I collect castor plants and cross breed them to make new colors, I'm looking to pass my creations on to others that will enjoy growing them as much as I do, so if you have castor beans please let me know what you got, or if you would like some of the seeds I have, I'd be glad to send them to ya, I am also looking for midnight horror seeds aka Indian trumpet, I have a big collection of all kinds of seeds, let me know what you have to trade or what you are looking for

Ben,

Welcome to ATP! I confess I wouldn't wnat to trade for any tree seeds or castor beans, but thank you for the grimmest plant names I've heard in a while.

"Midnight Horror"
"Broken Bones Plant"
"Tree of Damocles"

Nice names! They sound like an element in a grim Sherlock Holmes story.

Hi Ben and welcome! I live just up the road in Summerville .. I found a source for your Midnight Horror seeds (halfway down the page):

http://seedrack.com/07.html

If you like scary plants then by all means you need to be growing some Devil's Claw - Proboscidea. I have seeds. The seed pods are downright scary with super sharp points and serrated edges.

Devil's Claw (Proboscidea parviflora var. hohokamiana)
"Listen & Silent are spelled with the same letters.

Think about it ; )
