Solanum wrightii/macranthum.... seeds sources

Posted by BronxFigs Zone-7 (My Page) on

Cannot locate a source for these seeds in the US, either commercial, or, private growers.

Please, please...find me a source for these seeds. I tried all the usual suspects but still come up empty. I can find the plant, but I need to grow some seeds for a project.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for the link and source. It's inconceivable that I cannot find a US source for these seeds.
I have never bought seeds from a foreign source, and if nothing shows up in The States, I'll have to order.

After searching for a couple of more hours for seeds, I just decided to be done with this whole business, and ordered seeds from the above link.

Thanks Dave, for the information. Now I wait for the seeds to come.

Since it is primarily a South American tropical I'm just guessing that it isn't a big demand item in the US - thus the lack of seeds. And trying to find a South American based seed supplier seems to be more difficult than most any place else for some reason.

Dave...

I'm guessing the same thing. But the nursery industry/plant retailers are in business to make a buck, and I believe that they would sell anything if there was a demand. Being a tropical plant, I would think, means little, if the public buys their products. The markets are loaded with Brugmansia, Hibiscus, and other plants that are not native to the US, and they have been mass produced, retailed for years in Garden Centers all over the world.

I'm now wondering if this plant has some major problems when grown in quantities needed for distribution? Who knows?

Anyway, I bought a few packets from your source. Now I will see what happens, assuming I successfully germinate the seeds.
