      Hi! The seeds from Cordia are surprisingly trustworthy. I note some are in the making from mother plants. I’ll try to get you some when ready.

      Hi Rico, I am interested in Cordia seeds as well. Can I be included in the waiting of the mother plant too? I’m happy with just a few seeds. If she releases them. It’s up to her, really. Thank you !

      Hello my friends! Richo, how are the mother plants doing?
      Are the seeds starting to look fat and sticky? Maybe another 10 days or so; by Halloween!!?
