Looking for dudleya seed

Post by Aeonium2003 »

I thought this would be a good place to look for Dudleya seed (rather than fishy etsy and ebay listings). I'm looking for ethically sourced dudleya seed. Not poached from the habitat...


Send me a PM and we'll see if we can work something out... Thank you.

I recall CanD Plants offered seed of D. pachyphytum before, but they currently don't have it on their list https://www.canddplants.com/seed-list/. Maybe you can send an email and see when or if they'll have some ready?

Dudleya seed is ripe around mid-summer, mine are flowering now. Wait a few months and folks will have some on hand.

Dudleya germinate best on living moss, so you can start work on a flat to start them in now. The inland varieties particularly grow on moss on rocks in habitat. I live where they live, so I just sow on a flat or pots in the fall in partial shade and let the weather do the work for the most part.

I too live in/near the natural habitat, sandwiched between the habitat of D. cymosa, abramsii, and farinosa. Thank you for the information, I'll get things prepared. :)
