FREE CLIVIA ROBUSTA SEED :
« on: October 20, 2008, 12:32:38 »
I have some spare C. robusta seed from Lake Eland , in the Oribi Gorge.The berries were taken from gigantic adult plants.
There should be enough for two people.

The first two people to e-mail me can get these.
Regards,
Jaco.

Jaco, my seeds got here today and I want to publicly thank you for this generous gesture. Hopefully it will not be too many years before I can return the favour. Robusta!

Randy, we must remember to compare flowers one day! We'll do some sibling crosses.

Andries, too many seeds there to keep track of? :poke: You can send some to Jeffreys if it gets out of hand LOL

Thanks again for spreading the love Jaco!

Hi Michael,

Thanks. I'll do so. 

Jeffries is my favourite vakansie destination. So it make it easier to drop in their one day.

Jaco, you biscuit!  :clap: :good:

It is really so nice to see selflessness such as this.

I think we all end up with too much seed of not necessarily show quality plants (I'm not suggesting that your robusta is poor). I know because none of my plants are particularly special, but hell have I got plenty of seeds germinating and I could well have passed on many whilst at the same time minimising my own plant managent efforts.
I also have great difficulty in not at least attempting to germinate every seed.
In future I am going to give away all superfluous seeds of those plants less than A+ Grade (not many of those in my shade house) and perhaps cannot be sold for some sakgeld.

I wonder how long it will take before I give away show winning seeds? You know what, I don't care. If anyone has the patience to grow a winner from seed they must surely deserve it.

Time flies hey! Thought I'd give an update on these seeds.

My experience until now is that all robusta growers are cool people!
