bananaman's Non-Carnivorous Seed Thread

by bananaman » Mon Nov 12, 2018 3:01 am

Hi everyone!
So, I collect lots of plants that aren't carnivorous, which means that I have extra seeds. So, I thought I'd share them with y'all. Basically, I'll list the non-carnivorous seeds I have available here, and you PM me with what you want if you are interested. You can either send a SASE or I'll mail it in a padded envelope if you cover shipping. For smaller seeds, I'd recommend SASE and for larger ones, I'd recommend a padded envelope, but I'll leave it up to you. Each packet will contain 10-20 seeds unless otherwise noted. I may list available quantities for some plants or I may not. The seeds could be old, but they're stored in the fridge and should have decent germination.

Seeds I currently have available:
Allium tuberosum (Garlic Chives)
Allowissadula holosericea (False Indian-Mallow)
Asclepias curassavica (Tropical Milkweed) -- both red and yellow, though IDK if they come true from seed
Capsicum annuum var. glabriusculum (Wild Chiletepin)
Mirabilis jalapa (4 O'Clock) (padded envelope highly recommended)
Myrtus communis (Myrtle)
Ricinus communis 'Impala' (Red Castor Bean) (padded envelope highly recommended)
Salvia coccinea — pink, Travis Co., TX (Tropical Sage)
Senna alata (Candlestick Plant)

Just an update that I'm still doing this, if anyone is interested.

This is the most common milkweed in cultivation. It’s not native to the US, but queen and monarch butterflies do eat lots of it. In areas where it doesn’t die in the winter, it can be a concern because of parasites, but that’s easy to solve by chopping it back to the ground a couple times a year.

The seeds are much easier to grow than other milkweeds — toss them into a pot and keep it warm. No stratification or other treatment necessary. These are a few years old, but I had great germination over winter with them.

Bumping because this is still active and I just added the seeds of this lovely pink form of Salvia coccinea I found growing wild. (The seeds are from a plant I grew from a cutting of a wild one.)

Just an FYI for anyone wanting to procure Bannaman's castor beans/plants. Some cities, like Hayward, California for example, don't allow possession of castor beans or castor bean plants within city limits. I'd check with your local laws to see if castor beans and plants are allowed in your area before asking for them.

I was hesitant to list them for that exact reason, but I decided to list them anyway because I have a lot and they are common ornamental plants. ‘Impala’ is a wonderful purple variety.

Here’s the reason I’m offering all these non-carnivorous seeds for SASE. This is just a portion of my seed stash. Every envelope is a different species, and I don’t have the time or space to grow them all out :p
