Me too, I did not recognize that name. Was that one on the seed list Top Tropicals sent out last week? I ordered a bunch myself but that one was not on my list.

My order was pretty tame, just things I want to play with and see if I can grow them from seed.

Billbergia braziliensis
Capsicum baccatum
Gloriosa plantii
Hyophorbe lagenicaulis (Bottle Palm)
Lapageria rosea
Musa Mini Thimble

cool! I got Delonix regia (I know...common for you guys) Ylang ylang, Bauhinia retusa, Hedychium elatum, the Parasol tree, a white Mucuna holtonii, Chamaedorea tepejilote, and Reihardtia simplex. All were cleaned except the Reihardtia, I had to clean them, but all look like they passed the float test LOL, I have them soaking and am going to try and germinate most in moss, and a few on paper towels

All mine were cleaned with the exception of the pepper. So far all I have done is make labels for them.
