Tammy I found this You have to scoll down quite a bit but there is a section on seed I hope it helps From what I understand it takes quite a while to germinate [dunno] It's under the section titled" Tell me about fruits and seeds."

Absolutely great website. Wonderful article. I read it top to bottom and bookmarked it. I'll probably go back and read the question and answer section later. It was hard to believe that a cutting might stay viable for as long as a year. That means that if the seeds don't work out for me I may actually try for a cutting. Something I usually avoid lol. I'm such a chicken. Well thankyou very much for finding the article for me I appreciate it.

Your soo very welcome!
I also read that after the bloom opens you can cut it off put it in a jar with a lid place in the fridge and it should keep for several weeks, as opposed to a few hours if left on the plant! [Cool] [grin]

Hey Njoynit,

Did you ever receive your seeds? I couldn't wait any longer and planted 8 of the seed today. I really should have waited but I couldn't. I'm just busy having christmas the entire holiday season long lol.

That's a very healthy plant there. If the swap doesn't work for whatever reason I have a few I could send you. Just let me know and I'll put them in the mail. I'm so excited about mine I can hardly sit still and it's only been a few days and I check the dirt ever time I go into the bathroom. lol.
