Tacca nivea | White Bat Flower | Bat Head Lily | 20_Seeds


Here I am offering Seeds from Tacca nivea, also known as White Bat Flower, Bat Head Lily, and Devils Whiskers. This plant likes to be in the shade with no direct sunlight and it needs high humidity so you can use a rock tray to have standing water around the base of this plant, but not touching the pot itself or getting into the mix. We just want more water in the air around this plant. The bloom is extraordinary with the giant white blossoms shading a group of dangling seed pods, and then the cats whiskers get to be about 2 feet long on a mature plant. Not only does this have a spectacular bloom, but the large deeply veined leaves are also impressive. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11

Strelitzia nicolai | Giant Bird of Paradise | Wild Banana | 20_Seeds


Here I am offering Seeds from Strelitzia nicolai, also known as Giant Bird of Paradise, Natal Strelitzia, Wild Banana, and Wild Strelitzia. This is one of the very few plants which have been verified to contain the pigment bilirubin, which is usually found in animals. This plant prefers to live in full sun to bright shade and can tolerate a light frost. This plant can be grown inside to protect it from any hard frost, and then it can be moved outside in the Spring where the birds, bees, and butterflies can take advantage of it. This normally blooms from late Spring until the middle of the Summer. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11

Coffea arabica Caturra | Dwarf Coffee | 10_Seeds


Here I am offering Seeds from Coffea arabica Caturra, also known as a Dwarf Coffee. This plant is perfect for growing your own coffee indoors. Coffea arabica Caturra does not mind being in either shade or full sun and is much shorter than the normal coffee plant, making it a great selection as a house plant. I roast my own beans and almost all of the coffee I roast is arabica. I know that some people think robusta is better, but I like medium and light roasted coffees and that means arabica almost every time for me. This plant produces more coffee beans and matures quicker than common coffee plants. This is because the branches are shorter and closer together which directs more of the plants energy into producing coffee beans and growing to maturity. This variety is also more resistant to disease than the older arabica varieties. The white blossoms are scented and nicely fragrant. This plant is a larval host plant for the Half-blind sphinx Moth. It is also a nectar source for the Red-bordered Pixie, and Klugs Clearwing butterflies. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11

Pseudorhipsalis ramulosa | Red Rhipsalis | Mistletoe Cactus | 10_Seeds


Here I am offering seeds from Pseudorhipsalis ramulosa, also known as Red Rhipsalis, Red mistletoe cactus, and Rhipsalis ramulosa. This spectacular succulent is an eye catcher that has a magnificent bloom during warm weather which normally occurs in the middle of the Spring. The flat sectioned leaves can grow up to 4 feet long. This makes for one of the best house plants that you can find anywhere. This cactus is a tender perennial and likes to live in sun to light shade. In the plant world a synonym is not a name that means the same thing. A synonym is an incorrect name that was used for a plant so that now many people use this improper name to refer to the plant. Pseudorhipsalis ramulosa has so many wrong names that it has been referred to in the past that I must list them here. The known synonyms for this plant are Cereus ramulosus, Rhipsalis ramulosa, Hariota ramulosa, Disocactus ramulosus, Rhipsalis coriacea, Hariota coriacea, Rhipsalis angustissima, Rhipsalis jamaicensis, Rhipsalis purpusii, and Rhipsalis leiophloea. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11
