Yeah Edward I think we're all trying to figure out the logistics of all of this. Regardless though we can definitely get the plants shipped to one of us only to reduce costs and the other person goes to pick them up. That might work for multiple groups of people depending how many individuals are involved. Anyways.......... still just playing with the idea on this thread with all involved so lets see what happens.
Ok just to get things started here my big Pachycentria glauca is producing a moderate amount of fruit and I can offer some for a SASE. I would like to try to send fruit that is as fresh as possible so whoever wants some can go right ahead and send me an envelope. I will try to send like 3 or 4 fruits to each person but depending how many people want some that may change.

Here is a fun little fact : in the wild some species of ants collects the fruits of the P. glauca and takes them back to their homes which sometimes happen to be inside other species of ant plants like Hydnophytums and Myrmecodias. Under the right conditions some of these seeds germinate and the end result is an Ant Plant growing out of another Ant Plant ! How cool is that ?!?
Lloyd, I love your modus operandi, we have to do what we have to do eh? Too bad it's to such lengths to access the American (and other offshore) resources. Customs have destroyed ficus seeds of mine because they weren't commercially packaged. I'm sure glad those seeds will never hurt the fig crops in Canada. Never tried plants, couldn't stand the thought of them getting destroyed.
From my research, p.glauca should be very easy to germinate. Moist LFS + Light = germination.
I would be interested in trying P.glauca from seed but prioritize others who don't yet grow the species in-front of my SASE since I do already have an established cutting of the plant. How's the H.formicarum seeds coming along? I'm quite interested in those, I bought around 20-ish from a grower in florida during the summer and the heatwave killed all the 20 potential plants.
Someone should try growing the P.glauca on a rubiaceae ant plant (myrmecodia or hydnophytum). It's hard to believe that P.glauca will germinate and grow out of the inside of an antplant but it would be interesting if it was tested. Actually, I would be willing to try growing a P.glauca on a rubiaceae ant plant! 2 ant plants= 2 times the fun!
