Melissa

That is good information! Thanks, I didn't know that! Now hopefully I will get contacted if the seeds got destroyed, I can replace them.
