"Can anyone tell me where on earth I can buy the seeds for the 'Worsleya 
??? I have scoured EVERYWHERE from Brazil to the U.S.A including all over
Australia. I'm beginning to think I'll be able to find Saddam easier

Can anyone please help me???? Put me out of my misery "

    The same happened with Tecophilaea cyanocrocus years ago of which seed 
were commercially offered at high prices. Now they are seen in seed 
exchanges several times a year. It will take time
before Worsleya seed is more widely available.
     Brazil has severe penalties for collecting plants in the wild and 
Worsleya is federally endangered. This has removed a lot of the material 
from the trade. One of the main problems is that Worsleya has certain 
requirements that must be met. It is not a  weed!
     As for your question, a few seeds are available for sale every year in 
Australia and New Zealand. The problem is that their number is far exceeded 
by demand
