Long time ago, I got brought devil’s claw seeds from a friend, but, I failed to grow them.

On mid of January 2012, the friend drop me a PM and ask whether I want devil’s claw. Answer from me : I want!!!! May I know how much? She said : Free of charge!!! What a good friend is this!!!! Against, thanks… I got 3 species (each 5seeds) from the nice friend Ibicella lutea , Proboscidea parviflora and P. louisiana

On beginning of February 2012. I sowed them. Im only successfully grow Ibicella lutea , Proboscidea parviflora to adult size. Now, both of them are flowering!!!!

I successfully pollinate Proboscidea parviflora and not Ibicella lutea

At my house, I have 2 Ibicella lutea. I cross pollinate them also failed. Any suggestion on this? At my house, left few flower left for me to pollinate them. Help urgently needed. Thank you in advance

Casey, great work! From sowing to flowering in only two and a half months! Should I dwell in a flat with a balcony ever again in future I will try to grow them as well. I love their flowers!

Thanks for showing!

As for pollinating devil´s claws I have no clue unfortunately. :roll:

I soap the seed in fresh water for half ~ 1 day. Then, remove the black shell. You will see white inner part of seed. Outside it, still wrap with white transparent skin. remove it carefully, then, germination will be very fast

Hi

I need fresh Proboscidea parviflora seeds if you have got. I'm living in Hungary and I'm growing Ibicella lutea and P. louisianica. Maybe we can swop?

Regards

Perhaps it would be best to post this in the Sales forum.
