Hi all, Does any one have some Puya seed going to waste? The varieties of the genus are very VERT limited here and I would really like to get my hands on a few species. If you have some seed to spare I would appreciate it very much.

I am also looking for some Pitcarnia and Dyckia specie seed.

Best Wishes,

Conrad

I just tossed a bunch of Pit xanthocalyx seed. However, I have extra of two hybrids that I made that I started this year and know to be viable.

Do you want Puya mirabilis seed? I have plenty of that.

Thanks 378, I will take whatever I can get! I assume that the seeds of Puya travel well. xanthocalyx is one of the 2 Pitc. I do have. I hope to be meeting with the local curator of the Botanical Gardens here and see what I can get there. I will accept any seed from the family. I am researching tissue culture of Broms as well. Vegetative and reproductive cultivation set up I have now, but more specialised methods, ( tissue culture) I would like to start soon.
