    LOL Viper - this is SURELY the "strangest" thing that I have EVER seen on MASA for sale! Are these seeds "fertilized"? Meaning:

    Are they "guaranteed" to "pop" (once planted)?

    Viper - that is actually quite cheap. So - you say that the seeds germinate without any problems? I am soon getting a shipment from Moolis - can you possibly drop some seeds off at Moolis' shop for me? Not too many though. I am just looking at 10 or so. That Moolis can include this in the box for me?

    Viper, off topic but is your friend a cycad expert ? I have quite a few indigenous species in my garden in PTA which I will be selling (my tenants aren't looking after them properly and they are too large to bring to CT). Not sure if you can remember seeing them


    I actually just need species confirmed

    For us non green fingered experts, how do we go about germinating these seeds?

    I have a friend who is a horticulturist and he is selling his Cycads as they are moving to the Cape.
    He has mojaji and leboembensis.
    Marco if you are interested, please pm me and I will give you his
    contact details.
    Fish I got from you doing very very well.
