      Hello Luciana, Mother plants currently in flower–won’t have more to sell until we get seeds from the mother plants and plant them. A woody tropical in the family Boraginacea–it will take a year. Hit “waitlist” please. Richo

      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 !
