I've never seen Mauro offer Griffinia seeds. But he may in the future, 
although they are like some of the South African amaryllids and need to 
be planted right away.

Amaryllis-plus is run by Kevin Preuss who, along with Alan Meerow are 
basically the world experts on Griffinia. So with Kevin you know you're 
getting the right thing. Plus, he's breeding various hybrids and 
selecting superior clones that he hopes to name and then propagate and 
offer. So keep watching that site.

A couple of other places I've found that offer Griffinias via mail 
order (which grow quite well) are:
Gardino Nursery in Florida <>. They offer a 
clone of G. espiritensis.
And Twin Oaks Nursery in South Carolina <>. They offer a 
clone of G. liboniana (the one with spotted leaves).

Good luck!
