I was checking in on my seedling area recently and was very happy to find this. The first of the batch to germinate (for me), I hope there are many more to come. Sown October 13, 2015. First to germinate: December 3, 2015.
Thanks again Doug, I can't remember ever receiving seeds with such beautifully developed embryos before! Mine are also sprouting, but my friends have better cameras than I do, so I'll post a pic next time they come over.

...here are mine:
...I am really fired up about these! Germination has not ceased and seeds in both pots are continuously popping! A huge Thank You to DVG for the offer and Roraima and Lloyd for sharing their seeds with me.
Canada is going to have a lot of truncata in the next couple years.
I know I am not in Canada, but this is fantastic! It is exactly why I wonder why species Nep seeds are very common. It doesn't take many pods to make a solid number of seeds. It just takes one great person to make a species of Nep far more available. Nice work dvg!!!
