Hello,

I would die for some seeds of Sandersonia aurantiaca. 
Have been trying to get them for so long now. 

Best regards,

Olivier Antunes

Availability is based on a first come, first served system. When you receive your seeds/bulbs you will find, included with them, a statement of how much money you owe (usually $2.00 ? $5.00 per share of seeds or bulbs + postage and packaging charges), and instructions about how to pay. PAYMENT IS DUE AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE YOUR PACKAGE.

> TUBERS - in very limited supply:
> 
> 1. Sinningia cardinalis "Innocent"
> 2. Sinningia cardinalis
> 3. Sinningia "Peridots Sand Pebbles"
> 
> "The cardinalis were approaching their natural dormancy.? They should be only lightly watered until growth resumes, which could take a couple months.? The "Peridots Sand Pebbles" were in rampant growth & will probably grow vigorously immediately once repotted.? To my knowledge this hybrid never goes dormant (probably inherited from its Sinningia bullata ancestry).
> They are all bloom-sized & range from 2 to 6 years old.? I STRONGLY recommend wide shallow pots for these.? I had some planted in narrow deep pots and struggled tremendously extricating them this weekend.? The small pots caused their shapes to be malformed, too.? I think they'll approach normal shape again in a few years in good conditions."
