I shall be buying large quantities of ensete ventricosum and maybe glaucum and even other ensete (wish I could find the Maurelii). I planted a number this year and they were so spectacular we will be growing a lot this coming year, but to get best prices I will need to buy thousands :-) (of various seeds).
Anyone interested in any of these seeds, drop me a PM or PKnop@NationalBotanicGarden.org
If you wish to check source, it is rarepalmseeds.com. If there is a plant you wish but I am not interested in, we can combine orders to get their wholesale price (they require significant minimums to order).
Our experience with the Ensete ventricosum and maurelii has been phenomenal - plants seeded in Feb/March are now 6 to 8 feet tall with totally amazing trunks (the leaf structure is an incredible architectural statement.
Agristarts does not have them currently, and almost for sure will not have the various ones we wish. We plan on planting in December/January to get a head start this year, and will treat many of them as an annual.
Germination last year was minimum 50%, so we are planning on same for this year.
