Later edit - Posted this on Tuesday & the seeds are all gone by Wed AM. If you hesitated, you missed out. I'm still harvesting seeds as they ripen so there will be another shipment in a few weeks ...
All year long (& out-of-season for N. America), I see people posting, looking for Cephalotus seeds. I gave a head's-up in Big Bella's thread a few days ago & they are now available in the ICPS seedbank. They even made it outside the special seed-donor-only section and are available to all members.

These are fresh seeds just harvested from several of my HG cephs so they have some good genes behind them.

For people that are interested I just mailed another bunch of seeds (~730) to the ICPS seedbank. I suspect that there will be enough for many to get some this time around (as long as they don't wait too long).

My harvest is now 98% complete - so no more seeds from me for another year... I'm hopeful that a few of my other clones (Czech Giant & HG progeny) will flower next year so I can play around trying to cross them.

Sidenote: if anyone has a small, colorful, typical Cephalotus & is interested in a 'real'** Cephalotus 'Hummer's Giant' - shoot me a PM. I'd like to get some new blood for crossing...

** - after growing my HG cephs for many years (which I can trace to John) and examining pics that people post, I suspect that many HG Cephs are not the real thing.
