Because Nep seeds have a short shelf life - looking for seeds from vendors or posting for seeds is usually an exercise in futility.
- 95% of vendor seeds will not germinate
- your chances of posting at the exact time when someone happens to have fresh seeds are very low

Monitor the several USA CP forums regularly as there are frequent posts to giveaway (or sometimes sell) fresh Nep seeds. Also, if you monitor the forums, you'll often pick up tidbits in threads or chats who has had recent flowers & whether they might share the seeds. You'll also find some growers who have monster, constantly-flowering female plants which are seed-generating machines for them - these people are often willing to share seeds.

Most viable Nep seeds available in USA are hybrids. The species seeds that are available (99.9%) are illegally imported & poached from wild populations.
